    Which lens is better for filmic look in GH1 video?
    Hey, here are my current lenses:

    Fujian Chinese lens 35mm 1.7mm - I like this lens as I will use it for fun creative shooting
    Canon FD 28mm 2.8 - I like this lens since it's wide and I can also shoot up close
    Canon FD 50mm 1.8 - I like this for closer shots
    Konica Hexanon 40mm 1.8 - haven't tested this one out yet

    Is the Canon FD 28mm 2.8, better than the Vivitar 24mm F2.0 ? If I'm shooting a short film, should I keep the brand of lenses the same? or does the Vivitar give the same look as a Canon FD? How about the Konica? I am thinking if I should get the 24mm Vivitar and sell the Canon FD 28mm and sell either the Canon FD 50mm or the Konica 40mm.

    It's a very subjective question. Use what you like the best and what works for your scenes. Some lenses match up very well in post, others do not. I would suggest you do your own test shots with your various lenses and see what looks best to you. Cut the footage together and see how they match up.
