Hello guys,

 

I'm music video clipmaker (beginner). I like k-pop MVs. I want to shoot my MVs like that. I've got Red One MX camera and Zeiss 35mm CP2 superspeed t1.5 lens only. Which lens (mm) do you recomment to buy?

 

 

 

 

(sorry, I don't know english very well)

at least 2 lenses: something wide from 16 to 25mm range, and one longer lens, maybe 65 75 or 85. since you are using CP2:s you could also use (ZE, ZF) still lenses if changing the camera mount, but it would be more practical to stick on cp:s because of the better mechanics and easier handling. Exact focal lengths are a matter of taste, but considering you already have one lens from CP2 series I think it's easier to use same series lenses to expand your inventory.

 

maybe 85mm T1.5 CP2 super speed and 21mm T2.9 CP2 ? If you need more speed then 20mm T1.9 Ultra Prime might be better solution than 21 CP2, and if you need shorter tele than 85 then maybe UP 65/1.9 might be an option.

Zooms are also an option

 

If something under 21 is needed for some shoots you can rent it easily ( 8 / 10 / 12 / 14 / 16 / 18mm)

The first frame looks like 65-85mm. The second one about 135-200mm. The third one maybe 14mm. Basically for music videos of this type you should probably have a super wide lens that is rectilinear (no distortion) for group shots and a telephoto or super telephoto lens for beauty close ups. Telephoto zooms would give you more adjustability when you have to quickly reframe for a looser two shot to an extreme close up.
