Bmpcc: lenses for a start

Hi everyone,

I'm searching for some lenses for interviews, talking-heads, music videos and plot. Now, I'm thinking about to sets:
First: Panasonic 12-35mm 2.8 and cheap cctv lens 35mm 1.7
Second: Nikon speedboster with Tamron 17-50mm 2.8
What do you think, which option is better?

I think your best bet would be the wider lens first which would be the Panasonic 12-35mm you cant lose with that. Trust me! if you can cop the Vintage 35mm 1.7 lens then get that too.

Speedbooster is not necessary, there are plenty brilliant m4/3 lenses for a kit. Why not go into a store and play with the lenses before you buy. If you learn to shoot on a Zoom, you will be a different shooter to one who uses primes. You are forced to move the camera with a prime, and in my opinion, don't become as lazy.
