      Hello.

       

      Quick question regarding lenses for the Panasonic GH4. Not quite sure which lense to buy for the camera. 

       

      I am planning to use the camera for basic still photos as well as wedding videography and short films. Is there a standard lens that would work for all of these?

       

      Thanks…

      Start with the Panasonic 12-35. It's a lens you can always sell if you don't like it.

      Hi VideoMarker – congrats on your new GH4! It's a great camera for stills, weddings and filmmaking.

       

      If you want an all-purpose lens, I recommend the $780 Panasonic 12-35mm constant f2.8.  This lens performs well in low light, has fast video and still autofocus and was pretty much made for this camera.

       

      Here is what the GH4 can do when combined with the 12-35:

       

      Filmmaking

       

       

       

       

      Wedding

       

       

       

       

      Still Photography

      Hope this is helpful and good luck with your new camera and lens!

      If you're looking for prime lenses you should check out http://www.veydra.com/ We have not used these yet, but we've heard good things about them … especially for short films.
