Re: wide lenses for Gh4 in a drone

The 12mm f2.0 Olympus lens is very good, supersmall and light but an excellent performer so the light weight might be a benefit on a drone but in case you plan on shooting in 4K you need to consider the extra crop so the 7-14mm f4.0 lens is also excellent tough not as fast or otherwise if you are more on a budget the olympus 9-18mm is also a good alternative.

How do you consider the Lumix 14-140?

I have that one as well, I find it a very sharp lens with good stabilization,it only is not a good low light performer.

14-140 is heavy. 12-35 zoom is lighter and has stabilization as well. 12-32 is tiny and has stabilization but is not as good in low light as the 12-35 or the 12mm olympus mentioned.
