Hi everyone,

I've got a Cooke 10.8-60mm Zoom for my NPR and am looking to augment it with some longer zooms. Whilst not having the money for any long cine zooms, I just wanted to ask if any one knew of any good 35mm stills zooms Canon or Nikon that are of good optical quality to work on film.

Recomendations are appreciated!!!

Thanks,
Steve

The two main questions to ask yourself at this point are: what is your targeted zoom range and how fast you want the lens to be? That should narrow it down.

Further information would include, zooms from 35mm onwards, speed is not a particular issue as I only intend to utilise the lens for exterior daylight work, so f3.5-f4 is acceptable.
