Olympus 12-200mm f/4 IS PRO
This is a superb lens. I bought it new from B&H in May 2017. Includes all items that came with the new lens: Olympus box, hood, caps, and pouch.

The lens has a manual focus clutch, and it features a 7-blade rounded diaphragm. It has an L-Fn function button that can be programmed to your specifications.

This is the perfect travel lens which is easy to carry all day. Very sharp and compact lens. When on a September 2017 tour of Hamburg, Scandinavia, St. Petersburg, and a Baltic cruise, this was the only lens I carried. Its reach is amazing. The new owner will seldom need to carry additional lenses while traveling with this stunning zoom lens, covering equivalent of 24-200mm.

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14 f/4 Aspherical AF ED
I bought this lens new shortly after its release by Panasonic. I was attracted to its high quality at a time of limited available Micro Four Thirds glass of the quality of the Canon gear I had been using at that time.

It was very pricey at that time (around $1,000) but its ultra-wide zoom shooting angles (114 degrees at the 7mm end) and optical quality were compelling. I was not disappointed.

The thing that I have most liked about this lens is the breadth of its visual coverage, given that it is a rectilinear ultra-wide lens. This rectilinear feature prevents the image distortion typically experienced with ultra-wide lenses. But very interesting, creative distortion can be introduced into your images by composing outside of the horizontal plane or by moving at slight angles to the ground.

The good news:

• Very fine resolution performance, especially close to the 7mm end of its range, where it produces stunning results. Even at the 14mm end of its range, the results are quite good.
• The lens is quite compact and light, despite its complex combination of 16 lens elements in 12 groups.
• High performance is provided by two aspherical lenses and four ED lenses.
• Having 7 aperture blades produces a rounded shape to very attractive bokeh effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture.
• Lens elements are multi-coated to minimize ghosts and flare which, together with a petal-shaped, permanently fixed lens hood, provide good reduction of flare and surface reflections.
• The maximum aperture is a constant f/4.0, which delivers good performance throughout the zoom range.
• Its zoom range has a 35mm equivalent of 14-28mm.
• Autofocus can easily be manually overridden for fine tuning by using the manual focus ring on the front of the lens. Manual focusing is seldom needed due to the its great inherent depth of field.
