Perfect Lens for the Ronin ?

So I have a Ursa Mini 4k EF and a Ronin , I love the look of a steady shot and I don't have any means of wirelessly pulling focus. Currnetlying using the 16-35mm 2.8 but I feel like its really easy to walk out of focus in some cases. Is there a better lens for the job to avoid pulling focus ?

A gimbal doesn't care about lenses ;-)
Depth of field depends mostly on your aperture (and focal length). At what f-stop do you shoot?

Aperture 16mm?

Do you mean aperture or focal length?
If you mean focal length: it always depends on the camera and its sensor size AND the required effect.

Just shoot at F/8 and that should help some.

Just stop down your lens and you should be good to go.

I currently use a ronin m paired with an a7s and two c/y zeiss lenses: 28mm and 35-70mm. Although they are pretty nice, I'm getting more and more tired of having to constantly change focal length thus having to re-balance the rig. I'll probably get a canon 24-105 which I think doesn't changes its size when changing the focal length. Also, I won't be going wider than f.4.
