I don't know that you need to go all the way up to a $1200 Nokton to make low light videos. Tey a $31.99 Fujian CCTV lens with supplied adapter off ebay. It ought to give you all kinds of swirly effects.

Great tip! I just ordered the Fujian 25mm f1.4 for $32. What a deal. I've already seen some test footage of that lens on the GH2 and it looks pretty good. I take it that just stepping up from f1.7 to f1.4 is a significant jump in low-light reception...
