Re: Question about Panasonic 14-140mm versions

The first version has red HD under the 14-140 mark on the side of the lens.

The second version doesn't have this but instead has the 0.3m/ft to infinity markings under 14-140 on the side of the lens. In small white letters HD is indicated under the model number H-FS14140.

These two are the same lens, they just dumbed down the cosmetics on the later version

The third most recent has model number H-FSA14140 and the small white HD is next to the four thirds symbol. This is hopefully the weather sealed version.

Yep, it also is DUAL-IS-2 compliant instead of just Dual IS 1 but from accounts on here, there`s barely , if any difference , they still didn`t fix the shutter shock issues either with the older bodies such as the GX8, G7 , GX7 etc either

Do people know which is sharpest or best?

Optically they`re all the same , any differences will be down to sample variation
