anyone prefer panny 14mm to the 20mm?......
May 14, 2012

......I'm primarily looking for:

1) a faster lens than my 14-140 for use indoors with my gh-1
2) a lens that performs well for video as well as stills

I'm a true rank amateur. My still/video usage is probably 75%-25%. Most photos are of kids/family events/friends, some sports, some birding.

I purchased the gf-3 w/ 14mm AND the 20mm, but have promised the wife I'll only keep one. My plan so far is to give up the 20mm, and save up for the 25mm 1.4 eventually. That way, I keep the better vid performer (14mm) which is still better in low light than the 14-140, and I eventually cover the 20-25mm focal length range with a lens that, from what i gather here, is a quicker performer than the 20mm, and comparable in IQ.

Anyone have experience with any 2 of the 3 lenses listed (or all three)? I'd love to hear your impressions of both the lenses and my plans.

Thanks to all in advance,
Mike
