Hi there, i am new on here and wondering if i might get some advice. I have a Canon 5D Mark 2 which i use to shoot on sometimes. At the moment i am just using the lens that comes with the camera but i would like to buy a long lens for the camera and wondered if anyone has any great advice as to what to get?

If you're doing video work, Rokinon makes some lenses specifically for video which seem to be nice and rage these days. They go up to an 85mm. Beyond that, just look into some Canon long primes. Zooms are nice and all; but Primes are better.

Take a look at Samyang. Currently don't own any lenses from them, but according to some reviews those are good budget lenses.

They have vdslr 85mm T1.5 and some longer photo lenses..

 

Cheers
