Tony, Jedburgh amateur photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sturdily made, easy to use, not too heavy, O.I.S. system works well. The zoom is smooth. This lens is an excellent addition to the Lumix G camera range and is versatile enough to use for wildlife photography in the field even without a tripod or monopod.

Manufacturer's Description

Telephoto Zoom Lens of Micro Four Thirds System Standard

The LUMIX G VARIO 100-300mm / F4.0-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S. offers a long zoom range of 100-300mm (35mm camera equivalent: 200-600mm) while achieving minimum distortion and chromatic aberration by implementing advanced lens system including an ED (Extra Low Dispersion) lens.
The LUMIX G VARIO 100-300mm / F4.0-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S. incorporates Panasonic’s MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), which makes it easy to shoot super clear shots even in telephoto shooting or in low-lit situations without using a tripod by suppressing the blur caused by a hand shake.
When mounted on LUMIX G Micro System cameras, the LUMIX G VARIO 100-300mm / F4.0-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S. allows use of the advanced contrast AF system, which includes a Face Recognition function, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting.
The LUMIX G VARIO 100-300mm / F4.0-5.6 / MEGA O.I.S. complies with the Micro Four Thirds System, an interchangeable lens camera system that was designed and developed to optimize the characteristics of digital technology. Despite its extremely compact size and superb optical performance, this lens brings out the full capabilities of the 4/3-type image sensor, achieves smoother Live View in superb combination with camera’s body and allows a variety of unique features such as the contrast AF function of LUMIX G Micro System cameras.
7 aperture blades consists a circular aperture diaphragm and produces an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas even shooting at large aperture settings. This lens system uses multi-coated lens elements that reduce ghosts and flare to an absolute minimum, helping deliver a high optical performance.
