I've ordered the new Sony A7Rii. I am a Director/DOP and have upgraded from the 60D...

 

Looking to spend up to £2,000 on some lenses. 

 

Will be shooting in 4K also.

 

I have been looking at the Samyang/Rokinon Cine Lenses. Will they still hold up at 4K?

 

Any suggestions????

 

Am veering towards primes too. 

 

Another thing I am considering is getting a 24mm and then a 50mm prime. As with the A7Rii you can change from full frame to super 35mm crop - it will therefor make a 24mm be 36 (ish) mm, and the 50mm a 75 (ish) mm.

 

Would be great to have any suggestions / recommendations?????

 

Thanks!

I've used Rokinon 135mm Cine DS lens on the Super35 global shutter sensor of the Blackmagic 4K production camera as well as the full frame sensor of a Canon 5D Mk II.  This was an EF mount.

As for Sony E-mount, I've used same EF lens mounted on a Metabones Speed Booster ULTRA to a Super35 CMOS sensor of the FS-700.

I cannot confirm that the e-mount version of the Cine DS lens would work in S35 or full-frame, but the EF version works excellent.  If in doubt, rent, experiment, then buy.

in addition, the Sony FS700 recorded to 4K on an Oddesey 7Q monitor-recorder.
