      So I pre-ordered an I2 with the X5S camera. The camera and gimbal look identical to the X5 physically. DJI shows the following camera as being compatible with the X5S but I don't see it in the list above.

      Panasonic Lumix 14-42mm/3.5-5.6 HD

      So two questions:
      Does anyone know if this lens works on the X5?
      Does anyone have experience with this lens?

      I watched the review on the Olympus 14-42mm zoom lens and the review seemed mixed. My biggest concern was how hard it fits onto the camera.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      @Rotofan yeah that confused me too, I didn't think that lens was commonly used on X5. That lens is not a power zoom and it's considerably longer than the Olympus 14-42 mm EZ.

      I have tried the Olympus 14-42 mm EZ on my X5, and yes it did not fit properly. You would have to grind down some of the grip for it to fit. This is strange, since DJI stock a balancing ring option for it...

      Of the lenses I tried, I like most the Panasonic 42.5 mm, it fit very neatly and didn't need balancing. I guess it depends what you're going to photograph. I have bought the Panasonic 35-100 mm instead, wanting the longest telephoto I could balance easily.

      Lloyd,

      Thanks for the response! I am going to have to noodle on this a little more. I will checkout Panasonic 35-100mm.
