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.

you will be using lighting if for no other reason than consistent white ballance across the subject.

If it is a single person interview, an LED panel and modifier would work fine and the 14-45mm lens would be a good focal range fit.

The GH3 has plenty of ISO range to make that kind of output work.

You can get it for $275.0 at


Tedolf, Thank you. Yes, I will be using light for planned interviews. I like the aperture of the 14-45 and the range of the 14-140. I will research both lenses more. I found very good prices on Amazon used and new from sellers in US by the way. All my experience so far is off books or tutorials and I need to get my hands on a lens very soon
