Re: GoPro or 12-35mm F2.8 lens with GH3?

The GoPro is extremely light with the frame. You don’t even notice it is on the GH2. That will be even more so with the GH3 since it is heavier.

The nice thing about using the GoPro is that I can shoot wide angle and telephoto simultaneously. If there is a sudden movement that causes the subject to go out of the GH2’s frame or lose focus I can just fall back to the GoPro’s footage.

Now I don’t have to worry about changing lenses or missing certain shots. I just film away.

The GoPro definitely is no replacement for stills though. For stills I wouldn’t get the 12-35mm F2.8 though. I would do the 12mm F2.0 and 25mm F1.4. Those are a much better option and about the same price.
