Re: Question about Panasonic 14-140mm versions

The problem is not with the lens, but with the design of the mechanical shutter inn those cameras. The shutter produces a lot of vibration, and that can be heard in the amount of noise that it makes when activated. That vibration gets transferred to the 14-140mm.

I know the shutter is causing the problem but the issue is made worse by the IS system in the 14-140 and a couple of others (12-35 and 35-100 F2.8s )  , moreso than other IS lenses like the 45-200, 45-150 and not at all in some like the 14-42-II and its rarely an issue with non stabilized lenses and the GX8 (moreso with the GX1)
