Filming HD video EP-1 with 35-100 mm F2 ?

I have voluntered to help a group of Taiko drummers mid June
They want some still photos of the group for which I will use my E-30.
But the sound of their Taiko drums is really really awesome, so I came up with the thought:

Is it possible to use the EP-1 with my F2 35-100 mm Lens ?
(I already have the adapter and a fast SD card).

I guess that using a tripod, Manual focus and small aperture (9 to 13 depending on light) should produce good sharp video.

My concerns are:

1.Are there really major advantages using a SHG 4/3 lens instead of micro 4/3
kit lenses when shooting video? and I am not (yet) willing to buy a new micro 4/3 mark II lens with MSC )

2.Is the built-in microphone up to the task ? an extermal microphone would be preferable, but I don't own an EP-2

My only experience with EP-1 video shooting is from a party where 3 extremely amusing actors served the meals,
Both video and sound came out nicely.

Does anyone here on the board shoot videos with an EP-1 and SHG lenses ?
and do you have any good advice
