Pros:High sharpness up to about 300mm, build quality and compactness in relation to the focal range.
Cons:The size, not in absolute but in relation to the size of the m4/3 cameras! But you know when you buy it....
Opinion:Although not making great use of focals so long I wanted to complete my kit with a quality super canvas and I have to say that this lens does not disappoint, indeed! Even at 400mm the yield is very good, for the top, in my opinion it is better to stop at 300mm though. Very pleasant blurry, which is not taken for granted in such an extreme zoom. The build quality is excellent and the weight, despite being felt, is contained, especially in relation to the covered focal points. I use it on a G9 and it's very manageable. Very efficient stabilizer.
Opinion:I have owned it for almost a year and a half now and I feel like doing a verified review . The optical quality is great, great sharpness, loses something at 400 but recoverable by closing the diaphragm by a stop. I use it on Olympus OM D E M1 II and behaves very well , also excellent focus also to chase and stabilization. It returns fabulous bluy, very creamy and suggestive, and even the construction is great, the only thing is the a little hard zooming but it doesn't seem like a big deal. All this with an avifauna aviauna atlife that reaches one and a half kilo with a focal point of 800 mm. And that allows me to carry it quietly around my neck using it freehand. To conclude, very satisfied, a great lens with many merits and very few defects, overconsilted.
Pros:Very high quality of construction and image, tropicalization. The size and weight are contained for an optics that is equivalent to 200-800 for FF. Perfect for wildlife and wildlife photos. Great freehand use, Thanks tothe compactness and double image stabilizer, unthinkable for focal andquivalent in FF format.
Cons:Perfection does not exist.
Opinion:I've had this lens for almost 2 years, and I'm just excited about it. I use it with a Lumix GH-5 body and it gave me great satisfaction in photo hunting and birdwatching. The weight and the small size allow you to walk long distances in the mountains (even in winter with snow) without excessive effort. Thanks to the double body-optical stabilizer, you are not obliged to use tripods, which also facilitates the pursuit of moving subjects. The focal excursion allows you to cope with almost any situation. It is true that a brighter diaphragm would have been convenient, but at the expense of greater weight, footprint and price.
Pros:800 mm equivalent to a fair price, excellent perceived build quality, excellent image quality; minimum focus distance that also allows close up
Cons:A little dark... 6.3, autofocus every now and then struggles to hook at 400mm
Opinion:I bought this 800mm equivalent zoom for my OM DE 10II, enticed precisely by the focal and affordable price. The first thing that has come to my eye is the quality of the materials, robust although light and compact. It has a very good image quality for what are the pretensions, as on the other hand all the other m43 goals (Olympus). If it had been brighter it would have been the top but I know it would not be logical to expect it at these prices. It allows me to take naturalistic freehand photos like I shot with the 70-200 Canon. Also excellent the minimum distance of focus that if I remember badly is just over the meter: it gives the possibility to do not say macro, but good close up. I'd buy it back and recommend it.
Pros:compactness in relation to useful focal points, balancing, overall quality
Cons:modular lampshade and zummata block selector not instinctively fast; fine focus to learn with experience
Opinion:Having a similar range of focal points, plus Leica's brand and quality is already something special; the general yield is splendid, all the more so for what it costs. Having also the Olympus 40-150 PRO 2.8 I can say that, with equal size and weight, I prefer the Panaleica for greater versatility, also because the different brightness is balanced by the anti-vibration system, also double, of the body machine G9 and goal
