Hi all,

 

I'm going to be shooting a short film in the very near future on the Sony FS5. The Camera only comes with a kit lens, so I was wondering whether it was worth sourcing another lens to work with. 

 

I know friend's have pretty pricey Canon lenses, but I'm unsure whether these would be better or worse.

 

The film is going to be shot mostly outside on location, shots of buildings and streets etc. 

 

If anyone has ideas, let me know. Thanks.
