Looking to maybe rent 3 signature primes and can't decide on focal length. (1 reply and 3 comments)
Was at a lens test with some others and had a hard time deciding which focal lengths to get.
Sort of a fun desert island conversation.
It's a feature that takes place mostly at an office.
Was thinking 18mm for wide, 47mm for medium, and 95mm for closeups.
What would you guys get?
Assuming we are talking about Super-35 here, I have just bought a set of five - 14, 24, 35, 50 and 85. The middle three seem to be the most useful.
Talking about signature primes, on an LF to boot.
I’m liking the 25mm, 35mm, and 47mm, or maybe the 58mm instead of the 48
I suppose it will depend on what frame format you'll be using (Open Gate, 16:9, 2.39:1).
2:39 I’ve been using Artemis to get a feel for the lenses and it’s surprising how wide I’m comfortable with although I don’t know how the distortion reads on screen from the wider signature primes like the 18mm, and 21mm which would be like a 14mm or 16mm in super35!
