Which Kit of cinema lenses do you recommend for a Red epic, let's say a  24, 35, 85, 135mm. For less than 20k €?

 

Any suggestions?

Unless you already have other lenses, I'd say a 50mm would be more useful than a 135mm.

 

For that money you should look at a set of Sony PL primes, or perhaps the new Xeen line from Rokinon. If you're looking for older glass, you may be able to find a set of Zeiss Standard or Super Speeds, although they usually come in a 5 lens set, with a 18mm included.

 

Try http://www.kitmondo....--s16/ref442069 for instance.

Agree with Stuart, an 18mm or 50mm far more useful than 135mm.

The series 2 Sony cinealta lenses are a bargain even new and zeiss super speeds or Cooke S4i Mini lenses are great.

Sadly the set Stuart linked to is a Super16 set tho.
