    Hello, first post from Swedens newest m4\3 user.
    I just switched from Canon 600d to a GH3 and have started buying my first m4/3 lenses. Im planing on getting one of the 2.8 zooms and a bunch of primes. The focal length I use in 95% of the cases is a 50mm equivalent, therefore I thought I woud buy a really nice one.

    So I went for a Voigtländer and Im totaly loving it.
    Here is the first takes I did, they arent great but it was allso the first time I used a Panasonic and wasnt really knowing what I was doing.

    Nice. Thanks for sharing the video. I just bought a GH3 and Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 as my start up coming from Canon as well! 50mm equivalent is also my most used FL.

    That VL 25mm looks like a really nice lens, as it should be considering the price. Is the aperture ring on VL M43 lenses clicked based or click free ?

    The 25 clicks, the 17.5 can click or be click free.

    Ahhh k. Thanks for the info. I wonder if the new 42.5mm VL lens will be have the option to be click free. Its a nice feature to have for video work.

    Nice job on the video. I love my 25 as well, here's hoping for a 12-14mm in the future ;)

    I was also looking at the 25 1.4 seems like very nice lens, but I'm probably going to get the Olympus 17/f1.8, so I thought that would serve as my normal prime with autofocus for "run and gun".

    Yes it would be so cool to have a nice pelli case with just 0.95 primes like 12,17,25,50,75,100 and since I'm just dreaming I'll throw a 200/f0.95 in there
