What is your favourite lens/lens set that you have ever used for a production? What makes it your favourite?
-Roll-off of focus
-Spherical or anamorphic
-Distortion free optics
Is it a zoom lens? Ridley Scott's favourite lens appears to be the Angenieux 24-290 T2.8. What about for different lens mounts? B4, PL, PV etc.
As a sidebar question, what are your thoughts on shooting with lenses? Do you limit your palette? Do you shoot with a consistent stop? Is your personal taste for wider or telephoto lenses?
It'd be interesting to hear differing views and rationale for them.
As always, thanks to those who read and reply.
