C100 wide angle prime lens

Recommended Posts

Hello All

Would appreciate your advice on a fast wide angle prime lens for shooting video with the Canon C100's super 35 CMOS sensor. I don't want to go so wide it becomes a fisheye. I already own the a Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM Zoom lens, but I want something faster. I love my Samyang 35mm T1.5 prime lens (great value for money) and would like a fast wide which is also great value for money. I've been looking at Samyang 12mm, 14mm and 16mm lenses as a possible purchase. I would ideally like to go for the 12mm to give myself the greatest field of vision, but what's on offer either seems to be called a fisheye for the EF mount (can I use this on my Super 35 sensor without it creating a fisheye effect??) or there's a nice cine lens, but this is for an APS-C crop sensor for Canon M. 

Could really do with some advice from someone with more knowledge and experience than me.

Many thanks

@Fred14what about this one? Rokinon 10mm f2.8. Only downside is I don't think it will accept filters. A lot of people might also recommend the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8, but personally I've just never been much of a fan of that lens, always seemed soft to me. Great closed-down star shape though. Here's the link to the Rokinon, Good luck!

Yeah I would look k at the Tokina 11-16 2.8. Personally I like the lens and found mine very sharp (it was V1 - i seem to recall V2 is softer).  Also they  now offer an 11-20mm 2.8. They also do a 14-20mm f/2.0 but it’s pricey. All well built, fast lenses.

Thanks all of you, your thoughts are much appreciated.

If anyone else has any views, please let me know as I'm keen to make a purchase fairly soon.

Thanks again!
