i've just got a lumix gf2 , it came with the standard 14-42mm lens which doesn't have much of a zoom on it so i'm looking for a lens which can handle d o f , landscapes and have a decent zoom as well , is there a decent , reasonably priced all round lens that will do all this

thanks

If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution, then you’ve got a couple of options. The Panasonic 14-140mm f/4.5-5.8 offers a 35mm focal length equivalent of 28-280mm, allowing you to get really close to your subjects. It incorporates MEGA O.I.S. to counteract camera shake, but will set you back about £740.

Because your GF2 is based round the Micro Four Thirds mount, another option is the Olympus 14-150mm f/4-5.6. It offers an even longer reach to an equivalent of 300mm and is a fair bit cheaper at £499.

If you want to keep the budget down and are prepared to take an additional lens, swapping between it and your existing 14-42mm kit lens, then the Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 is definitely worth a look. It gives an even longer reach than the other two lens mentioned, while only setting you back £279. Hope this helps.
