Lenses We Use & Recommend
Usually forgotten when compared to the fancy new cameras that come out each year, a lens has a major impact on the quality of the image you record. Also, they don't lose their financial value nearly as much as cameras do, so invest in some quality glass is an investment you can always recoup later if you need to. Here are the lenses we use to film our videos.
This is the one lens on this page that I haven't owned myself, but have rented a bunch for photos and video. There are more expensive 2.8 versions, with image stabilization, that are better quality glass, but they start to get pretty heavy to travel with and use.
With two focus settings (full or partial ranges), this is really versatile and better than the 55-250mm above, but much bulkier and you stand out a bunch.
