Check the ever-handy http://hazeghi.org/mft-lenses.html when in doubt. Then try amazon.. ah well.

version 1 on top, back in the HD-logo days. Lenses are the same size but my screenshots don't care.

I have the original (my first non-kit lens purchase) and it's very good. It's ideal for shooting indoors, such as a play or assembly/ceremony (when we had those).

When the released the second version I remember wondering what could have been improved.
It's probably my favorite Panasonic lens because Olympus doesn't have anything that matches this focal length/speed (from what I can remember).

They only improved compatibility with Dual IS 2.0 (Dual IS 1.0 is supported) and the WR includes frost resistance. The rest is cosmectic. No reason to fuss.

Olympus has the 40-150/2.8.
BUT, it is BIGGER and HEAVIER.
So while I have the 40-150/2.8, I have the Panasonic 35-100/2.8 on my short list.

If anyone is thinking of buy this lens and can afford it (it's quite pricey, although you can find secondhand ones) I would say get it, it's a lovely lens! It's small and fast for it's focal length range; it's light and very well constructed. It has internal focusing, which is normal these days, and internal zooming which isn't; so it stays compact and doesn't trombone when zoomed. It's also sharp. It's great on my G9, as you would expect, but also on the EM1 Mk2, which I recently updated to a Mk3. In fact it really seems to complement Olympus bodies, better in my opinion than the larger and heavier 40-150 f2.8. As you can probably tell, it's one of my favourite M4/3 lenses.

El motor interno de enfoque también es nuevo, ahora corre a 240 fps para hacerlo más rápido y preciso en los cuerpos de cámaras nuevos.
