Hi,

Can someone tell me what would be good fairly inexpensive
still lenses from Canon or Nikon to use that could fit on an Arri 2C that has a B mount and Standard mount?

I know I'd need an adapter.

Thanks guys.

Assuming you'll want infinity focus, and not just be restricted to macro, you probably won't be able to use either of those lenses in standard focal lengths on an Arri with B or standard mounts. Some telephotos and long zooms have been converted to B-mount. You can, however, have a Nikon front put on a 2C. This would probably be your best bet.
