Your favorite lenses for 7D video?
Posted 04 April 2012 - 11:23 PM
I tried a little bit of video with my Tokina 10-17, but I find the rounded corners to be distracting while panning (esspecially at 10mm), I guess a rectilinear lens would be better.
So lets hear it, what is your experience, and of course, your personal favorites for DSLR video?

I have worked as an unpaid reviewer for the editing websites since 2002. Most all hardware and software is sent to me free of charge, however, in no way am I obligated to provide either positive or negative evaluations. Any suggestions I make regarding products are a result of my own, completely, personal opinions and experiences with said products.

I've not done a lot of macro on the 7d but I have used the ef 100mm 2.8 which was great and the ef-s60mm also has good reviews, although I've not used it. For macro I really do miss the zoom ability of a camcorder. My V1 had a 20x zoom lens with an additional 10x digital extender. Compare that to using a 100mm prime and there is a world of difference.
