First Cinema Lens Investment

edited September 2019 in Filmmaking

Hello all,

I’m about to invest in my first cinema glass purchase. I’ve been using an old Nikon 35mm lens set for quite a long time now. I love the look and character of them but I just want to get something a little more pro now that I’ve gone freelance and I’m doing more client work.

I’ve been renting a bunch of different glass recently and at my old full time gig we had both Sigma cine zooms — which I loved. I’ve been leaning towards those but I’m curious if anyone has any thoughts on going the prime route with the full frame sigmas.

Also curious if anyone has experience with another set within that price range. The zooms are about 8k for the pair and the full frame primes are around 4-5k per lens.

Thanks so much!
