    Need a wider lens...

    Search both lenses on vimeo, like "Panasonic 14mm gh2" and "Rokinon 14mm gh2" (you can replace rokinon with samyang, if you don't find any matches). Look at the images and decide which one of the two you like best. With the panny being faster, the Rokinon has an aperture ring (even clickless with the cine version), which could be an advantage over the panny with video. The rokinon is larger and you have to buy another adapter for it, Nikon or EF to m43. The rokinon also has no filter ring, only a mattebox will be an option for using filters. My two cents; If you're looking for a cinematic like image, go for the rokinon or the SLR magic. If you just want a cheap fast wideangle prime, buy the Panasonic.

    Try the SLR Magic HyperPrime Cine 12mm T/1.6 Lens for Micro Four Thirds. Andrew (Reid) has shot some gr8 footage with it, which you could check out. The Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2.0 is also a gr8 lens (though more expensive).

    16 gb, only 10 minutes of video?

    There is a certainly kind of earnest curiosity, in your questions. I guess, a lot of people on this forum (including me, sometimes), believe that they are too elementary, at times, but, please don't let it bother you. I have worked in a few features, and we had a DoP/ Cinematographer, with about 30 years of experience (or more), who, more than once, missed shadows, and bills on trees, in the frame. Though, he was broad-shouldered enough to admit his folly, the moral of the story is, no one is perfect :) The length of the time left, on the card, depending on the MB rate, you are shooting at.

    A fast wide-angle prime is the SLR Magic Hyperprime 12mm f1.6. It's not that cheap, but very fast and wide. I suppose you already have the kitlens? It starts at 14mm, so if that's wide enough for you and you just need a faster lens, the panny 14mm f2.5 will suit you fine.

    get the panasonic 14mm f2.5, that is the cheapest wide lens available for the gh2. Besides you might want to consider the canon fd 35mm f2 and the 85mm 1.8.

    The hack is 3rd party (as in, not made by Panasonic) software that you can download and install on your GH2 for different settings. It allows shooting at higher bit-rates, which basically means you'll have video that is more open to colour correction, and that holds more information in the shadows, etc. The downside is that you can hold less video on your memory card. You can zoom 2.6x on the 20mm and all your other lenses by using the GH2's 'ex-tele' mode. This is different from an optical zoom (where you change the mm of your lens), but the quality is very good and it's worth using in good lighting conditions.

    The Panasonic GH3 is here

    [quote name='KahL' timestamp='1347939300' post='18413'] After seeing the prototype first shots ungraded [url="https://vimeo.com/49558910"]https://vimeo.com/49558910[/url], NOW I am convinced. Highlights SEEM on a Canon level finally so far, though I want to see some night time shots w/ street lamps. But, so far looks great. And skin tones seem on point too. Definitely impressed so far. Take my money! [/quote] that's funny because when I saw this footage my reaction was were the hell is the high dynmic range? Highlights and shadows are burned out and the footage is too contrasted, dslr like. Looks no better than the gh2 to me but I know I must not make a judgement on a single video, so I am not, and waiting for more footage.
