Just wondering what lens is best suited for INDOOR shots and recording? That is one which isn't overly zoomed and doesn't suffer fisheye much. Also could you guys consider selling a barebones version of this camera without ANY lens options for those of us with our own lenses?
Both of our lens will be suitable for indoor use. One is a standard zoom lens, and the other is a fixed lens designed for shooting portraits. Neither one is overly zoomed and neither has a fisheye effect.
