Have any of you tried any other lens options on the X5? Of course an M4:3 mount lens but was wondering if we are completely tied to the three that are currently available? Was looking to go a bit wider than 12mm. Anyone do any experiments? Thanks in advance!

The Olympus is a really amazing lens on the X5. Use film mode, manual ex and FCPX with just some color correction and you will be surprised. An even beter look together with: http://www.hoyafilter.com/hoya/p ... taticfilters/cirpl/  (46mm)
Happy filming.

Thanks guys. I actually am flying the Variable ND on my X5 and love it! Truly a great add and the weight is the same as the standard hood and empty ring that came with the lens. I'm just wanted to get a bit more along the lines of an 9mm fixed lens. I did find one and it's cheap. May test it out and see if it works well. Thoughts? Glass and structure probably not the greatest but worth testing. Mostly for interior shots and some lower level capturing: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/pr ... 5_FISHEYE_LENS.html
