Favorite Micro Four Thirds Lens

As I grew into the m43 (micro four-​thirds) cam­era gear, like any pho­tog­ra­pher, I started get­ting many dif­fer­ent lenses. Most were based on reviews I had read and also based on my per­sonal needs and desires for focal lengths.

As my expe­ri­ence grew, I soon found I had col­lected five dif­fer­ent lenses. Most were made by Pana­sonic with excep­tion to one which was made by Olym­pus. Part of the rea­son I went with Pana­sonic is the built-​in O.I.S. (opti­cal image sta­bi­liza­tion) and two of the lenses are also water-​resistant which works great in rainy or wet con­di­tions with a sealed cam­era like the Pana­sonic GH3, GH4, and GH5.

Of my five lenses, I find one in par­tic­u­lar that I just love to shoot with unless I am doing land­scapes. The focal length I find to be very use­ful, great shal­low depth of field with nice bokeh, built-​in sta­bi­liza­tion., weather sealed to com­pli­ment my weather sealed cam­era and great image quality.

So what is this fan­tas­tic lens? It is the Pana­sonic LUMIX G X Vario Lens, 35-​100mm, F2.8 ASPH. When I pur­chased this lens, it was over the $1,000 range but now, you are able to find it well under that price new. I love using this lens for por­traits and any­thing where I need a lit­tle more reach. You can see exam­ples below.
