Lens Review
Introduction | Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 45-150mm F4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. image quality ranking | Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm f/4.0-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. image quality ranking | Comparisons | Conclusion

If the extra reach of the 45-200mm isn’t needed, or you feel that an equivalent angle of view to 300mm is enough, then the newer 45-150mm with its more video-oriented AF motor is without doubt the lens to choose between the two. Not only is lighter (200g vs 380g) and smaller (62x73mm vs 70x100mm) there’s a saving of $40 to be had.
