ken Posted February 4, 2015 Share Posted February 4, 2015 I shoot video with a GH2,but it I don't care for it as a stills camera. A friend gave me a nice deal on a 5D classic with a 70-200 f2.8 IS (version 1). I need at least one fairly wide lens for it. It seems my Nikon mount Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 that I use on the GH2 could actually be useful on the 5D with only a little vignetting between 28-35mm. But I can't find an easy way to attach this lens to the 5D without losing control of aperture.Or if I can't make the Sigma work...Is it worth trying the Canon 50mm f/1.8 II for the 5D? I've seen that the focus ring is terrible and it's not very sharp wide open. Any suggestions for a very affordable 50mm or wider lens for the 5D that's at least F1.8? Is it difficult to adapt the aforementioned 50mm Planar or Pancolar to the 5D? how to using 5D mk I for video? Even without live view.
