    Very nice video.
    But how is the new lens better than the old one? By all accounts I've read, it's the same optically and has the same slow focusing issues.

    BLACK MAGIC indeed Lobbamobba! Yeah the lens looks great, but frankly I'm more impressed with the "video" output from the "pocket" camera!

    Thanks for sharing...

    Better build quality but most importantly better and smoother manual focus which is golden for a videographer. I never use AF for video.

    I often hear that its got slow AF for stills but I had the old version on my OMD and took sharp pictures of fighter jets coming in to land from 50m away, I wonder when I would take pictures of faster stuff then that :)
