5.0 out of 5 stars I Never Give 5 Stars . . .
By steve on July 28, 2016
I've been a stock photographer for nearly nine years and recently switched from a full frame DSLR to the 4/3 format. Weight reduction was the driving force behind that decision but after using my OMD em 5II camera for over a year, the most positive change (improvement) is the ability to see the effect of your exposure, before pushing the shutter. Every shot can now be perfectly exposed no matter how difficult the lighting situation.

My decision to buy the Panasonic 100-400mm Zoom Lens over the other purchase options has also exceeded my expectations. The zoom range is the most apparent improvement but it's not what make this lens such a great choice. Unlike most zoom lenses which are less than tack sharp at the extremes of their zoom range, this lens is super sharp all the way out to 400mm (800mm equivalent). It doesn't matter if you're using it to photograph an up close dragonfly or a distant bird your photograph will be sharp (assuming you've made the correct exposure decisions).

The image stabilization is excellent as is the focusing which is extremely fast and accurate. I've even been able to do hand held focus stacking (thanks to Olympus Technology), with very good results (see attached dragonfly photo). As stated by other reviewers, the zoom is rather stiff but not unlike other professional lenses and is very acceptable in my opinion. Due to the limitations of the current focusing technology in 4/3 format this lens will not keep up with fast action like flying birds but then this is no surprise as I've had like results using my other lenses.

While I have never given a five star rating before, I highly recommend this lens to anyone who wants "near perfection" in an extreme zoom lens. Without a doubt this lens has exceeded my expectations and is worth 5 stars and it's rather exorbitant price tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars REALLY glad I took a chance on this lens.
By Linda L. on May 22, 2016
I was concerned with this purchase as the early indications from photog review sites showed the lens was not sharp. Panasonic & Leica seemed to recognize this and held up release of the lens to make appropriate adjustments. Knowing this & seeing a late "and very positive" review after it was finally released I took a chance and ordered it once it became available.

Thank goodness I did that because this is a wonderful addition to our lens collection! Its a beautiful lens and works flawlessly but all that wont matter for me if its not sharp. Trust me this lens is VERY sharp and the colors are gorgeous!

The thing I see about this lens is it needs to be worked to its strengths. Its obviously not the fastest lens in the world especially at the long end so you need to have good light in order to get the best results out of it. If I have poor, dim, overcast condition light I'm going to use my Olympus 40-150mm F2.8 Pro or 300mm F4.0 Pro lenses because they are a lot faster "although without the range on one or the zoom on the other". If I have good light this is the lens I will have mounted because its so versatile with that huge zoom range and is fully capable of producing stunning results!

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact and Capable but a Bit Pricey
By Jon Culver on August 29, 2016
After getting the Pana Leica 100-400 I had the opportunity to try it out on the seals and birds at Point Lobos resereve near Monterrey, CA and then on the beach birds near Pensacola, FL. and dragon flies on a hike near Prescott, AZ. I was very pleased with the results, better than I expected, very sharp especially at 400-500 mm equivalent and even at 600-800 mm equivalent the results were still very good. I also found the lens exceedingly useful for shooting sharp pictures of insects up to one half life size at 4.3 feet away allowing me to get many many more dragon fly and bee shots than I ever could have with a much shorter macro or medium tele focal length. I was also pleased that the Pana Leica matched quite well with my Olympus EM-1 although it was a bit irritating to have to remember to turn off the in body stabilization on the EM-1. Overall the Pana Leica lens stabilization worked quite well--I found that shooting sharp shots as slow as 100th of a second was possible if the subject remained still. However, I found it best to shoot birds at least 1000 even better at 2000 of a second and even faster to insure that I froze the action to cover sudden movements like hops, sudden turns and flapping of wings while shooting at 9 frames a second. But to shoot at those speeds I needed to ramp up the ISO speed more than I liked to (up to 3200) creating more digital noise unless it was a very bright day. This lens is very well suited for bright light conditions but struggles in early morning and lower light settings if capturing fast action is the need of the moment. I really like this lens it is extremely compact and light weight, quality is excellent to quite good across the entire zoom range but the reasons I did not give it a 5 rating are as follows:

*the zoom mechanism from 100-400 and back is stiff making focal length changes while shooting a moving subject an awkward task!
*vignetting or lens shading in the corners is very noticeable at 200-350 mm equiv. shooting at white sand beaches.
*Success rate nailing focus on flying birds using Continuous Auto Focus is very low with the EM-1, hopefully more practice shooting birds in flight and the future purchase of the new EM-1 MkII will give the needed fix so I can get higher percentage of in focus hits.
*Finally, $1799 pluse $150 California sales tax is too much for this lens--E-Bays current price of $1599 is about right.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm impressed
Reviewed in Canada on November 17, 2016
This lens is amazing. Lightweight and compact for a 100-400 mm with a very practical design IMO. Outstanding image quality in terms of clarity/contrast/sharpness with,quiet but snappy focus (only hunts for focus in low light). Chromatic aberration is fairly well controlled for a super telephoto only becoming noticeable in extreme situations like shooting a blackbird against a bright sky. I found no issues with and really like the zoom lock feature and the easy to remove tripod foot. as well as the innovative way I can go from horizontal to vertical frame when attached to a monopod or a tripod. It's not an inexpensive lens but it does offer excellent quality and functionality! I'm quite pleased and think the investment is worth it!
