Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-200mm F4-5.6 OIS
I could not deal with the slow aperture, so I sold it and bought the 35-100mm f/2.8.
Panasonic Lumix G 14mm F2.5 ASPH
Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm F2.8 OIS
Panasonic Lumix G 42.5mm F1.7 ASPH Power OIS
Very small lens. I found the focusing ring to be too small for video work.
Sharp lens, but suffered from "jitter" when shooting hand-held video. Firmware updates did not fix the problem.
Very small lens. I would have kept it if I owned the GX85 camera at the same time.
Other gear:
  • Nikon 55mm f/2.8 AI-S Micro MF Lens Went through 4 copies trying to find one that was mechanically smooth. All 4 copies would shift side-to-side when focused.
  • Panasonic AG-DVX100B 3-CCD 24p/30p/60i Mini-DV Cinema Camcorder The best Mini-DV camcorder ever made, but I would NEVER want to go back to shooting on tape.
  • Panasonic AG-HMC150 AVCCAM Solid-State Camcorder Fantastic first professional camcorder to shoot on SDXC memory cards. Great 720p image.
  • ZEISS Planar T* 50mm F/1.4 ZF.2 Lens Sharp lens but wide open it suffered badly from chromatic aberration.
  • ZEISS Planar T* 85mm f/1.4 ZF.2 Lens Sharp lens but wide open it suffered from chromatic aberration like the 50mm f/1.4 lens.
