Voigt is likely the better option for video, where AF and fly-by-wire can be detrimental to the artist's vision. DOF is indeed very shallow @ 0.95 but it is fun taking pictures/ video in the dark sans flash.

Pana looks to be a brilliant lens.

EDIT: to give you an idea of how much light F0.95 gathers, I was away last week in Florida and during filming I needed close to 5-6 stops ND filter light reduction outdoors all the way until early evening when the sun was already weak.  I wish my GH3 had ISO 50, that would help!
