Hi! I want to have a compact zoom for travel and casual photo strolls, and currently I own the M.Zuiko ED 14-42. But I've to say I'm not happy with the results I get from it: if stopped below f8, the image quality is really poor. I was considering to exchange it by the Lumix GX 14-42, but the reviews I can read are inconsistent: A sharp lens for ones or a mediocre one for others, no much different from the M.Zuiko equivalent. Any direct experience using both lenses to say if actually the...

Hi, I am not  very into video but every now and then. So I was surprised to discover my x vario won't record sound. Neither plays back on the camera or computer. Did I miss something? I have gone through settings and there aren't that many. Camera sounds work fine.

I just bought the Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO Professional Lens, 35-100mm, F2.8 II ASPH zoom (p/n H-HSA35100) with a Panasonic DMC-G9 body. Panasonic states on their website that it "boasts a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio." Well, mine is not silent. If I record a quiet scene with Continuous AF turned on, I record a pretty obvious rapid clicking sound every time the lens changes focus. (I.S. is on, if that matters. And I'm recording through the internal microphone,...

I bought a used dmc gf6 and was wondering if the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens would be a good choice for now to replace the kit lens until I replace the body in the future?

I recently acquired a used Lumix G X Vario 45-175mm F/4.0-5.6 Power OIS Zoom Lens‎ for my Panasonic G85 (body firmware ver 1.2). After fitting the lens to the camera, the lens version indicated was ver 1.2. Wanting to take advantage of the Dual I.S update, I downloaded the ver 1.3 update from Panasonic. Working on a Mac (Sierra 10.12.6), a 458,816 byte, self-extracted file named ES101313.lin was obtained. Following Panasonic online instructions, I compared the downloaded file size (458,816...

Panasonic released a new version of the lens this year: http://shop.panasonic.com/cameras-and-camcorders/lumix-camera-lenses/H-HSA12035.html I am wondering how it differs from the old version (2012): http://shop.panasonic.com/cameras-and-camcorders/lumix-camera-lenses/H-HS12035.html It's a $300 price difference. My understanding is that it has a new version of Dual I.S. - 2.0 but is this something that can be upgraded with firmware? Is it worth it?

Im on a budget and want a really good lens for video as it's primary concern. The wife wants its to be a zoom lens and I would prefer a constant aperture. Otherwise I'd get Prime lens.  Options: 1) Lumix g x vario 12-35mm f/2.8 ii asph... and later purchase lumix g x vario 35-100mm f/2.8 ii asph. I feel this would allow for great light control throughout any shooting range with the trade off of a lens change at 35mm. 2) Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm F2.8-4.... and later buy the new 45-200...

For x Vario, but don't want to spend $100. Any recommendations for third party batteries? Thank you! --Adam Kielcz

I have searched the web an this forum (OK, not so much) but I have yet to find any comments or comparisons of these four lenses. What do version II of the Panny 12-35 and 35-100 add to an otherwise stellar pair of lenses? Thanks in advance. Michael

Just noticed the name of the 12-35mm lens is Lumix G X Vario and since Leica has a modal called Leica X Vario with also a zoom lens, given the partnership between Panasonic and Leica, I'm wondering if Vario is a common word used to describe zoom lens, or is there something else? --Blog: huiimy.ninjaFlickr: flickr.com/photos/huiimyInstagram: instagram.com/huiimy
