The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 Power O.I.S. Lens (Silver) is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens compatible with cameras featuring the Micro Four Thirds lens mount. Its 14-140mm focal length is equivalent to 28-280mm in 35mm format and provides a 75-8.8deg. angle of view. 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 lens contains three aspherical elements to eliminate coma and other types of lens aberration and two ED glass elements to enhance sharpness and color correction by minimizing chromatic aberration. Multi-coated lens elements minimize ghosting and flare. The Internal Focusing system lets you focus without altering the size of the lens, enabling a closer minimum focusing distance of 0.98' at the widest focal lengths (14-21mm) and 1.64' at 22-140mm.

Additionally, the lens utilizes a stepping motor to enable smooth, silent focusing during both photo and video capture. The circular aperture diaphragm features seven blades that create visually pleasing bokeh in the out-of-focus regions of the image. When used with certain compatible cameras, including the DMC-GH3/G6, the lens supports high-speed shooting at up to 240 fps to take advantage of contrast AF.

The 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 is compact and lightweight, with a 67mm diameter and an overall length of 2.95", but features a durable metal mount. It accepts 58mm filters. Supplied with the lens are front and rear caps, a lens hood for blocking out unwanted light and a convenient storage bag.

Great performer

This lens is sharp. Period. Specially on the sweet spot, somewhere between 5.6 and 8, more than enough for me. For me the whole idea of smaller sensor systems is to be light and mobile so a lens this small with that reach is great. I don't see myself buying 2.8 zooms but to each his own. Outside the sweet spot this lens is not that great. I won't miss a shot if I need to go down to 3.5 or 4 but if I can I'll leave at 5.6.

Thinking this lens as a series of primes combined in one lens gives it great versatility even lacking the greater aperture primes have but depending on what shooting you're doing you won't miss it... But as some other reviewer mentioned, the 20mm 1.7 is always at arms length so I can tell I'm a happy camper! Recommended!

Excellent do-it-all lens!

By

from Northern California

I purchased this lens to replace my 14-45 and 45-150 because I didn't appreciate having to swap out all the time, and I'm very happy with the decision. The 10x zoom range is extremely versatile, and the balance when mounted on my Lumix G6 body is great. Images are sharp even wide open, and stopping down a bit makes them even better. I've also taken some unexpectedly crisp hand-held bird shots all the way out at 140mm. I also like that you can switch off the image stabilization, and that it's made in Japan. This will be the only lens I take on my European trip this summer. Great job Panasonic!

Small but NOT Silent Lens

By

from Virginia

The LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. description says "Smooth, silent operation for both photo and video recording". My lens emits a constant whirring sound that is only silenced when the camera is turned off. Silent should mean silent. I would like a silent lens.

Updated Workhorse

By

from Florida

I'll bet you are reading this to ask is it worth upgrading from the older sibling? Well yes, with caveats. Even though I've had this barely two weeks, I shot 3000 photos and dozens of hours of video on vacation in a national park. Here's what I found: First, you get incrementally better quality and incrementally better low light (at wider settings), but this is certainly no home run. However, considering it goes from 28-280mm in a single lens, we have to be realistic the laws of physics can only be pushed so far. Sharpness is really no better than the older version, although the longer end of the zoom range, sharpness is notibly better than the older version. What you do get is significantly smaller form factor, very noticable weight loss, so much so even the GH3 is practical to carry all day using a Bino-buddy binoculars strap. The camera balances far better vs old version of this lens too. You also get a lens that will not extend itself as you move, something on the old lens was resolved with a fat rubber band. So for a general walkabout lens that is good performer in most situations this lens and the 7-14mm cousin are a great pair. Finally, if you are concerned about the negative remarks, think about what your output will be. If you are only sharing on the internet, HDTV, photoframe, and computer, this lens should be a good option, but if you want to print 11x14's or larger on a regular basis, you would be better served by buying one or more of the of f2/8 lenses as they are far sharper than this lens. However, large prints are practical if you need them, just don't expect miracles. This lens is a jack of all trades, master of none, but I find utility in such a well-rounded lens. My vacation travel kit is minimized. A camera you WANT to carry all day has a quality all it's own. Verdict: Keeper.

very good lens

By

from sunnyvale, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I use it with GH2 body as one-size-fits-all traveling lens and it serves its purpose: lightweight, reasonably fast, versatile. I compared it with two other lenses: 12-35/f2.8 and 100-300/f4-5.6. As expected, AF it is a bit slower and picture is a bit fuzzier than for the first one (for both 14 and 35 mm zoom) but quality is the same as for the second one for zoom= 140mm. Besides, as with any other lenses, it is practically impossible to use it for video due to noticeable AF hunt.

Versatile, Compact 14-140mm Zoom

By

from San Antonio, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

The lens is a bit heavy but makes it feel solid too. Manual zoom so no noise. I've gotten very sharp photos. Color seems accurate too.

Very Good for What It's Meant To Do

By

from Palatine, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

This lens is a superzoom with a focal length comparable to 28-280mm on a full size sensor. As such there is a tradeoff; weight and larger minimal aperatures vs convenience. The 14-140 is designed to be used on cameras capable of functioning very well at ISOs from 1600-6400 depending on the model its mounted on. This along with image stabilization makes it useful in many settings. It's great as an everyday lens. Teamed with a fast prime it is marvelous for travel. Indoors it works very well by itself at the higher ISOs and even better with flash. Video, you don't hear the motor when it focuses but the large aperature gets in the way unless you have extra lighting. That's where the fast prime would come in. That prime is also useful where no flash is allowed. From my understanding pros who are into mirrorless use this lens for their videos but they use extra lighting as well. Weight? It weighs about one pound. A superzoom of this range and construction from a major manufacturer on an APC or full sensor camera will weigh anywhere from 2.5 to almost 4 pounds. The images it helps to produce? On an electrical device (computer, smartphone, tablet) almost flawless. Printed, some grain at 16x20. If you're looking for pro quality, constant aperature speed and ease be prepared to spend $2500 for two lenses that together don't cover the focal length that this one does. If you're not ready to do that then really think about this one.

Comparable to other long zooms

By

from Arroyo Grande, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this used from Adorama. Their ratings are conservative as I would have rated this as like new. Although I bought a Panasonic micro 4/3 dSLR to use with older lenses and adapters (Leica, Minolta et al) I kind of like the camera size and the image quality, at least in RAW, is quite good at reasonable ISOs for my personal uses. For travel I have used long zooms from Nikon, Canon and Sigma and they all trade optical qualities for convenience with performance on a par with this Panasonic lens. Be aware that like most long zooms the Panasonic rapidly devolves to f5.6 though much of its range. I use software to correct raw images for distortion, in this case DxO,a practice I strongly recommend for most consumer grade lenses. So if you want a long zoom for a Pansonic micro 4/3 dSLR this is a reasonable performer for a lens in its class. My main complaint is that close focus is more limited than I would like.

not good for video

By

from rochester ny  -  Pro Photographer

is meant for photo not video, (i use it on panasonic af100) so it is kind of dark, and jerky to zoom, and the fact that has to extend is a bummer, sad part is supossed the best for my camera. hope panasonic makes some lenses meant for it.

RICHARD S  I'm interested in this lens, will it fit my Panasonic GX1?
DAN L  It should fit any micro four-thirds mount camera. Beautiful lens, by the way, and far sharper than either of the kit lenses that came with my G5.
