  • Poor quality

Best Uses

    Comments about Panasonic Lumix G VARIO 14-42mm Lens:

    Purchased this product mostly for shooting video. If used for stills I would say that it would be fine, however for shooting video this lens is terrible. It hunts for focus constantly going in and out of focus. The only way to use this lens is in manual mode where your subject never moves. This lens is a disappointment and completely unacceptable for a kit lens. That being said, I do have Panasonic lenses that I think are excellent this however is not one.
