Product Description

From the Manufacturer


Panasonic H-VS014140 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 OIS Video Optimized Micro Four Thirds Lens for Panasonic Digital SLM Cameras


An Exclusive Micro Four-Thirds Lens System that Moves the Photography World

With a radical reduction of about half the size and weight of the back length of the lens, mix it up and take photography to another level in the fun factor. In the Micro Four-Thirds System standard, the new camera lens offers a wide and long zoom range of 14-140mm (35mm camera equivalent: 28-280mm) that fits a wide range of shooting situations like scenery to portraits to telephoto shots.

Minimized Distortion
Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)

The new camera lens system 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.

Movie Makers, Revel in Quieter Recording with G Micro System
HD Video Support

The LUMIX G interchangeable lens incorporates an inner focus direct-drive linear motor for focusing. The smooth, silent operation of its fast and accurate contrast Auto Focus system, supports both photo and movie recording capabilities of the G Series cameras while minimizing distortion.

Durable High Performance in a Compact Lens

Four aspherical lenses and two ED lenses offer superb optical performance. It is ideal for outdoor photography enthusiasts with protection against nature's elements. Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings.

I use this lens on my GH1 and sometimes on my E-PL1 and it's simply fantastic. The fact that it gives you such range and operates silently when you want to take movies is a great combo.

It's been rated to be among the best in super zoom lenses equal or better than the top offerings from Tamron and certainly better than the Nikon and Canon equivalents according to DPReview. From my real world results, I have to agree 100%.

I do wish it was a little lighter, but it's still not bad carrying it around all day. I've traveled with it twice so far and it covers every length you could want and delivers great quality. Remember to use the provided lens hood or else you sacrifice a certain amount of contrast in your photos. Most people don't realize the hood is not just to help flare and slam the lens for their own mistakes.

If you have a Panasonic m43 body, this lens is a no brained because of it's in lens IS. On Olympus bodies it's equally great because you can choose either the lens IS or the in body IS.

I almost didn't buy this lens because of another review. The GF1 is my only high-quality camera and I got it with the pancake lens for better portability. I'm an amateur photographer and only on seldom occasions take pictures on the P mode rather than the idiot-simple iA mode. As any owner of the GF1 can attest, the GF1 performance is so good with the pancake lens that it turns anyone into an artist. However, it does not have a zoom. So, my quest for a zoom lens began and I eventually decided on the Panasonic 14-140mm. I dreaded that it might be too uncomfortably big, but it's not really an issue as you learn to balance the camera by its body and lens. I did follow someone else suggestion on getting a 2 Million Dollar Home Crumpler bag for it and I'm glad I did. Trying to carry the lens around the neck would probably not make much sense. Anyway, I had removed the neck strap a while back already and replaced it with a sturdy wrist strap.

I've been using it for a few weeks and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I only use it during the day where the slower shutter speed is a non-issue. I'm very glad I got the 10x zoom instead of the 3x zoom from Olympus. The latter might have been better as a replacement for the pancake, but that wasn't my objective. The optical image stabilization (OIS) feels almost like a must have, especially at the longer zoom range. With the Crumpler bag, the camera is easy to carry, protected, and generally not obstructive when the 14-140mm lens is attached. I haven't relied much on the silent focus and progressive exposure change which is built into this lens. It's mostly useful for video, which I don't use often. But I did weigh the presence of these features in my decision to buy this lens.

I wanted the Panasonic Lumix G2 to be my all around camera for travel, family photographs, scenics, etc. I found the kit lens (14-42) to be limited, so I decided to take a chance on the 14-140. I have taken about 300 pictures with it so far and have found it to be a terrific lens. It is very solidly built and doesn't slip, as some zooms do, when aimed down at a subject. The manual focus feature is good, especially if you have your camera on a tripod. At the telephoto focal lengths manual focusing can be a bit dauting, but it works (it automatically enlarges a portion of the image for you to focus on, then returns to your picture as zoomed). Image Stabilization is built in the lens and seems very good. I am amazed at the lower shutter speeds I can use and still get a sharp image. I know this lens will provide me with a lot of picture taking fun for years to come. By the way, the Olympus 14-150 lens is less expensive but doesn't have Image Stabilization because that feature is built in to the Olympus camera bodies.

I had this lens for almost a month. It works really well with my Olympus E-P1. The image is very sharp between 18mm to 70mm and a bit soft from 70mm and up. I like the built in O.I.S on the lens, so I can turn off the IBIS on the camera to avoid excessive heat when using it continuously. This is an amazing all around travel lens when pair with my Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens, which I can use it indoor such as restaurant with limit light condition and 14-140mm outdoor for landscape, wildlife animal or any occasion. I bought it separate with my camera system due to I like the retro look of E-P1. Consider its price is a bit high, but if you like to shot with video, then this lens is definite worth it Due to its virtually silence video focusing ability. I hate to hear my 20mm lens roaring when recording video using C-AF. I also planning test it out in my friend's coming wedding event and pair it with Olympus FL-50 flash. The lens is high quality made, inside of lens is made by metal with plastic casing I think due to manufacture consider its portability of m3/4 system. Consider its wide to telephoto range & price, there isn't much lens performs better than this lens unless you are willing to pay $500 more for the Leca 14-150mm without silent focusing ability.

This lens is an excellent way to get SLR image quality in a smaller package. I picked up this lens (and the GF1) to see if it could replace my current/previous walkaround kit of Nikon D90 with Nikkor 18-200. It is every bit the equal in image quality up to ISO 400 when shooting RAW. On the handling front its focus speed is equal or faster on easy subjects, but it does tend to get confused more easily and go into hunting mode with more difficult situations (though this is probably the camera body moreso than the lens).

Overall, my only and main disappointment with the arrangement is that it's not as portable as I'd hoped: In person, the size is surprisingly close to the D90+18-200, and, more importantly, the total weight is also very similar. I'll be keeping this setup since it is an improvement in portability, but I probably wouldn't purchase it again at this price point.
