Panasonic 45-175mm f/4.0-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Spanning a versatile telephoto range, the Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. from Panasonic is a 90-350mm equivalent lens designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The lens's optical design includes a pair of aspherical elements and a pair of extra-low dispersion elements, which help to control aberrations, distortion, and color fringing in order to realize a sharp, color-accurate image quality, and a floating elements system is also used to maintain clarity throughout the zoom and focus ranges. A Nano Surface Coating has also been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in harsh lighting conditions.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, this lens is also characterized by its power zoom design that affords smooth, controllable zoom adjustment via a built-in switch. POWER O.I.S. also helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting and a stepping AF motor, along with internal focusing design, contributes to quick, quiet focus performance to suit both photo and video applications.

Long-reaching telephoto zoom is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 90-350mm equivalent focal length range.
A pair of aspherical elements help reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to achieve notable sharpness and accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements suppress chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Floating elements system is used to maintain consistent image quality throughout the zoom and focus ranges.
A Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to noticeably reduce lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Stepping AF motor and internal focus design provides smooth and quiet focusing performance that is well-suited to both photo and video use.
POWER Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) minimizes the appearance of camera shake to realize sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
Power zoom design affords a smooth, controllable zooming motion that is adjustable via the built-in zoom lever.

    Panasonic 45-175mm f/4.0-5.6 reviews

    Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 56.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great lens, terrible quality conrtol I've tried 3 copies (2 @and 1 from @), all showed double image with IS on at shutter speed between 1/40-1/200. Not B&H fault but their copy was the worst. Will send for exchange in the hope to get a good one. Other that this crucial production and QC fault, the lens is perfect for m43: compact, lightweight, great color rendition and contrast even under overcast sky. At 1/500-1/1000 at full zoom the sharpness of the best of my 3 faulty ones was comparable to my best Pentax glass on K5. Could've been 5+ stars, hopefully Panasonic will put their act together. Releasing truckloads of faulty lenses to retailers is plainly stupid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Zoom Lens I also have the panasonic 100-300mm, but find I leave this lens on my camera most of the time. The 45mm wide end makes it more useful and the 175mm is still a lot of reach. I find the lens sharp and colorful. The power zoom feature is really nice for video.I love the internal focus. There's less chance of picking up dust and it's just plain a better system. The weight and internal focus make this a very unique lens in the m43 lineup. I really like this lens! Jack

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than I had expected Got this lens for my Olympus OM-D E-M5. I had the olympus 42-150mm and it sucked in dust while zooming, the Panasonic lens does not extend. It is light and compact, I use it on my Hikes and camping sites. I've read some reviews on this lens and some people complain about different problems in their images. If you know how to set up your camera you won't have any problems with this lens, If you do that is why there are post processing programs out there, shoot RAW and get your image the way you like it.I'm a Happy camper with this lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Bang for your Buck For the money, I could not have asked for a better lens. It utilizes some effective tools such as autofocus continuous mode, which is great for walking video with people. The image stabilizer has been great and I have not experienced any issues with it. I own a Lumix G5 and this lens did exactly what I need it to do. My only reason for not giving this 5 stars was because the lens does not appear to be durable. It's great that its lightweight which is much easier to carry for long periods of time compared to the Canon 60D with a similar focal length. Other than that, this is a great buy!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OIS still has problems... The BAD: Tried three copies of this lens, and all have the edge-doubling effect at shutter speeds between 1/80-1/250. In this range, at 175mm extension, the effect was there in 40% of my images, even after applying the firmware update. The GOOD: This lens is much sharper at f/5.6 and at the long end than the 45-200 and not much more than half the weight. Because it does not extend externally, it's immune to zoom creep, an less likely to pump dust into the camera. These are all reasons to get the lens, but the edge doubling has decided me against it. Some users report no problems with this lens. It seems to be batch dependent and to a lesser extent camera body dependent. But on my G1, I have so far been unable to find a copy without this defect.
    Date published: 2012-04-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice match with GM-1 I'm very pleased with this lens. Its a nice extension to the kit 12-32mm kit lens for my Lumix GM-1. Use the GM-1 when I want lighter gear that attracts less attention than my Nikon D-800E (e.g., travel, street photos). So far I've used the 45-175mm for street photos and landscapes. I'm very happy with the crisp quality of the images.
    Date published: 2014-06-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay, But Not Great It shoots just fine but the images lack some of the sharpness that I like. I use this with a JVC GY LS-300 and it doesn't quite compare to the Rokinons for sharpness. But it is the only zoom currently on the market that works with my camera. Just wish I had more choices. So I learn to live with it when I need a zoom shot.
    Date published: 2016-02-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with Blackmagic Studio Camera! The lens is great! The motorized zoom and focus abilities utilize the features built into the Blackmagic Studio Camera perfectly at a minimal price point!
