Reviews of the Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 14-140mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH from around the web. »

This new 10x zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds system cameras, is an update to the existing lens, which is essentially the same specification, except that this lens has a marginally faster aperture throughout the zoom range. This lens provides an angle of view equivalent to a 28-280mm lens on a 35mm camera. Panasonic's Power Optical Image stabilisation system is included, which is another upgrade over the other 14-140mm lens. This newer lens costs around £600, which is about £140 more than the older lens. In this review, we'll take a look at whether this lens is worth the extra money.

The Panasonic 14-140mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 ASPH POWER OIS LUMIX G VARIO is an update to Panasonic's previous compact long-zoom Micro Four Thirds lens, the 14-140mm ƒ/4.0-5.8 ASPH MEGA O.I.S. LUMIX G VARIO HD. This new lightweight compact zoom lens provides a 35mm equivalent field of view of 28-280mm, making it a very versatile single-lens option for Panasonic, as well as Olympus users. This lens is squarely aimed at users looking for a lightweight, compact do-it-all lens for general walk-around use and who don't want to carry lots of additional lenses. The built-in optical image stabilization system makes up for not-so-fast apertures, and helps with low-light situations as well as with video.
