Panasonic X 45-175 on E-P3
Mar 6, 2012

Is anyone using this combo, and if so, what is your experience with it?

I am looking for a zoom in this range to use on my E-P3. Compared to the Panasonic 45-200 and Olympus 40-150 alternatives, the X 45-175 seems to have the advantages of size, operation, decent build quality and best optical performance. The only negative which keeps getting mentioned is performance of the IS system, and this may have been improved with the latest firmware update. Regardless, it is my understanding that this is a non-issue when used with an Olympus body, since the lens IS is automatically disabled in favour of the IBIS. Am I correct on this and should I expect satisfactory operation from this combo?

Thanks for your feedback.
