c100 II/80D Combo Lens choices


Recommended Posts

It just went down a few thousands during the summer! Even if it goes down, it will be more than twice the price for a long long time..

I honestly would prefer a C100markIII instead, with similar to the XC15 files, but a C100 nevertheless. C300 is a different animal than the 100 and you would need an upgrade to everything you own (tripods, monopods, sliders etc) to tame it sufficiently. We have one in the production company I work; most of the times I go with the C100ii.

You always have to consider the fact that the camera that you use now, is better than the one you haven't, or can't get!

Just pulled the trigger!  Nervous/excited to see how I like the c100 II.  I ordered it with the 24-105 f4, I already have a Tamron 17-50 2.8 and figured these two lenses were a good start.  I can then decide if I need to sell the zooms for a faster zoom or just add 2-3 primes (24, 50, 85)


Are there any videos, blogs, articles I should read to get a head start on how to use this new weapon!?

Follow-up:  I've stumbled upon videos, write-ups, posts on the X-T2.  I am curious why this is not spoken about more?  the video image seems to blow away the a7r/s II and gh4 in 4K...the colors rival the 5d IV.  


How's the ISO performance in low light for both photo and video?  I'd like a main stills cam and a b-cam for the c100 II?  I'd love to be able to do timelapses and photograghy/video with at least 6400 iso in low light with some fine grain and great images (clearly not an a7s II rival but those colors are horrendous to me).
