    I have been using the gf2 for video work and have been quite satisfied with the results - I was wondering whether anyone had any experience of using a micro four thirds camera with a follow focus? One major challenge I have faced is retaining sharp focus results and have missed several crucial shots trying to focus the 20mm lens I'm using.

    EVF with focus assist is key:

    Also, shooting the 20 wide open is very tempting, but a quick look at a DOF calculator will show you how thick/thin your DOF is. I often shoot at F3.2 or F4.0 when doing interviews for this reason.
