Red Motorcycle

Motorcycle -- Panasonic G1 & Panasonic 45-200mm Lens. Click to see larger.

I have had the Panasonic 45-200mm lens for almost a year, but never really use it much.  For some reason, this lens doesn't give me the desire to use it, like many of my other lenses.  In my opinion, it's a fine lens, but nothing spectacular.  For one thing, it's maximum aperture is slow at f5.6 at the long end.  I don't like slow lenses, especially slow zoom lenses.


  1. get a new bike?

    I like scooters for around town :-)

    I agree with you on the 45-200 ... sold mine after 2 months of ownership and haven't missed it. Just bought a FD 200 f2.8, expect to see that reviewed soon ;-)

  2. obakesan: my normal transportation around town is a bicycle. I bike to work year round, even in the winter and snow. I would love to ride a motorcycle but I don't think it will happen, at least not in the near future :)

    I am putting up my 45-200 for sale too. Can't justify keeping it with such infrequent use.
