About this deal

The extremely small size makes this lens an ideal travel companion, and it fits in very well with lenses such as the Olympus 9-18mm and the Panasonic pancake zoom 12-32mm. As appropriate, we shoot these with both full-frame and sub-frame bodies, at a range of focal lengths, and at both maximum aperture and ƒ/8. It is useful in shooting snapshots, including portraits and close-ups, with an impressively defocused background to take advantage of the high portability of this lens. This new lens, which gives the same field of view as the classic 70-200mm telephoto zooms on 35mm cameras, is exceptionally small, making it an ideal choice for inclusion in super-lightweight travel kits.

One thing we teach our students at Thinkster is that there are multiple ways to solve a math problem.At 35mm sharpness levels are already excellent across the frame at maximum aperture and remain this way until the lens is stopped down beyond f/8. although everybody tells me how wonderful the 14-140 is, I am sceptical about such wide-range zooms, particularly my experience of massive sample variation with such lenses in the (admittedly distant) past. I mean, we're talking about a 70-200mm equivalent zoom lens that's hardly any bigger than the small Olympus 45mm f/1.

At the 35mm end of the zoom range, the lens has a diagonal angle of view of 34°, equivalent to that of a 70mm lens in a 35mm system.The blue column represents readings from the centre of the picture frame at the various apertures and the green is from the edges.

even though it costs more and does not have quite the reach, but I didn’t know how the Olympus body would handle that OIS.

I put the 12-32 onto the GX7 and the 30-100 onto the GX8 or vice versa when I want to avoid lens changing.

It doesn't really impact on sharpness until ƒ/16 or ƒ/22, where we note generalized image softness across the frame. magnification rating, so it's no macro lens, although that's not too surprising for a telephoto zoom lens.When it comes to this class of lens, there aren't many other options to choose from in any of the Micro Four-Thirds camps: the Olympus 40-150mm isn't directly equivalent, but provides a similar shooting experience.

Now I know this is not a fast lens, but for normal daytime photography (or on a tripod) this lens shines.
