Pros and cons

According to our camera lens expert
  • The 100-400mm zoom range allows you to capture animals and athletes from a large distance.
  • The optical image stabilization prevents blurry photos.
  • Special lens elements protect your gear against chromatic aberration.
  • The light intensity decreases while zooming in, so you can shoot handheld for a shorter period of time.
  • The lens weighs 985 grams, which makes it feel heavy in combination with a light camera body.

    Nature photographers will enjoy beautiful results with this

    Herwig Vereyken | 16 November 2016 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Excellent stabilization also in combination with IBIS from GX8
    • Very fast AF in sufficient light
    • The mighty 400mm! 800mm 35mm equivalent
    • price on the high side
    • less suitable for low-light shooting with the longest focal lengths due to the decrease in brightness

    This telephoto zoom is a great tool for bird and wildlife photographers. The image stabilization in the lens works excellently, so that in many cases you can also photograph without a tripod.
    Only when there is little light are there problems (especially at the longest focal lengths (300 to 400 mm); either you have to reach for the higher ISO values, which can give noise problems, or you have to work with fairly long exposures and hope that you get the best possible results. If you use the lens on a GX8 camera body you can take advantage of a combined stabilization Power OIS + IBIS
    An additional advantage for nature and wildlife photographers is the sealing of the lens against dust and splash water. That is really quite an improvement compared to the Lumix 100-300 mm zoom lens.
    Also worth mentioning is the exceptionally shortest distance for focusing: 1m30cm. At the 400mm position, this allows macro shots, as it were, of skittish butterflies and small animals without having to sneak up on them carefully so as not to chase them away.

    Light, small, sharp, fast, sealed, reliable

    B van Barneveld | 19 September 2019 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • In combination with Panasonic G9 dual IS, very good stabilization also at 400mm (800 eqv). Shooting handheld in low light is fine
    • Very compact and light for the range
    • Also at 400mm very sharp in the center of the lens.
    • Rain and dust resistant
    • Built-in (small/extra) hood
    • Zoom is heavier than with my other lenses, the ring also turns the opposite of what I was used to

    After 10,000 photos taken across the African continent, I see no difference with my LUMIX 50-200mm and/or Olympus 40-150mm PRO over the same zoom area, but it is much longer in terms of focus length. Very nice lens.
