I going to shot my first full-lenght feature this summer and after looking at some test and with our very low budget (less than $1,000,000) this camera seems like the best option.
When I compare the footage to both canon 5d and Red one it seems to have a much better dynamic range and the fast movements dont get as distorted as with 5d.
I am going to try to do as many tests as possible with lenses but since the very low budget I will have a hard time to do it as extensive as I would have liked to. So any tips on a solid set of lenses that will render sharp images with similar characteristics.
All help is really appreciated.

There are loads of good lenses for Nikons. Lots of cheap manual focus/aperture lenses with nice, smooth focus-barrels. Check out this page for a reference: http://www.naturfoto...com/index2.html

Oh, and click the "lenses" link on the left, of course.
