    I tried video with a EM5 but I was not happy so I bought a GH-3. Now I am happy. My original use was as an unmanned static camera but I really like the form factor so I have been trying it as a candid roving camera......not bad.

    My favorite lenses are all Olympus which means there is no stabilization when mounted on the GH-4. I am looking for some feedback on using the Panasonic 12-35 for video. Your thoughts?

    Dunno about video, but the 12-35 is a super lens optically.

    Its a verry popular lens for video and does great. Checkout Griffin Hammonds documentary "Sriracha", it was mostly shoot on that combo.

    This was shoot with that lens and the GH4 but it will give you the general idea of its usability,

    The Panasonic 12-35 is one of the most useful lenses for video and maybe my most used lens. Totally recommend it.
