Coming from those kit lenses, the first thing I noticed is how tack sharp the photos are. The G5's JPG output is average at best but with the clarity improvements, there are some shots I'm comfortable not process RAW in Lightroom. The added depth of field is great for light portraiture but you have to be more aware of focus. You have a much better chance at capturing photos without a flash in low-light situations. Higher ISO shots (1600+) even look better.
The G5's video isn't stellar but the 25mm does improve output. The lack of built-in stabilizer makes for shakier hand-held video than with the other lenses though.
In short, this lens has breathed new life into my G5. The samples attached to this review include two flash and two available light shots.
Just outfitted my (new) Panasonic GX7 with this telephoto. It zooms me in close for action, wildlife, and outside shots. Lens action is smooth and quick. Amazing how far digital photography has progressed compared to the old 35mm film days...
Love the lens. It comes complete with a small bag, anti-static wrap, and two caps (one for each end). I just picked up a(nother) UV filter to protect the raw lens while we are out and about.
I was very pleased with the pictures that I took with this lens, and even got some pretty positive reviews from friends, including a real photographer :)
Had very little problem with movement blur, even with the lens fully zoomed (f/5.6 max), polarizer filter, and 100 ISO settings, so I presume the optical image stabilization worked. Focusing was fast, accurate and quiet.
Once I grab the 20mm (40mm equiv) f/1.7 prime lens I'll be a contented camper... well until I win a lottery to get the Leica-designed 45mm prime...
I currently have a Canon Rebel T3i, with some "L" lenses, and I knew I was stepping down, but had read about the 4/3 systems and was interested in a smaller camera for those times when the Canon was just plain too big and too heavy. Frankly, so far I don't miss all those extra pixels!
I mainly take photos of nature and my dogs and consider myself pretty much an amateur hobbist when it comes to photography.
This lens appears to be well made, it feels good in my hands, and everything works smoothly and quietly. I do miss the light gathering capacity of the Canon, but I knew this wouldn't do the same when I bought it so I wasn't disappointed.
So far, photos are crisp and tack sharp at ALL lengths, I see no drop off with the longer lengths and the colors are GREAT!
If you are stepping up from a point and shoot, or, like me, looking for something easier to lug around this lens IS a keeper!
New updates (16th Feb). Great lens for the price. Good outdoors, managed to get some nice creepy crawlers frozen in time. But very tough to autofocus. Had to use manual focus about 95% of the time, which i actually prefer. Autofocus works well at 45mm, but at 200mm, it will autofocus, but not at the object u would like to, especially difficult when u are trying to capture a spider on its web. Fun lens that will make u go back to the basics - manual handling.
