Since it's a m43 mount the DOF is not even close to as shallow as on a full frame. On the Pocket camera the DOF is even greater, so it's very easy to keep things in focus.
I have the Voigtlander f/0.95 lenses and they are great. Even wide open they are very sharp, but f/2.8-f/5 is where it's the sharpest, but I have no problem shooting at f/0.95 because it just lets in so much light and as long as your subject is within five-ten feet then focus is really not a big issue.
I currently have the 17.5mm and 42.5mm lenses, but plan on getting the 25mm and the 10.5mm lens when that one is released, I really love these lenses.
I just got the 17.5mm and the 42.5mm Voigtlander lenses for my pocket camera and I love them. I bought the SLR Magic 12mm lens used for $400 and it's just so soft, I never feel like I can get anything in sharp focus and it's just a weak image, but it'll have to do till the 10.5mm comes out. It's going to be great to have a matching set of these lenses. The build quality is amazing and they are nice and heavy, they feel like tools and not toys. My SLR Magic lens feels really nice too, I just don't care for the image after shooting with the Voigtlander lenses.
I think it's really awesome how affordable all of the tools are becoming. For under $10,000 you can have an amazingly professional setup with all these different ways to shoot your film or whatever you do. RAW, 4K, anamorphic, sliders, and lights make it possible to film a great story in the closest way possible to the original vision.
I just bought two of the Voigtlander f/0.95 lenses for my pocket camera and as soon as the GH4 can shoot RAW I'll add that to my setup.
Such a great time to be getting into this industry.
I've been testing out RAW with my Pocket for the past month and just shot my first project with it and I love it. Of course I used the 95MB/s SanDisk card because that's the only one that really works. I tried using the 80MB/s card and when in RAW mode it didn't even show that there was a card.
But after updating and using the in camera HFS+ format, the 80MB/s cards do seem to record RAW without dropping frames. I haven't done a lot of shooting with it yet to really test it out, but it does seem that the in camera formatting with HFS+ is the way to go to maximize the power of your SD cards. This could really save people a lot of money.
Yeah, I just bought the pocket camera and am diving deep into RAW, I only bought 1 at $495, now I have to buy a second one at $1,000 as well as $1000 worth of SD cards so I can shoot interviews. But damn, it's an amazing camera and I just ordered the Voigtlander f0.95 17/5 and 42.5 lenses. I don't care what else comes out, I love the look of this camera when shot RAW.
