Panny & other lenses.

Hi to all,

I have both an EPL-1 twin lens kit plus a Lumix G3...... with the 14-42mm kit lens and the 20mm pancake and also a 28mm f1.8 vivitar manual lens via an adapter.

Is the Panny 45-200mm lens worth the money ?

I'd like a long zoom plus having OIS built-in might be better than an non-OIS lens of a different make.

I've seen it priced at 229 so maybe Santa will be kind to me and help me with some funds to help purchase it.

Any advice is always welcome !
Thanks in anticipation

Re: Panny & other lenses.

In the right circumstances, ie, bright conditions, it can be a stunning lens. The G3/GH2 especially bring out the best in this lens.
