After our standard Pro zoom lens shoot out, we decided to put the telephoto lenses against one another. As mirrorless camera systems have evolved and continue to develop, they’ve had to meet the demands of professional photographers who have picked up their systems. One of the classic zoom lenses that many photographers tend to reach for is the equivalent of a 70-200mm f2.8 lens. These lenses are great for portraits, events, weddings, landscapes and pretty much anything that you can think of due to their versatility.

So with Fujifilm, Samsung, Olympus, and Panasonic all offering their own versions, which one is the best?

Mirrorless camera manufacturers have been working at creating better lenses and building out their systems. Very recently, the manufacturers with APS-C and Four Thirds sensors came up with constant aperture pro zoom lenses for their cameras.

Now don’t get us wrong: no manufacturer is making a bad lens or camera. In fact, all of them are superb. So with that in mind, we went about rounding up the information that we collected and figuring out which lens delivers the most pleasing results based on the specific system that they work with.

Our results are after the jump.

Though they’re usually better known for lots of their very premium grade lenses, Panasonic today announced two new lenses: the LUMIX G 42.5mm F1.7 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. and the LUMIX G Macro 30mm F2.8 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. lenses.

The 42.5mm f1.7 is obviously being targeted at portrait shooters, and is a more affordable version than their 42.5mm f1.2 lens. At its heart, it houses 10 elements in 8 groups, a close focusing distance of 12.2 inches, a metal mount, multi-coated lens elements, and POWER O.I.S.

But on the other side of the spectrum is the 30mm f2.8 MEGA OIS lens which is targeted at macro shooters. Panasonic states that it’s got a 1x life-size magnification, a focusing distance starting at 4.13 inches, has a metal mount, and 9 lenses in 9 groups including an aspherical element.

The Panasonic 30mm Macro f2.8 will be available in April and the Panasonic 42.5mm f1.7 in May at $399.99 each.
