Description

With a very heavy heart, I am listing this lens which I love very much. Unfortunately, we've recently had some expenses, and after talking it over with my spouse, we decided I should part with a lens "since I already have enough" for some compensation.
I am listing a Panasonic Leica Vario-Elmar D 14-150mm f/3.5-5.6 lens along with a Panasonic MA1 four thirds to m43 electronic adapter.
The lens:
Panasonic Leica D Vario-Elmar 14-150mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Mega O.I.S. (- really great, I love it. Nice bokeh, great resolution for a superzoom lens, feels great in hand, and has nice heft for good balance for steady shots at long focal lengths. Smooth operation, phase detection autofocus on my Olympus E-M1 makes it actually easier to focus on correct subject outdoors when I take nature photos. Glass is in excellent condition. Barrel has some wear along one line, and the rest looks neat and clean. Overall very good condition. Solid metal construction. Has a dedicated aperture ring for Panasonic cameras (does not work on Olympus cameras).
- Comes with original box, neoprene pouch, lens hood from Panasonic Leica D 14-50mm f/2.8 (slightly smaller in size than the one for 14-150mm, more compact), a generic lens cap, rear Panasonic cap. Also including a slim Hoya Pro 1 Digital multicoated UV(0) filter (72mm threading). I've done a lot of testing with and without this filter, and it appears quite safe to keep on full time for protection--I don't notice any extra flaring or image degradation.
- Sample photos using this lens and adapter. Also this album.
The adapter:
Panasonic Lumix DMW-MA1 (
