Gas

May 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Gas or "gear acquirement syndrome" is something I am certainly suffering from. A real problem for a gadget freak like me. In the past I have owned several long zoom lenses ( ~ 10x zoom). For instance Nikon 18-200mm VR, Tamron 16-300mm VC , Olympus 14-150 MFT and an older Olympus FT lens.  While the Nikon and Olympus FT lens did there job satisfactory in the past, I sold them because of system changes such as DX to FF and FT to MFT. The Tamron and the newer Olympus MFT, I did not consider good enough for my spoiled taste for sharpness. Again I bought a lens like this because of convenience reasons, the Panasonic 14-140mm f3.5-5.6 MFT lens. With the latest firmware update, this one gives dual IS 2 image stabilisation on my G80 camera. Although certainly not as sharp as prime lenses or short zoom lenses, I think I can live with the sharpness of this lens in spite of it's limitations. It becomes all a bit soft at the longer end of the zoom, but with some post processing it seems OK. Maybe exemplary deviations play a big role with budget lenses like these ? Here are some first results from the lens.
