Leica 50-200mm review at ePhotozine: “a lovely lens and an Editor’s Choice”

Leica 50-200mm lens at BHphoto, Adorama, Amazon, Panasonic.

ePhotozine posted the full Leica 50-200mm review:

Panasonic has produced here a telephoto zoom that is exceptionally easy to handle, produces excellent results and is priced realistically against the competition. Compared to full frame marques, it is priced very competitively when we consider what job the lens does.
Not only that, but the compact, light construction mirrors the size of the MFT cameras and follows the ethos of the MFT system. It is easy to see the attraction of lighter, smaller cameras and lenses, especially when the quality is still extremely high.
So, on various levels, a lovely lens and an Editor’s Choice.

The Spanish webiste AlbedoMedia (translation here) also tested the new Leica 50-200mm lens:

The Power OIS optical stabilization system met our expectations, minimizing trepidation both in the final image and in the previous act of correctly composing each scene in the electronic viewfinder or back screen with total precision.

We can appreciate a very good level of detail and definition in the resulting images. Recall that the Panasonic Leica Vario-Elmarit 50-200 mm internally has a complex optical scheme of 21 elements in 15 groups, including aspherical and low dispersion lenses.

In all the samples is clear the ability of this optics to generate selective approaches well defined and defined, in the same way that its bokeh is very smooth, with a transition to very homogeneous planes out of focus.

New GX9 and TZ200 reviews

Photographyblog reviewed the new GX9:

The GX9 is really fast, its touchscreen works a treat, silent mode is very welcome, plus the camera is packed with so many features and shooting modes. 
Bottom line; the Panasonic Lumix GX9 is a very able and affordable offering in the Lumix G series of cameras. Against the GX80 there are numerous refinements and plenty of reasons to go for the GX9 instead.

ePhotozine tested ther TZ200:

For the price, the Panasonic Lumix TZ200 offers a whole host of features, manual controls, an excellent zoom and it’s a doddle to use. The TZ200 can be easily used by someone who’s just getting to grips with photography as well as a more seasoned pro who’s looking for a pocket zoom that’s perfect for their travels. The camera also delivers excellent images, with good colour, good detail, and good noise performance. Plus, it’s size means you won’t notice its weight or be annoyed by its size when you’re out-and-about. 
The Panasonic Lumix TZ200 is a lovely little camera that packs a lot of punch – Highly Recommended.
