iR3jected Posted August 20, 2016 Share Posted August 20, 2016 Hello fellow filmmakers, I am feeling confused and overwhelmed by the information there is out on vintage lenses and I have spend so much time my head is feeling to explode. I've come to the part where I need your help. I am looking to build my first lens kit for cinematography (and a little bit photography) on my apsc sized sensor camera, mainly for vimeo style shorts. The focal length I am currently searching for are 35mm, 50mm, 85mm but don't feel strictly to these if you have a great lens tell me. So here is the criteria I looking for (2.8 and faster): sharpness (if possible right from wide open, as much as the limitations following allow) good color renderition bokeh (good bokeh is a question of taste I know) price (below 130€, cheaper price to performance beasts are much appreciated) (5. radioactive lenses should be marked as such, please ) If you know what you are talking about I would greatly welcome you if you could spend the time and post a top 3 of lenses to look for for each of the categories above. Sorry for taking your time, I know there are a lot of threads around this online, I have read many, but I came to the point where I just need the help of some smart people. Thanks for your time. Have a great day. Your expertise is much appreciated. Jan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
