Excerpt: Recently I purchased a Panasonic GH4, mostly for video (to replace a Sony FS100). I have a full range of Nikkor lenses and will be using them with a Speed Booster, and plan to get the set of fast Voigtlander MFT lenses.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The Lumix G X 12-35 is a fantastic lens. I am an old school, film photographer who used to favor fast primes (24mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 80mm). I bought this lens for a Lumix GH4 to use primarily for video. I am blown away by its performance: sharp, good contrast, lightning fast autofocus (for stills).
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Summary: I purchased this lens because I wanted the perfect GH4 lens for video and photo. I primarily use the GH4 for video but this 12-35mm lens is perfectly well-suited for snapping still photos too! I can carry this and the GH4 in my pack and it's not too heavy or bulky.
Summary: I bought this lens after owning the Panasonic 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 and 45-200mm f/4-5.6 because it is weather sealed and the 12mm wide-angle for landscape shooting. For me, the current "reduced" cost of close to $900 is well worth the money.
it's the best. I use it more than any other lens ...

Summary: There's a reason this lens is so expensive, it's the best. I use it more than any other lens I own. It's perfect for just about every video situation, and even though I like a prime lens better for stills, this gets the job done. It focuses so quickly and silently. It's really just incredible.
Excerpt: I shoot a lot of video interviews, talking heads, etc., among other things such as still product photography. This is an excellent general purpose lens for Panasonic cameras such as the AF100, GH3 and GH4.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
