  • Lens query

    I have just bought a used Lumix G2 with the 14mm - 42mm kit lens. I find the lens does not move smoothly but tends to stop and start especially from telephoto back down to wide angle. This is not a problem with still shots but in movie mode the result is jerky. Does anyone know if this is normal for this lens. I emailed the previous owner and she said she did not experience any problems with it.

    The kit lens is fairly cheap and while it should zoom reasonably smoothly, some uneven progress doesn't surprise me. Panasonic does offer a strap-on zoom lever that I believe will fit your lens and this will make zooming action smoother. See:
