Choosing a lens - which focal length?
I’m a budding filmmaker making my way into making films and am looking for lenses for my camera, which I already bought — a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. My camera is a micro four-thirds camera so I am looking for lenses in that category. I’m already a still shooter so I have a few zooms and a 35mm prime for Nikon F mount and I’ve gotten an adapter for which makes them work on m4/3, but I’d like to buy some lenses specifically for my BPCC camera and would love to get into primes. I’d like your advice on what focal lengths would be good for filmmaking and what lenses I should get specifically. I’m leaning towards voigtlander and the 25mm in paticular because it would make a good “normal” lens but am open to other options. If you were to get a first prime lens for micro four-thirds, which one would you choose? My styles will be mostly on a tripod (cheap stabilization), but I’d love to hear your take.
