Olympus OM-D and superzoom


Not as sharp or nice to use on the OM-D as the 12-35mm, the Panasonic 14-140mm "superzoom" is nonetheless a very useful lens. By saving having to change lenses it allows fast shooting and allows me to spend my time "hunting" images. Works pretty well on the OM-D and I prefer it to the Olympus 14-150mm version, which although decent optically isn't so well made and of course offers no form of IS on Panasonic cameras. 

The 14-140mm isn't as good as the 4/3 Leica 14-150mm either, but there's not a lot in it. However the 14-140mm is a much faster focusing lens with its native m4/3 mount, negating the need for the 4/3 > m4/3 adapter. Indeed this lens is lightning fast on the G5. So all in all a good compromise for me.

Finally the OM-D + 14-140mm is a good deal smaller and lighter than the Nikon D800E + 28-300mm option plus I also like the extra DOF I get from the m4/3 system.
