Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 Overview

More than just the lens, the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens with Circular Polarizer and UV Filters Kit from B&H bundles the telephoto zoom with a 52mm circular polarizer filter and a 52mm UV filter.

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens

Covering portrait-length to telephoto perspectives, the Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. Lens from Panasonic is compatible with Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 90-300mm equivalent focal length range. One UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) element pairs with two aspherical elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination. Multi-coatings have also been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity in harsh lighting conditions.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, this lens also features a stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and movie shooting. Additionally, MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.

Designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens provides a 90-300mm equivalent focal length range to cover a variety of telephoto perspectives.
One UHR element helps to achieve even illumination and sharpness for consistent performance throughout the aperture and zoom ranges.
A pair of aspherical elements reduces spherical aberration and distortion for increased sharpness and clarity.
Multi-coated elements help to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy.
MEGA O.I.S. compensates for camera shake in order to realize sharper photos and videos when shooting handheld.
Stepping motor provides smooth, near-silent autofocus that is compatible with Lumix cameras' high-speed contrast-detection systems.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.

Luminesque 52mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit

Combining two of the most useful filters available, Luminesque's 52mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit is well-suited to all forms of photography. Both filters are constructed from Schott optical glass and feature a 12-layer multi-coating for maintained clarity and image quality. Each filter is also set in an anodized aluminum filter ring, with the UV filter featuring a slim 3.4mm-thick profile to lessen the likelihood of vignetting with wide-angle lenses.

The UV filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. It is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times in order to reduce dust and moisture from reaching the front lens element and to provide additional protection in case of accidental impacts. Its 12-layer multi-coating also helps to achieve 98.2% light transmission for faithful color reproduction and contrast.

The circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

Luminesque PRO

  • Constructed from Schott optical glass for maintained image quality and clarity.
  • A 12-layer multi-coating helps to reduce surface reflections and glare for improved contrast and color neutrality.
  • Anodized aluminum filter rings feature a knurled top edge for easier installation and removal.

UV Slim Filter

  • Absorbs UV light and reduces bluish cast of daylight for greater image clarity.
  • Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
  • Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching the front lens element.
  • 12-layer multi-coating helps to realize a high light transmission rate of 98.2%.
  • Slim filter ring incorporates front threads and measures 3.4mm-thick to lessen the likelihood of vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses.

Circular Polarizer Filter

  • Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
  • Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
  • Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
  • Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.

A great lens fo my Panasonic Gx 9. Great results and when I pair it with Topaz sharing AI cannot see any difference from my very expensive glass. I mainly shoot street but for the occasions I shoot long distance this lens does a great price and is lightweight for travel.

What a buy

Being a professional photographer, this lens is excellent for a wide array of photography whether its close ups or being far from something but needing that for a shot

Light, sharp, affordable, well-made

I sold the Oly equivalent for this one because it's more compact, doesn't feel as cheap and doesn't extend very far at full zoom. I use it all the time for casual wildlife photos. Nothing about it bothers me and I like that the max aperture is a little larger than we typically get these days, which tends to be 6.3 or even 7.1.

A nice lens for the price.

I purchased the 45-150 mm lens in addition to the kit lens. A great lens with nice reach for a great price. I purchased the lens/GX9 for my hiking/cycling needs and have not been disappointed.

Excellent for a kit zoom

This lens is better than it has any right to be for the price. Cheap kit telephotos used to be terrible, this lens is a pleasant surprise! I have several good Panasonic primes and this lens compares very well at same apertures. I like it because it's so small and light for the range. Obviously it's not a low light shooter with the aperture range, but in good light it delivers. The zoom ring is not the smoothest but that's not surprising for the price. Overall this tiny telephoto is excellent in my book.

Just ok for price

Very dark lens. Autofocus is like squint sniper. It is better to add money and buy something from the summilux series fixes.
