    I just received my Pany 45-150 to go with my G5. I attached the lens to the camera, but I can't get it to zoom. The owners manual isn't much help. Am I missing something. It is attached correctly, and stabilizing is on in the menu section.

    I got the same lens and have had no problem. It is not a power zoom, so the little rocker button on the camera won't work, if that's what you are trying.

    I'm an idiot!!!:dash2: In my giddiness of getting the lens, I lost my mind thinking it would power zoom, when I knew perfectly well it doesn't. Excuse my loss of conscious thought. Long day.:th_salute:

    Dude, I'm happy your lens works right! While I am still a bit lukewarm on the G5 (but optimistic I'll learn to love it), I have been very pleased with the 45-150 it came with.
