Zeiss primes or Cannon L series.

 

 

 

I'd go with Zeiss. Here's a raw snippet from a portrait series that I'm currently working on -- and yes, even if I have a few L glass as well, I mostly end up using my Zeiss lenses. Notice the nice DOF:

I'd seriously consider spending money on a different camera altogether (rental). Every festival's short or student film is now shot on a Canon DSLR with shallow DoF and it's boring as hell.

So why not then just bump the aperture on your 5D..?

if you're really low on money you can get contax yashica manual lenses (50 1.4; 28 2.8) add a $15 adaptor and your DOP will still think you are cool.

 

I got a 50mm 1.4 for $300.
