If video is important buy Olympus 12-40 f2.8

I’ve taken video with my 20mm Panny But it’s noisy.

So is my 25mm Panny f1.7 although not as noisy.

My Olympus 17mm f1.8 is an excellent video lens, but for what they cost you would be close to the Olympus 12-40 Pro f2.8 as a used lens.

There’s a reason an Oly 12-40 Pro costs close to $1,000 as a new lens—they are worth every cent.

But a good used copy or gray market 12-40 Pro is around five hundred.

Then you could have a cheap, fast, sharp Panny 20mm prime too.
