I'll be shooting on 2 perf (most likely an Arricam) and both I and the DoP have agreed that we'll need high speed lenses for the shoot.
Master Primes seem to be the go to lenses when high speed is needed. But they are so damn expensive! It would hurt our budget to go for them.
I'm wondering has anyone used the s5i lenses. Are they cheaper on rental? I know they can look great. I seen them in HUGO and I seen them used on 2 perf for the OLD BOY remake.
If you have used them please share your thoughts - pros and cons.
Thanks in advance.
