Panasonic 12-35 2.8 V1 & v2 vs Olympus 12-40 2.8 Non-IS | Best Micro 4/3 General Purpose Lens?
If you are a micro for third format camera owner and own something like a GH4 or the GH5, or EM1ii, then you're probably going to want a general purpose video lens.
These are my top three picks and also the differences between each of them depending on what camera you're using, as well as what purposes.
GH5 Owners, go with the V2
EM1ii Owners, go with the Olympus, which is my favorite of the 3 for quality
Panasonic IS Lenses don't play well on the EM1ii
V1 is a high quality, low cost IS solution for the GH4 and other non IS (non- IBIS Olympus) bodies.
