For a Micro 4:3 Zoom lens, you cannot beat these scores

With a DxOMark score of 17 the Lumix G X Vario 35-100 is one of the two best zoom lenses available for Micro 4:3, the other being the Lumix G X Vario 12-35 which we mentioned before, the score of 17 is also very consistent throughout the focal length range. The specific scores are consistently ‘best in class’, comparing very well with other Micro 4:3 zoom lenses. Distortion is an issue at 35mm but not to the point where it is a problem, it could easily be rectified using DxO Optics Pro.
