Re: Relativity

my personal (and very subjective) opinion

Slr magic 35mm (used on panasonic gh2) - great for filming - gives a "film" look to my videos. Hard to use for pictures due to the lack of OS without a tripod.

Kitlens 14-42 mm. Sometimes slow to focus or defocuses during video, but its not that common. Very solid.

Panasonic 20 mm 1.7. I hate this lens, others love it. To me, I hate the noise the motor makes, I hate the lens breathing, slow focusing.

Olympus 40-150 mm. Very good optics IMO, takes sharp pictures. If you use a panny body you will need a tripod too for the longest reach because there is no in OS.

Samyang 7,5mm. Good fisheye, for pictures its often too dark IMO, for filming I don't experience the same problem.
