Panasonic 14-140mm Overview

  • 1Description

The Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S. Lens has an amazing focal range coupled with silent focus and electronic aperture adjustments, making this lens perfectly suited for all photo and video applications. Adopting the Micro Four Thirds System standard, the lens offers a wide and long zoom range that is equivalent to 28mm to 280mm on a full frame camera. This will suit a large variety of shooting situations, from scenery to portraits or telephoto shots, in a compact and lightweight body.

The lens uses four aspherical lenses and two ED lenses to achieve dramatic downsizing despite its powerful 10x optical zoom, while minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration. Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses the blurring that is commonly caused by hand-shake, making it easy to shoot clear shots even at telephoto range or in dimly lit places without using a tripod.

    Panasonic 14-140mm Reviews

    Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S. is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel lens There is a bit of a sticker shock when looking at this lens. For my full frame camera I am used to spending $1000 or $2000 for a single lens but for E-P1 it seemed like a stretch. After deliberation I decided to give it a try since I hate changing lenses too much when traveling with my family. Wow! What a difference. 14-140mm replaced my 14-42mm and 45-200mm. Performance is very good for a travel lens; the best out of all the super zooms I have used. Construction appears very good and zooms smoothly. As you can see this is not the fastest lens (in terms of aperture) and can hunt in bad lighting; but works quite in normal lighting situations and gives me the convenience which was the main reason to get E-P1.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I got this lens with the Black Magic Pocket mainly because it was one of the higher-rated lenses for micro-four-thirds systems. I gotta admit, it was better quality than I expected. High quality plastic outer-shell with a nice weight. Not cheap, light weight, more like a bit of heavy weight; you can feel it has good glass and metal internals. But not too heavy. Definitely feels like quality in the hand. A good f-stop for the price and the zoom isn't loose. It has a certain resistance to it which helps eliminate lens-creep. Great lens and glass quality for the price. Sharp and decent color quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect lens for travelling Whilst fortunate enough to have two Lumix cameras it was still getting a little tedious changing lenses depending on what I was wanting to shoot. (And always having two cameras around my neck!) With this lens I comfortably travelled around NYC without ever needing to reach for the other camera or change to another lens. It has also taken some lovely shots, including nice panoramas for stitching together later, wide shots capturing a large scene and very good close-ups to get in close to the action. (14-140mm or 28-280mm 35mm equivalent.) All-in-all I am extremely happy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but... I'm using the lens for video professionally with a Panasonic GH2. It's fantastic to have one lens that can do everything from macro work to a wide industrial warehouse shot in low light. This lens makes it possible to do beautiful photography and video without compromising either. However, even with the 1.4 firmware upgrade, this lens/gh2 combo will hunt for focus in cases where a dedicated video camera usually does not. I do suspect that the lens will perform better as my knowledge of this system improves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens- Worth the investment!! This lens is very high quality, and is one of the better micro four-thirds choices. I am using the lens with the Olympus ELP1, and all seems to be going well. One word of advice- since the ELP1 has internal stabilization control, it is better to turn the lens stabilization to the off position if using with an Olympus camera. The value of these smaller (and lighter) lenses cannot be overstated. They do an incredible job and where lugging heavy equipment is not an option, or you want to enjoy your travel without an extra camel, the micro four-thirds is just the ticket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than worth the money and fun to use Hi, I bought the lens with the Panasonic GH1 and am currently using it on an Olympus E-M10. Construction is good with a satisfying feel of density. There is no creeping. It actually improves the handability of the E-M10 which is truly small. I am (also) a fine art photographer and thoroughly enjoy the versatility of its range (no hustle changing lenses). In terms of IQ, I am attaching two pictures. The orchid flowers were taken at about 140mm equivalent, f/8, 1/125sec, ISO400. The birds are from yesterday at 280mm equivalent, f/8, 1/800sec, ISO 1600. You be the judge.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than I had anticipated.... I recently purchased this lens to complement my recently acquired Olympus EP-2 lens. Not personally happy with the Olympus kit lens that came with the camera, I wanted a good all-around long zoom that would serve me well in most situations. I knew the 14-140 was more expensive than many of the 4/3 lenses out there, but I felt compelled to order this lens. When it arrived I was not disappointed. When I took it out of the box the first thing I was reminded of was its similarity in quality to the expensive Panny/Leica 14-150 for regular 4/3 cameras - that is built superbly and indicative of a work of fine art. Image-wise, it was a huge step over the Olympus kit lens that I had attached. The clarity and contrasts of the images coming from this combo have been superb and the OIS on this lens works superbly! I'm glad to have purchased this lens and it's the one that will stay on my EP-2 most of the time. I say it's strongly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB lens (when used with GH2) As a kit lens, this is superb. I got this along with the GH2 (in Japan) and since it has an effective 28 -280mm range, it was the only lens I needed for a casual travel session. This is also attributed to the micro4/3 and may not just be a lens issue. But when you have to travel light, yet need a variation of lens that autofocus fast in tele (with GH2), then this is the obvious choice. The quality of the image is excellent as well. If you can only bring one lens on your trip, for both video and stills, this is it. Without compromise.

    question

    What is the difference between Mega OIS and Power OIS ?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The POWER Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) keeps your images free of blur, even if your hands are unsteady, by compensating for camera shake twice as effectively as MEGA O.I.S. The Power O.I.S. is a newer technology then mega O.I.S. so it helps stabilize the lens better.

    question

    Hi,Is this a wide angle lens?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It would be considered wide angle at 14mm's. It is an all purpose zoom with a good amount of wide angle and a lot of zoom.
