The Panasonic Lumix G7 is a new Micro Four Thirds compact system camera that integrates 4K video recording capacity with a variety of 4K Photo functions. The G7 can record 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) video with either 30p or 24p frame rates at 100Mbps in the MP4 structure. The Panasonic G7 features a 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS image sensor, high-speed dual OLED Live Watch Finder, 3-inch 1040K-dot Free-Angle touch screen display, 8fps continuous shooting, ISO 100-25,600, ultra-high velocity AF of just 0.07 sec, mechanical and silent electronic shutters, and Wi-Fi connection.

The Lumix G7 is a competent mid-range camera that anyone seeking a step-up from budget models, whether DSLR camera or mirrorless camera, should consider. It has well-thought-out settings, a large and extensive optical viewfinder, and the usability of a completely articulated touch screen. It’s sensitive, concentrating rapidly, and firing-off bursts up to 8fps at maximum resolution, even in low light. It’s filled with built-in Wi-Fi, timelapse, quiet shooting up to 1/16000, and bracketing for up to seven frames. With 4k film, it’s revolutionary, enabling you to catch movies with four times the 1080p detail and the ability to capture 8 Megapixel images from 30fps footage. As a Micro Four Thirds sensor, it also has access to the widest array of native mirrorless lenses. It takes the baton of the previous G6 in all these ways and runs with it, making it one of the best mid-range cameras around and one that also pulls on the toes of higher-end models. Indeed, for many, the video capabilities are similar to those of the GH4 flagship, making it an excellent budget option for filmmakers or a B-roll backup body. That’s a lot of money for a camera.

12-60mm LUMIX G VARIO f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. In a very compact box, the regular POWER O.I.S. zoom delivers a flexible focal range of 24-120mm, backed up by very decent picture quality across the focal range and impressively smooth and quiet autofocusing. However, it’s a little soft, wide-open, so for better performance, it’s best used stopped off, but the selling price of £ 369 / $ 499 is quite fair. Considering the zoom range on display, this lens is compact and lightweight, making it well suited for life as a walk-around lens. Focusing on the DMC-GX7 camera we tested with and practically silent, it is also swift, making it well-suited for candid stills and video work. Given the price-tag, construction efficiency is more than appropriate.

The lens is an excellent performer in optical terms. It is best to stop it down by one f-stop at all focal lengths – wide-open center and edge sharpness are less appropriate for optimal performance. Chromatic aberrations are only evident by their almost total loss, while distortions are still not that bad. We would surely recommend the Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH if you like the flexibility of a regular zoom with a little more scope than usual. Lens POWER O.I.S.

  • Moisture and dust sealed metal body and mount, 1-Year Limited Warranty
  • Ultra ED (UED) chromatic aberration reduction glass
  • 4 Aspherical lens elements
  • POWER O.I.S with near silent drive optimized for video and still capture

For any Micro Four Thirds holders, not just Panasonic owners, the 12-35mm f/2.8 II is a reliable, high-quality, classic zoom lens. The styling has been revamped and modernized, and a few places have been updated that is worth upgrading, mostly adding Dual I.S. Dual and I.S. Compatibility with 2. Overall, the flexible 24-70mm-eq f/2.8 zoom from Panasonic remains thin, lightweight, and ruggedly designed while also providing outstanding image quality and excellent AF performance. Like Olympus’ 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro, at about $900, it is by no means a cheap lens, but it packs the features and value that professional photographers and videographers need. The Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 II is an outstanding choice if you need a single, sturdy lens suitable for landscapes, travel, street photographers, portraits, and more.

Considering the zoom range on display, this lens is compact and lightweight, making it well suited for life as a walk-around lens. It is also effortless to concentrate and quiet, making it well-suited to candid stills and video work, in particular, making it a great partner for the GH5 camera for which we tested it. The standard of construction is excellent, considering the premium price tag expected, and the icing on an already rich cake because this lens is weatherproof.

A great addition to the Panasonic lens line-up is the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH, particularly if you film a mix of stills and video, where the fully silent action and flexible 24-120mm focal range really comes to the fore.

4. Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS

The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH. Super O.I.S. is not a lens to be chomped at the bit to own, but it’s a great starter zoom for photographers joining the Micro Four Thirds system. It’s a solid value when bought along with a compact, so if you have a compatible camera already and are shopping for a new zoom, you may want to put more focus on scale. The G Vario is compact in its own right, but like the EZ variant of the Olympus M.Zuiko 14-42mm and the Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH collapsible power zooms. Collapse for storage immediately, and cover the same field of view. The lightweight Panasonic 12-32mm can also be looked at by wide-angle fans. It does not zoom as much as most, but it compensates for it with a larger field of view when zoomed out.

Panasonic Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens...
  • Micro Four Thirds Mount Lens 24-64mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/3.5-22 MEGA O.I.S. Image Stabilization
  • Compact Retractable Design Weighs 2.5 Ounces
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 7.9" 37mm Filter Thread Diameter

A tiny and extremely light regular zoom lens, the LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH is very much at home on the similarly compact DMC-GM1 camera. The build quality is remarkably good, the OIS system is powerful, and when stopped slightly from the maximum aperture, it offers excellent image quality across the focal range. The only downside for some will be the absence of a manual focus ring, leaving the consumer dependent on the autofocusing device, which is rather quick, quiet and consistently reliable, something that most users will definitely not mind doing, and the very sluggish maximum apertures typical of a kit zoom lens, restricting its use in lower light. However the LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH is still the perfect partner for the GM1 camera and, if you want a versatile zoom that you can carry everywhere a good investment in its own right.

If you do not already have a 50mm equivalent lens in your kit-bag, the Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH is a very decent standard lens at a very inexpensive price, making it a must-have buy.

The Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH is an outstanding performer in terms of optics. For full bokeh, you can comfortably use it wide open and still produce sharp results in the middle of the frame, or stop down to f/4 for optimal performance, where even the frame’s edges look sharp. Chromatic aberrations are almost entirely absent, barrel distortion on all Olympus and Panasonic bodies is automatically corrected, and very helpful is the nearest focusing distance of 0.25 m. An otherwise remarkably good result is ruined only by the obvious light fall-off in the corners at f/1.7.

With this lens, Panasonic has done really well. The only objectionable thing about it might be its price tag, which for what others may see as the micro four-thirds equivalent of the nifty fifty, strikes a little high. However the quick aperture and high efficiency warrant a higher price, and with the current lack of competition in its class, you’re only going to have to pay a premium price if you want what it can do. That said the investment is well worth it.

9. Panasonic Lumix G 42.5mm F1.7 ASPH Power OIS

Panasonic replacement lens LUMIX G 42.5mm F1.7...
  • Perfect for low light photography with a bright F1.7 aperture.
  • 31cm Closest Focusing Distance
  • Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) / 240fps Drive AF
  • Focal Length, f=42.5mm (35mm camera equivalent 85mm)

The Lumix G 42.5mm f1.7 from Panasonic is a small telephoto prime lens that goes up against the immensely famous Olympus 45mm f1.8. The Lumix was sharper at wide apertures in the corners in my experiments and could usefully focus far closer, enabling it to do double-duty as a simple macro lens; it also offers optical stabilisation for owners of unstabilized Panasonic bodies. However, though it outperformed the Olympus in all of my measurements, the Olympus offered a marginally superior out-of-focus field rendering and is usually sold at a higher discount. However, both are excellent and highly recommended choices.

  • 2 ultra-low-dispersion (UD) glass elements and rear focusing system
  • Ultra-sonic monitor (USM) for quick, highly accurate autofocusing
  • 4.9-foot close focusing distance; produces natural-looking background blur
  • Angle of View 39.6 degrees(Sony E-mount 50.7 degrees)

The Sigma 30mm ƒ/2.8 DN “Art” lens pack quite a punch in such a small box and for such a small price. While the lens has endured the remake of Sigma’s Global Vision, cosmetics tend to be the only significant improvements over its predecessor. Instead of plastic, the barrel has been revamped with metal and comes in both a black and silver color.

  • With nine rounded aperture blades, a stepping ring motor, and compact design
  • perfect paring of high performance and pricing
  • APS-C format

The Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN is a standard lens used in the Sony E and Canon EF-M mounts, as well as the narrower Micro Four Thirds format, for mirrorless cameras with ‘cropped’ sensors. The Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN produces crisp performance around the frame, with quick and silent focusing, independent of the body you mount it on while the f1.4 focal ratio offers plenty of possibilities for shallow depth-of-field effects. Better still, it is more economical than most similarly covered and f1.4 focal ratio lenses, making it an excellent option for those looking for a high-quality regular lens that can outperform kit zooms in terms of both subject sharpness and background blur. It’s also a perfect choice for someone who shoots bits from a tripod camera. A lack of optical stabilisation is the only true drawback. Micro Four Thirds owners still have an obviously more convincing option with the Lumix G 25mm f1.7, but the Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN becomes seriously appealing for Sony e and particularly Canon EOS M owners, for which it comes Strongly Recommended.

12. Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm F4 ASPH 

Sale
PANASONIC LUMIX G VARIO LENS, 7-14MM, F4.0 ASPH.,...
  • 7-14mm focal length
  • 14-28mm equivalent focal length on Micro Four Thirds cameras
  • F4.0 constant maximum aperture; F22 minimum
  • Image stabilization, via camera body where available

In a comparatively compact box, the LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm F4.0 ASPH has the longest focal length of any Micro Four Thirds lens, backed up by outstanding image clarity across the focal range, a steady F/4.0 aperture and impressively fast autofocusing. However it is larger, heavier and much more costly than the Olympus counterpart (the Olympus M ZD 9-18mm F4-5.6).

Considering the zoom range on sale, this lens is quite tiny and very lightweight, being similar in scale to some of the regular Micro Four Thirds zoom lenses. The standard of construction is also very good, with only the failure to fit philtres detracting from an otherwise outstanding build. Focusing on the new DMC-GH2 camera is incredibly fast and often practically silent, making it well-suited for candid stills and video work.

In a compact and lightweight box, the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 ASPH ultra-wide-angle zoom provides a classic focal range of 16-36mm, backed up by exceptional image quality across the focal range and impressively fast and quiet autofocusing. It’s only a little soft wide-open at 18mm, where for better performance it’s best used stopped down, there’s some predictable barrel distortion at 8mm, and when aiming straight into the sun it’s prone to flare, but otherwise, it offers excellent sharpness at all focal lengths, including at the edges of the picture.

Thanks to its killer combination of a de-clicked aperture ring and focus clutch mechanism with linear manual focusing, the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm F1.7 ASPH is an optically superb, outrageously fast lens that will especially appeal to videographers. It could conceivably replace a variety of prime lenses in your camera bag with stellar output around the aperture and focal lengths, such is the optical consistency on display.
A special, flexible and optically excellent lens, the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm F1.7 ASPH is a must-buy for pro videographers and is seriously tempting.

  • Lightest Single Focal Length Lens
  • Fast, Bright F2.5 Maximum Aperture
  • High-Speed, Silent Contrast AF
  • Multi-Coated Lens Elements

The LUMIX G 14mm F2.5 ASPH is a compact and precisely shaped wide-angle lens that produces exceptional results, making it a fantastic lens for landscapes and unobtrusive street photography, but it is very pricey for a prime lens at £ 357.99 / $ 399.95. The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm f/2.8 from Olympus is its closest rival, but that lens is not as wide-angle or as compact and light, and it has a significantly slower maximum aperture as well, but it is much cheaper than the Panasonic alternative.

16. Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH 

Panasonic Lumix 14mm f/25 G Aspherical Lens for...
  • Lightest Single Focal Length Lens
  • Fast, Bright F2.5 Maximum Aperture
  • High-Speed, Silent Contrast AF
  • Multi-Coated Lens Elements

The Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH is an exceptional moderate wide-angle prime lens that if appropriate, is compact and light enough to bring in a coat pocket. Even when shooting wide-open at f/1.7, it is very well-built and provides excellent image quality at both the centre and edges of the lens, and the very welcome aperture ring makes it fast, simple and precise to set this main exposure feature.

  • Comprised of seven lenses in five groups, closest Focusing Distance:0.2m / 0.66 feet
  • Used with Lumix G Micro System Cameras, allows for use of the advanced contrast Auto Focus (AF) system

The increased build quality should help the lens last longer, but with both the old and new lenses offering the same focus speeds in our tests, there has sadly not been an increase in focus speeds. This latest model should be just as popular as the original and is an excellent alternative for Micro Four Thirds users with the same excellent picture quality, fair value for price, and compact size. The new colour choices also fit the new Panasonic and Olympus cameras well.

For Micro Four Thirds bodies, the Leica Summilux 12mm f1.4 is a high-end lens that offers the classic 24mm coverage. Cheaper – not to mention smaller and lighter – 12mm prime lenses are sold by Olympus and Samyang, but the Summilux is a brighter stop, smoother in the corners when wide-open and the only one that is dust and splash-proof. It’s much more costly, costing almost twice that of the Olympus, but you have to ask yourself if you’re going to take advantage of its advantages. Ultimately, the Summilux is an unabashedly luxury lens that supplies the brands and is a welcome addition to the vast catalogue of Micro Four Thirds.

This makes it ideal for wildlife and sports photographers looking for a reasonably small and lightweight all-in-one optic that is equally hand-held at home or on a help especially because when installed on the DMC-GX8 camera on which we tested it it focuses very quickly and reliably.

A strong addition to Panasonic’s range of Micro Four Thirds lenses is the LUMIX G VARIO 100-300mm F4.0-5.6 Super O.I.S. Instead of the smaller GF cameras, it offers a super-telephoto zoom capable of decent image quality in a comparatively compact box, building on one of the main strengths of the Micro Four Thirds system, at a price that won’t break the bank, better suited to a DSLR-shaped body with a handgrip like the DMC-GH sequence.

The Leica Nocticron is an incredibly high-end prime portrait lens with outstanding efficiency. In full-frame terminology, the 42.5mm focal length becomes equal to 85mm, making it a classic for portrait work, while the f1.2 focal ratio means the field effects can be very shallow. However, what’s really amazing is how sharp the lens is even at the full aperture right in the corners, making it an incredibly versatile choice in low light. It is enough to claim that the rendering of out-of-focus regions is also exceptional. Other than sheer scale, the only drawback is the price that suits the high-end performance. Fortunately, if you can’t hit the Nocticron, there are many great short telephoto primes available for Micro Four Thirds, but for those who demand the highest, here it is.
