Panasonic 100 300mm II Lens (1)

We go hands-on with the new Panasonic Lumix 45-200mm Mark II, and 100-300mm II lenses, both updated with with weather-sealing (dust and splashproof) and new designs (matt and noble black). The original Panasonic Lumix 45-200mm lens was discontinued, but offered a compelling zoom range from 90mm to 400mm equivalent. The original Panasonic 100-300mm lens offers 200-600mm equivalent, and is one of Panasonic's best selling lenses.
