MicroFourThirds interchangeable lens
A telephoto zoom interchangeable lens designed specifically for the cameras compatible with Micro Four Thirds System standard. Covering from 90 to 400 mm (35 mm equivalent), this telephoto zoom lens lets you capture crisp, blur-free shots when shooting sports events and other distant subjects. The lens achieves minimum aberration at all focal length, high-contrast representation and high color reproduction by implementing 3 ED lens elements.
The lens incorporates Panasonic’s MEGA O.I.S. optical image stabilizer, which makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even in low-lit situations by suppressing the blur caused by a hand shake.
When the lens is mounted on the Lumix G Micro System DMC-G1 camera, you can use the contrast AF system, which is implemented in the DMC-G1 to offer a wide variety of convenient functions.
With its minimum focus distance of 1 m even at full zoom, the lens provides a maximum photographic magnification of 0.38x (35mm equivalent).
Seven aperture blades give the aperture a rounded shape that, when shooting at larger aperture, produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas.

I mention the SLR because because for those thinking of getting smaller gear instead of full size it might be relevant.
Firstly, this is quite a big lens compared to other micro 3/4rds lenses - much bigger and heavier than the kit zooms. With a reach equivalent to a 400mm in 35mm terms, this is to be expected. However, it is very well made and considering the reach the reach the actual size is not too bad.
The image quality is very good - I've read some reviews that say it lacks contrast but I don't think this is the case. So far then, on both the Pen and the G2 it scores really well.
So why 4 and not 5 stars? The OIS image stabilisation works, but not as well as the 70-300mm zoom on my Canon. At 200mm (400mm equiv. on a full frame) it's quite hard to keep it steady without high shutter speeds, which requires good light or high ISO.
Having said that it's the only game in town as far as long zooms go for micro 4/3rds; I'm glad we have a good one from Panasonic!
Great zoom (although Id still like a little more), nice, light and compact. Good optical stability on maximum zoom although in poorer light the definition is lost somewhat (though this is not necessarily a fault of the lens, it is bound to happen, just a bit of a shame).
All in all, a great lens, and a real must for anyone wanting to make the most of their G1 for anything other family snaps.
It appears to be fully compatible with the Olympus, having first remembered to disable the lens antishake device ( not required with the E-P1)
I have been very pleasantly surprised with the consistency and quality of the results, many taken at full apperture and maximum focal length.
The lens certainly meets the range of my requirements and, in my opinion, is probably the best buy!
It also appears to confirm that the entire range of Panasonic micro four thirds lenses can be used with the Olympus cameras!
Absolutely no regrets. Image quality is simply superb from the G1/GF1. The standard 14-42 lens does a good job but needed something with more reach to replace the Canon 70-300 IS USM. Budget was tight so the options were small, in fact it took mere seconds to realise that the Panasonic 45-200 was the only sensible option. And was fortunate to pick up one for £199 and still get the £50 money back deal.
Have to be honest, i was only expecting cheapo 70-300 quality, something along the lines of the Canon 70-300 MkIII or Sigma 70-300 DG. Cheap lenses with mediocre image quality, poor zoom action and bargain basement build.
But was very pleased with what arrived. Nicely boxed, complete with hood and pouch. Nice manual. A good start.
Once on the camera it felt right at home with the G1. Complete outfit still feels light and manageable. Zoom action is superb, really smooth with no stiction. Build is also very good with tight tolerances.
Autofocus is fast and reliable. While the Mega IOS works like a charm, allowing some silly low shutter speeds in lower light. Have no scientific figures to say whether its as good as the Canon system but the lowest shutter speeds seems comparable to what i managed with the Canon 55-250 IS and 70-300 IS lenses.
I have no complaints with image quality.Read more ›
