Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 35-100mm F2.8
Image quality: 10/10
Value for money: 8/10
The LUMIX G VARIO 35-100mm F2.8 is the best telephoto zoom for the Micro Four Thirds system. It offers a classic 35mm focal range with a fast maximum aperture in a relatively tiny and lightweight package, backed-up by excellent image quality throughout the focal range.Also on offer are the best build quality of any Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lens yet released, a tactile manual focusing system and impressively fast and quiet autofocusing. The only downsides are that it is a little soft at f/2.8 and f/4 at the edges of the frame (but excellent in the center) and the asking price of £1099 / $1499 makes it more expensive than most Micro Four Thirds bodies.
