The Panasonic Lumix G VARIO 45-175mm f/4.0-5.6 is a compact telephoto zoom lens suitable for the Micro Four Thirds System and achieves high descriptive performance for resolution and contrast at entire zoom range 45-175mm (35mm camera equivalent: 90-350mm) without changing the overall length, making it an ideal compact zoom for all situations. In addition, the lens system features the inclusion of 2 ED lenses, which suppress chromatic aberration, contributing to high descriptive performance at entire zoom range. It incorporates Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. stabiliser, which makes it easy to shoot crystal-clear shots in a range of different lighting conditions, and removes blur caused by hand shake.

Comments about Panasonic 45-175mm f4.0-5.6 LUMIX G X Vario Micro Four Thirds Lens:
This lens is well built and feels solid but not too heavy. I've used it on a Panasonic G5 and GX1 and it feels balanced on both. Being able to use the zoom lever or twist the focus ring to focus is good and the zoom lever focusing is smooth and feels quite natural to use. When used in good light it focuses quickly and quietly throughout the zoom range and when stopped down a bit is sharp enough for most, but I'm not a Pixel Peeper!I do wish it had a faster aperture but for the price I can't complain too much!It gets 5 stars from me because unless you want to spend 3 times the money on the 35-100 2.8 you won't get a better zoom for your money.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this lens - it's light weight, doesn't change length, the image stabilisation works extremely well. Image quality on a GF5 is extremely good - basically as good as the 14-42 x lens I otherwise use on the GF5 (unlike say, the 55-300 Pentax lens for my K5 which is fun but no where near as good as a shorter zoom).

Great compromise lens
About Me Getting started
Recently puchased this lens after having a Pansonic GX1 with 42mm 'x' lens for a few months and finding the range just a bit limiting.Have to say coming from the 'point and shoot' back ground rather than the DSLR downgrade route I find this kit works perfectly for me.I know other reviewers have found problems with the lens stabilisation but have to say, really not been a problem for me.Initially it wasn't the easiest decision to buy this lens but looking at previous reviews it was clear that the Pansonic 200mm zoom isn't the best quality and whilst the the 300mm gets execllent reviews I'm guessing that it benefits from a tripod when used toward the end of its range (nearly 600mm 35mm equivilant), leaving me with this as the compromise.Overall I'm very happy and the light weight constructions makes it very portable. Hardest thing was to find a smallish bag to take the GX1 and the 2 'x' range lens. In the end I ended up with a samsonite bag that allows me to leave the 42mm lens on the camera and store the 175mm beside it.All worked out well in the end and would recommend to other micro four third camera owners.
