Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm f/4 Macro Reviews
Nice all in one/travel lens
I bought it with the S5II body. Overall I'm happy with the item. I have had it for a few weeks, and I've shoot both photos and videos. I did not do an extensive test, just put it to moderate use. So far, sharpness is good enough for me, bokeh is more than what I expected from an F4. I like the constant F4, I really love the 24-105mm range and stabilization (I came from the Tamron 28-200mm for E mount, which I always wish a wider end and stabilization). The size and weight (along with the S5II body) is a bit bigger than I expected, but I'm willing to accept it considering everything it offers. It balances ok with the S5Ii body. I did find the focus to be a bit slow sometimes, and this could also be the body not the lens. What I can say is, after using it for a couple weeks, I sold my Sony A7III and Tamron 28-200. Pro: range of focal length some macro ability stabilization sharpness more bokeh than I expected from a F4 having switches on the lens Con: some soap bubble effect in the bokeh, looks a little busy size and weight focus is a bit slow sometimes
versatile, practical and well thought out, not bad.
Having owned the Lumix dc-s1r now for close to two years and taken 2000 plus photos using 8 of their Lumix lenses I own, I thought I would clarify this lens for those who may snub it like I did. When first released without the film-ware update I had major problems with accurate focus etc. The renditions were not even close to the Lumix 50mm f1.4 prime lens I owned. Last month , after shooting fall landscapes for a week, I placed it back on the camera having the new film-ware. My original reservations by and large have vanished and I found myself enjoying photography without changing lenses as often. The 24mm widest range is really pretty sharp and I find the 105mm to be a great match for an occasional quick portrait. Wide open or stopped down this lens performs at about 85% to 90%quality of the 4 additional Lumix zooms I own. The macro is actually better than I tested before and the lens, along with the stabilization is really a portable dream to use. Color is excellent and out of focus areas are not bad at all. Just thought I should share my original reservations and final conclusions.
Image quality is great but watch the OIS button
Have been using this lens with the Pan S1H for over a year now. Very pleased with the image quality and focusing speeds. It's heavy, but that's understandable given the quality of image. My only gripe is the OIS button - it takes very little to switch it off. Simply grasping the lens wrong or having the lens bump something (body part, backpack) can move the switch. On several occasions it wasn't until post production that I realized the switch had been turned off. Sure, the S1H viewfinder can show that OIS has been disabled on the lens, but when you're paying more attention to the fundamentals of capturing the moment this is easy to overlook.
Great Kit lens!
This Panasonic 24/105 F4 lens takes great photos as well as being a great video lens! You can still get some nice bokeh at F4 to 5.6, the background is soft and pleasing to the eye of course!! Great starter lens for the S1R or the SL2!
great low light lens
have used lens on several l mount cameras work really good in low light images are very good
This is an excellent all-around lens for my Lumix S1H. However the first one that I received was defective and would not auto focus. I had to exchange it and the second one works beautifully.
Good Sharp Focus
I have been using it on Leica TL2. I'm very happy with it. It works on APS-C.
Very good lens that very versatile
This is the most versatile lens I've ever owned. Very good AF and fairly small for what it is.
