    I think I have exhausted the threads and haven't found this info. So if it's around I'm sorry.

    I am a pro video guy making the switch to a GH3. I shoot business and commercial video and do portrait still work.

    I own some Nikon glass so will be getting an adaptor so I can still use them.

    Looks like the Panasonic lenses get great reviews, any suggestions for others that go well for video and portraits and some sports coverage?

    I plan to get a Tascam D60 for audio and a rig at some point but will just use my, now overkill, video tripod.

    Thanks for any advise from those who are already where I am planning to go.

    If you got Nikon glass you should consider getting Nikon G to M43 Speedbooster that will make your existing Nikon lens 1 stop faster and wider when paired up with GH3

    The 12-35 is a great all rounder lens that I used a lot on my GH3 (especially for gun and run), you can get 35-100 or 100-300 if you need longer zoom needs, for me I don't shoot indoor stage so 45-175mm with powerzoom actually fits me better

    I purchased the GH3 more the video side as well... it's difficult to beat Voigtlander's offerings. I have the 17.5mm, and love it for video. I'd imagine their new 42.5mm would be perfect if you are doing portrait work as well.

    Tell us what HW you are currently using for your videos.

    14-140 is a solid 10x video zoom. There's the 12-35/35-100 zooms if you need maximum low light performance and have the money for them. The speed booster suggestion is a very good idea as well.

    Awesome. I have F mount I think. I'm assuming fastest class 10 memory card works best?
