My company (a small creative agency/production house
focusing on doc-style commercial and original productions) is looking to
our assortment of mostly still lenses (Canon EF primes/zooms, Sigma
Art lenses, etc.) to a set of matched, mid-priced cine primes. We need
FF coverage as
we often shoot Sony A7SII as B-cam to an FS7 A-cam.
currently looking at Zeiss CP2, Schneider Xenon, Sigma FF, Canon CN-E,
and maybe the Xeens. Online comparisons and reviews are all over the
board in their quality/consistency of testing. We've tested a couple but would very much
like to hear thoughts from other filmmakers with real world experience
with these lenses. They all seem like good options; does anyone have
thoughts on practical differences between these or similar choices, red
flags in terms of optics/usability, or which you would trust as
workhorse lenses for a range of doc projects? Happy to hear subjective
