Panasonic 7-14mm Lumix Lens equals Leica quality!, January 14, 2010

By Fuzzy picture "John" (Vette city, USA) - See all my reviews

This Panasonic Lumix lens is the 3rd lens I have bought from ebay and completes my system for G series of Panasonic cameras and lenses. Even though this lens is a little pricey, it is remarkable as to how sharp it is at all f stops and in the zoom ranges. For it's price, it is a bargain in it's range for wide angle zooms and is almost a must for indoor photography. Now I'm looking forward to using it for nature photography using it's range and unique perspective. It along with all the Lumix Lenses are highly recommended!
