The Panasonic 100-300mm lens is the equivalent of a 200-600mm on a 35mm body! What’s the big deal here? Find out after the break
A 600mm 5.6 lens with image stabilization, a lot lighter then my Canon 24-70mm and just under 5 inches. Now we are talking! Mounted on the GH2 or E P3 auto focus is very fast, corners are a tad soft wide open but sharpen up nicely by 8. Image quality is superb and the price is great. Is is as good as the 100-400mm Canon? Of course not, but it costs about 1/3 and more importantly, it only weighs a 1/3. No need to visit the chiropractor after walking around with this set up for a couple of hours. Overall, very impressed with this lens, probably the most practical ultra long tele set up one can get – All shots where taken hand held with the GH2.
