Opinions on 14-140mm requested,....both models
Apr 30, 2014

Hi folks,

I'd like your opinion on the Panasonic 14-140mm, either model. I was just about ready to order the F3.5 model when I read a professional review that has me rethinking the purchase.

The reviewer basically said that both lenses were only okay and the f3.5 is not worth the $200 premium, unless weight was super important. He then went on to say that the 14-42 11 kit lens was considerably sharper than either 14-140mm. Looking at his sample photos, I could see no difference in the IQ at all.

My experience is that newer models of the same lens nearly always show improvement and that's basically why I'm leaning toward the 14-140mm F3.5. The lighter weight is not especially important.

I never learn much from professional reviews, but I really value the opinions of actual users. Thanks!
