12-40 in low light video/photo's
6 months ago

I'm looking for some real life photo's to see how this lens does indoors (particularly family events or parties), no flash.  I'm playing with the idea that this could replace my 12mm F2 lens considering the high ISO performance of my EPL5 (as well if I upgrade to a EM10 or EP5 the extra stabilization will help too) will compensate for the slower lens.

Opinions are appreciated particularly if you have already made this switch.  I don't pixel peep but don't particularly like noisy pictures, and these aren't photo's I'd be blowing up, or if something special was captured then maybe max 5x7 or 8x10.  Plus I shoot JPEG rather than RAW.

As for video's, I film family parties indoors, outdoor soccer, etc, so nothing professional, but my primary purpose for the 12mm was my indoors videos and general walkaround lens since I like the 12mm focal length.
