Wanted to get some thoughts on what kind of zoom lenses people would recommend for an owner operator. I've got an Arri Amira, and these days prices on S35 zooms seem to be going down quite a bit. I've seen both Optimo DPs and Arri Alura LWZs go for well under 10k USD per lens. Some lenses even down to 7-8k. I use the Sigma 18-35 and 50-100 stills lenses with focus gears on right now, but I would really like to get a set of zooms that cover a better range and are more solid. The Sigmas are fine, but I don't want to spend the money on the cine versions as I will keep the still version of these for certain jobs. I've been eyeballing a couple of options: - Arri Alura LWZ 15.5-45 and 30-80 - Angenieux Optimo DP 16-42 and 30-80 I guess the Canon cine zooms are on the table as well, but I have never used the myself. It's a bit hard finding examples and documentation on people using these, any insight if welcome. Thanks!
