was this the one u were referring to?
I was thinking of the sony 35mm f2.8 it seems small and good originally. But thinking of saving some money hoping to get something in the $200-350 range.
originally I was thinking of this
with a cheap adapter
$100 or so ?
Or i can see if i can get a tripod mount ring and see if i can attach it to the stablizer.
There are lots of cheaper options for video even FF 35mm 4K. My favourites are Minolta MD/MC lenses. I would start with the 55 f/1.7 that Phillip also reviews. You could add to that the 35 f/1.8 (get the latest MD version with the 49mm ring), and an MD 85 f/1.7. All of these are inexpensive and good performers. If you want to really get into video think about getting and using a follow focus and de click the aperture of the lens so you can change exposure while shooting. It costs about $200 per lens to get them set up properly for video, but it will be worth it if you stretch what you are doing. Great other Minolta lenses to get are the MD 28 f/2 (again the latest with the 49mm filter) and the lovely 135 f/2 (this costs a bit more but is a very good lens). That would give you a very good 5 lens kit for video all with apertures between f/1.7 and f/2. If you can expand you budget a bit other good options are a set of Leica R lenses or a set of Zeiss Contax/Yashica mount lenses, but they would be more money. If the budget can go higher yet, the Loxia lenses are a superb option and designed for both the Sony A7 series cameras and video,
