I am really curious if anyone has already tried the voigtlaender f0.95 25mm mft lens on this camera.
This seems like the first lens I would buy for this baby.

The Panasonic's 2X crop factor turns an awesome 14mm mega-wide lens on a full frame camera into a more pedestrian 28mm.

Re: Interested in the AF100

I would go with the following package:

AF100
Rails, FF, Matte Box, lens support (your preference)

Lenses
Zuiko 14-35 f2 ($2000-$2500)
Zuiko 35-100 f2 ($2000-$2500)
Voightlander 25mm f0.95 ($899)

Optional
Ninja, Ki Pro Mini, or Nano ($899-$4000)

Monitor
We don't even use the one we have because the on board EVF and LCD are more than good enough.

If you need something really wide you can pick up the Panasonic 7-14 as well. But we have been shooting with the AF for a while now and have never needed anything wider than 14mm.

Thanks Andrew and everyone else for the great info.

Andrew - are the "Rails, FF, Matte Box, lens support (your preference)" expensive?
