I'd say brilliant choices if you have a video emphasis.

My 22 yr old son started his own Media/Marketing company 2 yrs ago and he has the GH2, GH3, Voigt 17.5/.95, the Voigt 25/.95 & Panny's 12-35 + 35-100 (no help from me - I bought a GH1 in 2010 and the rest....). He is 98% video and 2% stills.

By far the Voigt 17.5 is the go to lens. The Voigt 25 is 2nd and 35-100 is 3rd. He regrets buying the 12-35 and it now sits nicely on my EM5. Although too often my EM5 disappears for run and gun gigs with the 17.5.

His next purchase will be the BMPC or any Oly that takes video seriously. He really likes the IBIS.
