Ok so I am getting the Gh2 with the 20mm pancake as my first lens.. but I want a less sharpe, more vintage/cinematic looking lens for shooting short films and such.. I have heard and been recommended a lot on these two lens, so which is better for me? (I know thats subjective, but if I was trying to get the wes anderson style feel to my films..)

Would these be wide angle lenses? because I know he usually uses a lot of wide angle, quick pan shots.


and I am open for other options in these price ranges... Thanks!

Those would be good lenses to go with. Again, it's subjective based on the look. Have you looked into Nikon lenses? Those are also often recommended.

Those lenses would also not be wide angle. They would be more of a telephoto length based on the GH2's 2X crop. Or you might be able to make it work based on camera placement. I shot with a 35mm (70mm in m43) at a further distance and was very happy with the results. Very cinematic look.
