Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 II Reviews

Capable Budget Lens For Run and Gun Style Videos

By Hugh
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-03

I am frequently assigned run and gun style documentary shoots for the county for whom I work and this lens functions and performs well for that purpose. Most of the time my assignments do not give me ample prep time to know what shots I will need and the variable focal lengths this lens has allows me to capture footage perfectly for subjects whose actions and movements I am unable to anticipate. This lens has never let me down and I find myself using it most of the time with my Panasonic GH5s. Since the majority of my shots take place outside in bright sunlight I use this lens in conjunction with a variable neutral density filter, giving me perfect control over exposure 100% of the time. It's lightweight and perfect for my needs.

Good, but limited

Typical for a wide range zoom it requires some stopping down for sharpness across the frame. I found F8 to be the best compromise. This was good for outdoor daylight. It also seemed to have more problems with bright objects within the frame, losing contrast significantly. But the upside is that is light and portable, so may be good for traveling with minimal equipment.

Excellent All-In-One Lens

This Gen II lens makes for a great all-in-one lens if you want to only take one camera/lens out for shooting. It's true to the early Micro 4/3's mandate in providing a lens capable of capturing wonderful images in a small, compact, light package. Yes, it's better suited to bright outdoor shooting (or inside with good light), but for the size, weight and image quality, worth the compromise for it's relatively small aperture range. All-in-all, a wonderful lens and highly recommended!

Good for hobbyists

I am a hobbyist photographer and shoot primarily street photography with little video usage. This was purchased to have more reach without getting in someone’s space. For the beginner or hobbyist, this lens is good, If you are wanting better, sharper images then you need to buy the more “pro” grade/expensive lenses. For this hobbyist, it does the job.

Very nice compact lens.

I have had this lens now for two weeks. It is sharp, the controls are well placed, and the zoom is smooth. I work in a very dusty area in Arizona and I believe it is fairly well protected if taken care of. The lens shade is well-made and it seems to protect the lens from flare adequately. All in all I am pretty well pleased with the results and the quality of the lens.

Good all round lens. Smooth.

I'm a professional videographer, so I shouldn't like this lens. But I do. My short review for the Lumix 14-140mm F3.5-5.6 II: There's lots of versions of this lens; it's a bit confusing. The latest version, and the version you want, says H-FSA14140 on the box and the barrel. If you are buying one used, it's almost impossible to tell from photos, just confirm by message before you buy, or ask for a photo of the engraving with the model number. I've owned most of the different versions, and I like this one the best. But.... First, let me just say this really isn't a lens I would normally buy, because it is not very fast and it is not super sharp. Having said that, I will make an exception here because it has a big range, great IS, good color, and, importantly, the image looks good. The fact is, for a lot of group shots or head shots when filming a show, it's *more* important that the image looks good than that we can see every wart and freckle. Overall, it's a step down in sharpness from my Panny 35-100/2.8, but that lens is a legend. Also, it isn't really sharper than the cheap, super light-weight Olly 40-150 (I have two of these). The difference is that the 14-140 goes much wider, and it has IS. Also, the Olly kind of fizzles out at the long end, the Panny, not so much. It's by no means a macro lens, but you can get a decent closeup. Also, I was not so pleased with the 12-100 which is the other lens I was looking at for something to give me wide+long. Thi latest model in the lineup for the 14-140 has the latest image stabilization, some very basic weather sealing, and it's lighter than the very first version which I bought years a go as a kit with my GH1. It's a very handy lens to have. Although not super sharp, it makes good images.

Unmatched Versatility for Travel, Nature, Street

By Peter

This should be the standard kit lens. It's small for its range, light, and makes great pictures. Dual stabilization on stabilized Panasonic bodies means I get clean images at low ISO, that I totally did not expect to get. The weather sealing has worked in all kinds of weather. Mounted on a GX85, it feels good in the hand. It is the one, go-anywhere-prepared lens in the Lumix range. I cannot complain about the price, even. Other system's wide range zooms are either modest performers, or heavy and expensive to get good performance. This lens does well, and you pay for it. If it weren't for this lens I would have ditched Micro Four Thirds (or any mirrorless system) already, just from being tired of lens changes. It very nearly replaces the kit 12-32, 40-150 lenses for the GX85 kit, so you can stop changing lenses so much. I honestly don't understand why some other zoom lenses in the Lumix range even exist, with this one being so good. Cons are pretty obvious- You may choose to swap it for an ultrawide sometimes. 14mm is not wide enough for lots of travel or nature situations. Small for its range, it's still not a small lens. In my dreams, it would retract like the 12-32, so it would be far easier to carry. Works best with an add-on hand grip for a rangefinder body. This lets you carry it in hand and still relax your grip a bit. The hood helps a lot when shooting into sunlit water, but the lens does loose contrast in that scenario, where strong light is coming from multiple directions. Not bright enough for low light shots without motion blur, without boosting ISO.

Better than it should be

By Norman

Decided to consolidate my 14-42 II and 45-150 to reduce the number of lenses in my collection. Pixel-peeping and technical reviews aside, real-world use produces sharp images and excellent IQ. The new splash/dust resistance is a welcome feature when you don't know what you'll run into. Focus speed is great on the newer m43 bodies with 1st curtain and/or silent shutter, there is no shock that I can find. The zoom ring is slight stiff, but becomes smoother over time. Built quality is well above average and it lends itself to confident use. Highly recommended for eliminating the which lens confusion with reliable results. To protect the wider lens element, I got a B+W XSPro Clear that doesn't seem to add any ghosting or flare issues. Paired with an ultra-wide or faster prime, an excellent travel kit. I'd buy it again.

Asked by: Josh
The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens does feature "Internal Focus", but not "Internal zoom". When one is zooming with this 14-140mm lens the length of the lens will almost double when one is fully zoomed to 140mm.
