GH4 Lens Package for $2000 Suggestions
I'm picking up a GH4 soon and I'm starting to research lens options. My budget for lenses right now is $2000 and I'm getting kind of overwhelmed with the amount of options so I'm here looking for suggestions.
I'm looking Rokinons and some native Panasonic lenses. If possible I would like to avoid a Speedbooster until I have more money. Otherwise I might buy one of those bargain speedboosters until I can afford the upgrade. It's just that getting the speedbooster would take a big bite out of my budget.
I'm shooting video, and mainly documentary stuff, but some commercial and narrative stuff too. What I'd like is 1-2 decent primes and 1 or 2 zoom lenses, preferably one with image stabilization. I have a pretty steady hand, even without IS, but I do like to have at least one IS in my kit.
I'm coming from using a Canon 6D with cheap lenses so I'm used to making cheap work. I usually have a 30mm 1.4, a 2.8 zoom, and a cheapo 3.5-5 17-135 zoom lenses. I just need as must versatility as possible within my 2K budget.
I appreciate any help you guys might offer, I'm totally lost.
