    Is there a list of all MFT fit lenses with perhaps a little information about each?

    I'm new to MFT, having just bought a GX7 (downsizing from 5DIII), and I'm struggling to understand the difference between the 14-140mm Panasonic lenses - H-VS014140 and H-FS14140. (Actully for my wife's G3)

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    14-140mm F3.5-5.6
    (28-280mm : 35mm equivalent)

    14-140mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S.

    A New Compact and Stylish High Zoom Digital Interchangeable Lens
    This new lens offers a wide and long zoom range of 14-140mm (35mm camera equivalent: 28-280mm) to suit a large variety of shooting situations yet keeping its profile stylishly compact and lightweight.
    The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively compensates for not only small, fast movement but also large, slow one making it easy to shoot super clear shots even in low-lit situations such as in night time or indoors.
    It is also compatible with the sensor drive at max.240 fps to take maximum advantage of cameras with high-speed AF such as DMC-GH3 and the new DMC-G6.

It offers a long zoom of 14-140mm (35mm camera equivalent: 28-280mm) suitable for a wide range of shooting situations from scenery to portraits to telephoto shots, all possible with this compact and lightweight lens. Using 4 aspherical lenses and 2 ED lenses to achieve dramatic downsizing - despite its powerful 10x optical zoom - and still minimizes distortion and chromatic aberration. Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) incorporated in the lens making it easy to shoot clear and blur-free shots even in telephoto shooting or in low-light situations. It also features a highly reliable metal mount, and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its optical performance.

    H-FS14140 is the newer version of the 14-140mm zoom lens. It is smaller and lighter than the other version, and slightly better in low light.
