I'm going round and round in circles and would love some opinions!
I've just bought an Arri BL4s and am looking for a lens or two to play around with. On the whole, I will rent lenses if I'm shooting anything serious but would love something to experiment with that doesn't cost the earth - focal length, probably 35 or 50mm and budget would be around the £500 mark.
I've been looking on ebay at older Cooke Speed Panchro's but they normally go for a lot more. I stumbled across the Dog Schidt site and their FF58 seems interesting - basically a reworking of a Helios 44m I think. Another idea would be old Nikon primes - the ais lenses are great for still work.
Any thoughts/opinions - pros/cons would be greatly appreciated!
