What lens?

Hi all, I recently moved over to M/4/3 in the shape of a Panasonic GX7, it has a Panny 12-32 fitted and its a cracking little lens, sharp at all apertures, however, the wide angle is at 12 and great for landscapes but I need something a bit longer at the tele end. I can't afford the high end lenses, but there are Panny and Olympus options up to about 150. I guess the panny zooms must be considered as they have built in OIS where as the Oly lenses don't, Plus 3rd party lenses which I don't know much about.

Happy Christmas and New Year

I have a Tamron 14-150 (reviewed on ePz database) which is a great addition.
Although with Panasonic you'd not have image stabilisation.

The panasonic 40-150 would be good if happy carrying two lenses.

I also have a panny 12-32 and agree is a great lens.

I have a Panny 14-140 (latest version) on my G80. Very impressed with its IQ and it's lightweight too.

I too have the 14-140. Brilliant lens. You'd hardly need anything else.
I also have the 12-35, the quality of which is also very good, but as you say, sometimes you need the extra reach.

another vote for the 14-140, I don't like changing lens when I'm out and about!
