Hello everybody, I have a GH4 and I've recently rented several lenses Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG Nikon mount used on speedbooster on my GH4 Sigma 18-35 1.8 Nikon mount used on speedbooster on my GH4 Veydra 16 mm MFT native mount Rokinon 24 mm cine lens, Nikon mount used on Speedbooster on GH4 I understand the point of cine lenses, such as the veydra and the rokinon as far as follow focus is concerned. They do behave like true cine lenses. But unfortunately after an intensive 3 day testing, I can testify that the two Sigmas are superior in image quality, in any aspect of image quality, to the Veydra and the Rokinon. So for somebody who simply can't buy a set of cine lenses at $ 3000 per lens, if I'm going to spend less than $ 1000 per lens I simply can't justify to by a Veydra or a Rokinon after discovering how amazing the Sigmas are! Sure, they don't have a focus system that allow the hook up of a follow focus system,but at my level in my game and finance I must go for the better image quality and just adapt as far as focus. Do you agree with me that the quality of the image is much more important that how the lenses focus? I must say that it's very easy to manually focus with the two Sigmas, you just have to do it by hand and it doesn't look professional but I simply can't give up the quality I've seen in the Sigma 20 mm 1.4 for a lesser lens that would have a more "cine" look. Any suggestions anybody? Thanks Philippe
I'm not sure if this topic has been covered before but I am looking at getting a very good zoom lens for use on a Blackmagic Ursa Mini. I have heard that the Cooke 18-100 is an amazing zoom (PL mount of course) but I am wondering what are the best zooms for cinema under $6k US. I know a lot of people just use stills glass but isn't there better options out there? Are the Zeiss Contax zooms any good? What other options are there? And is it actually worth paying over $10k for a zoom lens when you can pick up a Zeiss Contax for under $1k. Any information would be helpful!
