This indoor snapshot taken with a GH2, ISO 2500, at a birthday party, was handheld, 140mm (280mm equivalent!) at 1/15 of a second shutter. That's how good the OIS is with this lens. The 14-140 truly is an impressive lens.

I'm going to guess your technique is a factor too :wink: I've had a good experience with OIS but it's not usually quite that good for me!

j... thanks for the comment. When I first witnessed the effectiveness of the OIS in the 14-140 I was very surprised. Yes, how the camera & lens are held, how gently the shutter button is pressed, and overall steadiness are certainly factors. In this case, I was standing and not braced against nor leaning on anything. I've experienced this lens stabilizing 140mm at about 1/15th sec. very well on several occasions... each case is unique, of course. :smile:

Don, are those two Mt. Rushmore shots from standing in approximately the same spot? If so that really says a lot about the versatility of this lens! The 14-140 has very quickly become a most-used lens for me... it's just fantastic versatility when I want to just grab the camera and go somewhere.

I love the monochrome color on the bison, just seems to fit the image well and reminds me of 1900s era photographs (EDIT: that was supposed to be 1800s but I guess it works either way haha).

Yes. The 10x range from 28mm to 280mm equivalent is monstrous. And what's amazing is that this huge range is covered with excellent performance. I have no quibbles about the performance of this lens whatsoever. Compared to many other m4/3 lenses, it is comparatively bulky, but it delivers the goods over a very wide range magnificently.

I completely agree with Don about the OIS. This shot should require about 1/250 or so shutter speed and you can see I was well below that. Like many others I wish it was a little faster and sharper at the long end, but you can get some great shots out of it.

GX1, 14-140 @ 114mm and f/5.8, shutter speed 1/60 -
