Panasonic Lumix S 28-200mm F4-7.1 Macro OIS sample gallery: Digital Photography Review

Panasonic’s newest zoom lens, the Lumix S 28-200mm F4-7.1 Macro OIS, covers a range of popular focal lengths for travel photography, so I decided to take it on a recent trip to Japan as my sole travel lens, using it to photograph everything from snow monkeys near Nagano to night scenes in Yokohama.
A couple of notes about this gallery: All the photos were captured using a Panasonic S5IIX camera, a 24MP body, as we’re working on finishing up our review of the S5II and S5IIX, and this was the camera I had with me in Japan. We’ll add photos from a higher-resolution body at a later date. Similarly, we’ll add some macro images to the gallery when we get a chance.
