What budget cine prime lenses have you used and loved?
I will be investing in a cine lens kit (probably 24,35, and 85mm) soon for my GH4, with a budget of around $1k-1.3k. I haven't yet decided if I'm going to try to keep it in line with the MFT mount, or go with a speedbooster and EF mount.
Firstly, which focal lengths would you recommend as absolutely necessary? Second, should I stick with the MFT mount, or grab a speedbooster and EF mount (I'm probably going to get a speedbooster no matter what, so that doesn't factor into my budget)? Lastly, which affordable cine primes have you used that you like? I know that Voigtlanders are great, but are a little out of my price range. I've heard good things about SLR Magic and Rokinon, but have never used them.
