The first video is very nice. looks like Scotland? Lovely colour. And it goes to show just how sterling a job the kit lens does in good light. it cant be beaten, at least not by anything without OSS. your 'dolly' style shots are so smooth thanks to the oss.

You will be so thankful you captured this amazing footage when your child is older. I'd love to be able to see my early childhood in such a cinematic way.

I am using a Nex5n for a bit of video stuff myself:- https://vimeo.com/38921135

This was shot using zuiko 50mm f1.4, wide open all night long. I'd love a lens like this with OSS, but the damn 50mmf1.8 oss is like rocking horse

edit* as a side note, I like to shoot 25p with 1/25th sec shutter, meaning each frame is exposed for the full cycle. i find you lose some sharpness when paused, but it flows in what i consider a slightly more filmic way
