Comment below with your fav lens!
will these lenses suit a short film shot in 4.3 aspect ratio sorry if stupid question
Have you experienced the 35-100 2.8? That lens seems amazing for the price. A sony version would be 2k
Will these work with the g7
Hiii!! Do you use this lense for Vlogging? I mean: You carring your camera on your hand/pod and recording yourself :)
Because i'm thinking on a lense like this one, with stabilization for that porpose (among all others haha). Thaaaaks! :)
The bridge shot is nice, but you gotta ditch the frames! 👍👍
My fav. for m4/3 is the Oly 12-40 f 2.8 pro. It has a manual focus clutch and is very sharp wide open. Recently I shot at 1/25 s. at 40 mm handheld. Oly ibis is amazing.
Does the dual is work with Olympus camera as well?
How's the focus ring? It's hard about focus changing or fluid?
I'm really debating between this lens and the 14-140mm.

Hi Ben. I keep coming back to your videos. Great stuff. Thank you! I just subscribed and rang the bell.
Would you recommend the Panasonic 12-35 f2.8 to get at least the same sharpness (or better) as my Leica 100-400 and get me a greater depth of field for butterfly photos (without going macro and losing portrait and video capability) and to also improve my landscapes as well, or have I been too spoiled with my Leica?
I have a G9 with a Leica 100-400mm lens for birding. Great photos at all focal lengths including full zoom. I Love it! But I need a deeper depth of field for butterflies and landscapes; to lessen the bokeh and achieve the same or better sharpness (ie. to control the bokeh from stealing away deep focus). My 100-400 gets great sharpness, but I have trouble getting focused butterflies entire bodies and wingspans in frame, even with manual focus and peaking, and they don't sit around too long. I change to a smaller aperture on my 100-400 to get a greater depth of field, but even at f22 more depth of field just seems to never show up.
I need at least one more great lens and I am very particular not to fall into a rabbit hole spending money chasing lenses to find the best one I need. Thats why I am watching mega YouTube videos like I did when choosing my Leica, LOL.
Thank you in advance!
i like you bro, we need people like you ;)
It an amazing lens, it’s the only one I have for MF3, could have almost used this range as an only lens, in the film days for assignments.
i like your glasses ahahaha
I going to buy a Lumix G7, and I want a extra lens, which one you recommend for me (Portrait)
Hi Ben, I have the Lumix GX85 and it comes with the kit lens, 12-32, f-3.5-5.6. It is somehow the same as my kit lens or not? Thanks man, I subscribed to your channel. :)
what about the 12-40 f2.8?
I want this!!! But can it be it have a ghosting problem??? 4:40 left in the middle, in the dark. Do you use a filter???
Ben! Can you use this lens even with the panasonic lumix gx800? I have never seen anyone using it on those small cameras.
Thanks for this review! We started making YouTube videos for fun and for now we have the Panasonic G7 as our starter camera. I really want a great lens but its overwhelming. I like being able to have a lot in the frame with out the camera feeling like its a mile a way while shooting. I am watching every YouTube video out there on lenses. If you have any recommendations I am ways open! Thanks for lunch a great video
i have a problem with the gh5 video file, my PC is very fast but still i can't preview the 4k footage from the camera
This lens is the best for 4/3 filmmaking. It is not about the bokeh, its about composition. You dont see alot of bokeh in Hollywood and independant movies.
I'm stuck between this lens and the 12-60mm Leica for as my GH5 as my main lens for filmmaking. Recommendation? Thanks in advance.
Lol oh and depth of field. Yes
Hi, Thanks for the tip. Im currently using the Lumix Gx8 right now using that lens (12-33mm). i really like taking cinematic videos, what can you suggest? do i have to stick with 12-33mm lens to pair it with my go pro or purchase 1 more? thanks
thanks for this!!
I've got a used lense now - great! All you recommended is true ...
is this good for doing short films ? I took it for my GH4 but my friend told me I should ve taken the 18-55 :(
Hi Brennan, thanks for your video. I heard that you have the Tamron 24-70mm/ F 2.8. I currently do photography with a Nikon D750 combined with the Tamron 24-70mm. I would like to buy the GH5 in order to do more videos. I was wondering if you think that GH5 + megabones + Tamron 24-70mm would be compatible and if so, if it would give a better cinematic effect than the Lumix 12-35mm lens..? Many thanks for your advice! Apo
I cracked up when he said “Our bokeh balls are pretty small.” Haha. Funniest comment I ever heard for a camera/lens review.
1:28 you wear contacts
Hi, thank you for sharing this video. I recently just bought the Panasonic G85 and I’m loving it. I’m new to photography and videography, and I’m using the camera to take photos for Instagram, aswell as make videos for my new YouTube channel. My kit lens is the 14-42. It’s good- but I’m hoping to upgrade the lens for a better one for vlogging. What would be the next lens down in price that you would recommend after this lens in this video...??? Something that is wider, and also with more range/ depth of field...??Please any help would be great. Thank you I hope to hear from you soon. Your video was so informative and helpful and easy to understand 🙏🧘🏽♀️🌺🌴🤸🏽♀️🕉🤗
I recently bought the ef 70 200mm and I plan on getting the 12-35 Panasonic Lens,I also have a youngnuo 5omm to do close ups,so if you were shooting a comedy and a drama so what kind of shots would you use these 2 lens for, I know the ef is zoom lens but it also looks good up close, what shots would do with each lens I'm just checking for advice
why do people hate so much???? thank you for the info dude.
I noticed the vibration.
Nice review! Some very good info!
This is exactly what I was looking for in a review, thanks a lot for the hand video shot!!!
Since when did shallow depth of field equate to cinematic? You clearly dont watch the same blockbuster films that I do. You dont see this weirdness on TV channels but I guess they spend more on lighting than anybody else. Separating picture elelements is about image sharpness, colour, texture and composition less about depth of field - just saying ;-)
I see you live in Sonoma County. @mad3lin3m
Does this lens keep the aperture at 2.8 when you are at 35mm? Thanks for the video!
Nice review mate. In the video, is the lens attached to a Panasonic GX80 ?
Great review Damian, some really great shots from this setup need to get my hands on this lens
When I used to shoot LUMIX I had this one with the 25mm f1.7, 42.5 f1.7 and the Mark I of this lens. That was my professional kit and I love it. But alas, I moved over to Fujifilm and I'm gonna stay there for a while. I'm curious as to how this Mark II 12-35mm renders black and whites? Did you get a chance to shoot Monochrome with this lens, Damian? If so, what were your thoughts in comparison to shooting black and white on the Fujifilm 16-55mm f2.8?
nice review as always - yes a very nice little lens - for pro work with m43. one has to own the Lumix 42.5 F1.8 with IS - the Oly equivalent is lots more money but the little Oly 42.5 F1.8 also nice but no IS - also the 25mm F1.4 Lumix is super
Like your shirt
thanks! these things I wanted to know!
I like how positive you are.
Thanks for the review! Your kit link is not working, just a heads up if you use that for monetization!
Just changed my video setup from camcorder to DSLR GH4. Now finding that lenses are super expensive. It broke my budget just to get the camera body. Need the 12-35/F2.8 for my video. Anyone willing to donate one??
Hey Nate. FYI - https://www.kit.com/natesfilms17/nate-s-filmmaking-youtube-gear "Page not found"
Hi! I think the dual IS works with your version too, not just the mark II.
I'm gonna buy Panasonic Lumix g9. I'm not sure which lens to splash on. I'm hearing the 12-35 doesn't offer the shallow depth of field you'd like with it being a four thirds camera. Gonna be using it mainly for video and I'm upgrading from an rx100iv, admittedly with little knowledge. Any help?
Bruh the tree , your hand the dog so vivid
I have the 12-60mm f2.8 Pana-Leica lens. It's fantastic. I shot a feature film with it and the GH5 last year. I've heard people have had issues with the 12-35mm lens. So, I'm glad to have the 12-60mm.
Is there any difference between the newer version of the lens and the older version?
That’s really not a bad price for a 24-70 equivalent with a constant 2.8. One lens and done??? For most I would say yes.
This is on my wishlist! Awesome review.... we'll see if I end up pulling the trigger. Using it on a Moza Aircross so we will see.
Hi Nate, you mentioned the "kit" lens a few times... what lens is that ? The only lens that comes with the GH5 body today is the 12-35 mm ( version 2 ) or the 12-60 mm. Hopefully you can tell me what lens came with your "kit" when you bought this ( and yup, I realize this video was made in 2017 ) so thank you, I appreciate it Nate !
Does it have power zoom? Or only manual.
Is there a speedbooster for this lens to use with the G85?
Does this lense work on a gh4
What about this lens or the Sigma 18-35mm? https://youtu.be/xjXq-f1iWYY
You seem like a really cool guy! Thanks for the review :)
