No it's not. I think I'll just have to buy one and let you guy's know what it's like.I was interested in it as well, but you're right there are hardly any user reviews out there. Then the recent sale on the Oly 40-150 came along and I stopped waiting. Is it being sold as a 2-lens kit at all?
Too heavy for me!!Hey, I just spotted this: The Panny 45-200 for $99 at Best Buy:
Panasonic - 45-200mm f/4.0-5.6 Telephoto Zoom Lens for Panasonic Lumix G Digital Cameras - H-FS045200
45-150mm at 45mm, f/4.0, 1/60th, ISO 1600, no flash under tungsten with a G5. JPEG OOC, no noise reduction applied, minor sharpening for print. Been busy, so this is all I've got. Gotta say that I did not work for this at all... draw your own conclusions. Works for me.It's real hard to find anyone with this lens. Anyone got one and if so it is any good. The few snippets I have seen on the net suggest that it's pretty good. I don't have time at the moment to test the one at work (
Any input would be good.
Agreed. I really have this because it came as a part of a G5 kit for an additional $69.00.I'll probably go with the 45-175 as the examples from that lens are pretty stunning and it's is a little longer in focal length plus just a little more money.
