I just received my GH3 and now looking for lenses that have some focal zoom and would be fit for videos too. General use indoors (interviews) and some scenery. Here are some suggestions that were made to me. Budget around $500. Kindly provide your feedback and comments:

Olympus 12-50mm/f.3.5-6.3? $500 at store.

Panasonic 14-45/f.3.5-5.6 at $350 at store.

Panasonic 14-140/f.4-5.8 for $619 on Amazon.

Panasonic 100-300mm f/4.0-5.6 for $500 on Amazon/$700 at store.

Thank you.

If you do not pretend to get top notch quality indoors, select Olympus 12-50 or Panasonic 14-45 (both are tad brighter), select ISO 800-1250 or higher (depends on your indoor conditions), and go forward.

Also you can expand your list including some 14-42 and 14-42(X) lenses.

I did not include Panasonic 14-140, but this is could be the lens you want.

I did not include Panasonic 100-300 because this lens is not for videos indoors

Looking for equilibrium...

S-grins, Thank you for the tips. I will consider your advice. 14-140 seems the most all-around among them in my budget.
