Panasonic 45-150mm arrived today
Nov 7, 2012

The Panasonic 45-150mm arrived today.  I haven't had time to play with it much, though I fired off a few quick snaps just to confirm it was in working order.

So far: it seems decently sharp at the long end, sharper than the 45-200 is at 200.  I'll put in a couple of shots I just took (handheld and not particularly carefully at that).

Cans, handheld at 150mm.  Shiny surfaces to test the AF of my aging GF1.

Tree and fence, handheld at 150mm.  Focus is actually on the green pressure-treated upright centre-left.

First impressions: autofocus is quite fast, much faster than the 45-200mm was.  The AF is also silent, or at least quieter than I noticed - should be fine for video.  And this sucker is *small* -- when at the 45mm position, it's about the same length and just slightly thicker than the Panasonic 14-42 kit zoom.

I'm impressed so far.  I look forward to giving it a real workout.
