Is the Lumix G 35-100 f2.8 a DSLR Killer?

Is the Lumix G 35-100 f2.8 lens for the Lumix GH3 M43 system a DSLR killer (because it replaces the 70-200 f2.8 zoom lens for full frame DSLR cameras)?

Longtime Southern California Pro Photographer Paul Gero explores mirrorless and invites you to come along for the ride.  He’ll share images from this lens on both the Lumix GH2 and GH3 and compare them to images made with full frame DSLR cameras.  This professional grade lens will be a worthy addition to the lens kit of the M43 system and may tip the balance for many to use these smaller cameras in place of larger full frame DSLR systems.

First, the physical comparisons (amazing differences):

  • Look at the size comparison
  • Look at the weight comparison

Next is the color. He is blown away by the quality and color of the GH2 with the 35-100 f2.8 lens.

See for yourself!

About the Author:

I have known that I wanted to be a photographer since I was a 12-year-old boy on the prairies of Wisconsin. I grew up, headed off to college and upon graduation, started my amazing 19-year career in daily journalism. While working for two large newspapers I had the opportunity to photograph presidents, princesses & princes, heads of state, corporate titans, even Sir Charles Barkley and King Michael Jordan over the course of literally thousands of photographic assignments. It was also during this time that I had my work published in international magazines as a freelance photographer. It was photographing a wedding that I met my wife Nicki. She was a member of the wedding party and a current resident of South Africa, where she was born and raised. Before she left for home ten days later, we were engaged. Despite being separated by thousands of miles, nine time zones and an exceptionally thorough US Immigration agent, we were married a year later almost to the day. Nicki and I then moved to Southern California, following our dreams to create a new life in a place that was new for both of us. We launched Paul F. Gero Photography and began our journey together. Our lives changed big time in 2005 with the birth of our sassy little madam Kate and again in 2009 with our little guy Matthew, or Sparky as everyone but my Mom calls him. These two have given our life a richness of meaning that is hard to put into words. They are, without a doubt, our finest creations. I simply love photography. But the truth is if you are a working photographer you HAVE to love photography or frankly why do it? I consider it the highest honor to be invited into your life to document your wedding and to photograph your family.
