Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f/4 Overview

  • 1Description

Spanning a useful range of wide-angle focal lengths, the Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f/4 ASPH. from Panasonic is a versatile wide zoom for Micro Four Thirds cameras, and offers a 14-28mm equivalent focal length. Well-suited for landscape, nature, and architectural applications, the wide field of view is complemented by a constant f/4 maximum aperture for consistent illumination throughout the zoom range. The optical design makes use of low dispersion and aspherical glass elements to control a variety of aberrations and color fringing for notable sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy, and individual elements are also multi-coated to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast. Additionally, the lens features a built-in petal-shaped lens hood to guard the front element from stray light to further reduce flaring and surface reflections.

Ultra-wide zoom for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras provides a 14-28mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture delivers consistent performance and illumination throughout the zoom range.
Four extra-low dispersion elements help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to achieve high clarity and color accuracy. Additionally, a pair of aspherical elements are featured in the optical design to control spherical aberrations and distortion for notable sharpness.
Individual elements have been multi-coated to effectively reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.
Autofocus motor supports camera's contrast detection for precise focusing performance. AF can also be manually overridden for more fine-tuned control.
Built-in petal-shaped lens hood shields the front element from stray light and helps reduce flare.

    Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f/4 Reviews

    Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f/4 ASPH. Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 158.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lens I received this lens about three weeks ago. I'm primarily using it for seascape photos, which were severely lacking in width with my other lenses. Although I only tested it on a couple of interior shots, I do intend on using it inside as well. I really like the build quality of this lens and the zoom, of course. I have the 14mm, 20mm and 25mm MFT primaries, and wanted something for below 14mm. This fits the bill perfectly and I find myself using it set at 7mm most often. I was initially undecided whether to get this or the 8mm fisheye, but I'm very happy I got this, as it keeps straight lines straight. For my work, this lens makes much more sense. No regrets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now that's WIDE This lens is truly remarkable in just how astonishingly wide it can shoot. The wide side starting at 7mm (14mm equivalent FL) can create some really dramatic effects. Zoom to 14 makes it reasonably handy as a somewhat wide walkaround lens (though the Oly 9-18 would be more versatile for that and covers a similar range). Sharp throughout the range. Pros: - Light - Small for what it is - Constant f/4 - Fixed petal hood - Very little distortion throughout the FL (most noticeable at 7) Cons: - Expensive - Can not take filters - Large, exposed front element (scares me) - Max aperture of f/4

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing wide angle performance! Amazing wide angle zoom range. This little gem is the most versatile lens for interior and urban architectural photography I've ever owned in 40+ years as an enthusiast photographer. Somewhat pricey, but it is sturdy, fast and a delight to handle - you certainly get what you pay for. After considering the Olympus EM-1 I invested in a full Lumix GX7 system and couldn't be happier with my decision. I also purchased the 12-35mm f/2.8 and the 35-100mm f/2.8 zoom which provides a continuous shooting range of 14-200mm equivalent. I am also considering replacing this lens with the Olympus 12-14mm f/2.8 when it becomes available for the extra brightness in interiors work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meet the equivalent of Nikkor 14-24 mm I mostly use wide angle lenses (fixed-focal length/prime or zooms). For the past 3 years my main camera has been a Nikon D3combined with a 14-24 mm zoom (Nikon) since Dec. 2008, and now a 16-35 mm too. Acquiring and using the 14-24 mm 2 years ago was a rare treat in quality equipment and quality results. Last summer I had tried the Olympus super-wide zoom on my Panasonic GF1. It was ok: interesting super-wide angle of course, but compared with the above lenses not that sharp, + more vignetting, and distortion. The Panasonic 7-14 mm erased that semi-frustration: it is sharp! A very useful lens that I now use most of the time (especially when traveling: less weight and bulk than D3 + 14-24 mm. Great lens. not cheap but a real investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I was very hesitant on spending $1K on this lens, I passed on the Nikon 14-28 for my D800E and I settled for a Tokina 16-28 an enormous chunk of good glass for $7/800 and paying so much for this little lens seemed preposterous also considering that it's F4 not F2.8. I've to say though that I'm VERY happy, the lens is very sharp, AF is fast, size is actually an advantage with my GH3, it let me have a very compact kit. Since the lens is sharp full open I don't miss too much F2.8 anyway, I normally stop down my F2.8 lenses to F4 or more soI'm OK for my type of photography. If you are hesitant, just buy it, you will not regret it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wide-angle lens for my GF1 I bought this lens in advance of a trip to Acadia National Park, Maine. I was traveling light -- instead of my D300 and associated lenses, I brought only my GF1, 20mm f/1.7, and this lens. I shot with this lens 80% of the time and have been very pleased with the results. I shot several HDR sequences hand held with this lens and the GF1 and processed them with Photomatix Pro, and the results are wonderful. It is pricey, but it appears to be an excellent lens. This is also the first lens I've owned that will not accept filters (due to the large front element), but so far that has not been a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEO! I have been using the Lumix G Vario 7-14mm for over 6 months now. When I switched from the Canon 5D to the Panasonic GH4 due to its 4k capabilities, this was one of the first lenses I picked up, and so far I have been very impressed. I shoot real estate Photography and Video walkthroughs, and this is definitely the to go lens for my profession. It's light, small (fits in the tiniest bathrooms) , and nicely built. The image quality is outstanding, especially when it comes to shooting 4k. There is so much detail in each shot, makes my job incredibly easy. Do be careful with the distortion when using it with the GH4, I tend to shoot my interior shots at 8.5mm, depending on room of course, but Lightroom takes care of the distortion in no time. Overall, great product, incredibly wide, doesn't have soft edges, and really really sharp!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 ASPH LUMIX G VARIO The lens is very small and uses a complex design of 16 elements in 12 groups, with 2 aspherical elements, weighing in at just 300 grams (just over 10oz), due to its plastic construction. As the four-thirds system mount produces a 2x ''crop factor,'' the lens produces an effective field of view of 14-28mm when mounted on a Panasonic G-1 or GH-1. The lens features a constant F4 aperture and a fixed lens hood; the large protruding front element precludes the use of screw-mounted filters. Lens are very sharp, but when stopped down to F22 blur occurs. Distortion is extremely well-controlled in this lens, with practically no distortion between 8-12mm. overall..i think this lens is a great performer!

    Where can I find a replacement front lens cap for this lens?
    Asked by: Jason D.
    Unfortunately we do not carry the replacement lens cap for the 7-14mm lens, but I was able to find the name of the lens cap: Panasonic VFC4412. You would have to search for that item elsewhere to find a replacement for your lens.

    When mounted on a GH4 and filming video, is there geometric correction available for the distortion of this lens?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    There are post production plug-ins available for removing video lens distortion. It is a process and be prepared to do some work. We suggest starting with Adobe's lens distortion removal software.

    Would this lens be suitable for real estate ...

    Would this lens be suitable for real estate photos mounted on a GH5?
    Asked by: Barry
    Yes, this would be a great choice for Real Estate Photos with the Panasonic GH5. It is one of the widest lenses available for use with an MFT mount camera like the GH5.

    At 7mm how bad is the fisheye type distortion for architectural work? From seeing samples it looks much better that some other super wide lenses.
    Asked by: peter
    It's not bad at all depending on how close or far away the subject of the image is. For very close shots, it can be noticeable.

    Does this 7-14mm lens have IS? How steady is this with the GH5, using in-body IS if running and gunning? This 7-14mm F4 VS the OLY 7-14mm 2.8? Any pro suggestions?
    Asked by: Henry
    Hi, Henry, I am a beginning photographer and I got this lens as a gift. I needed a wide angle to photograph small rooms in my real estate business. The non-detachable lens hood casts shadows when using the built-in flash, so I am disappointed because it doesn't suit my needs. But, it was a gift, so I can't complain.

    Is this lens weather sealed? How does it work in rainy days?
    Asked by: Alan R.
    Why in the world don't you check the manufacturers website for this info. I believe no is the answer. I do not ever use it in rainy weather.

    All I can tell you is that it works fine on a GH4.
