Unless you need to shoot video in very low light, or want to shoot specialized video with shallow depth of field, I'd highly recommend the 14-140. It's a perfect combination for the GH2: feels great on the camera, very versatile zoom range, nearly step-less aperture changes when shooting video, fast and silent autofocus, and OIS.

You can get great results with fast primes, but as the others mentioned, stabilization is a major factor. The 14-140 is going to be your best bet for an all-purpose video lens.
