After a year of being on this forum, I've finally figured out which camera models are taken seriously in the industry, and what's just a deluxe Best Buy camcorder. Cine lens models are my new fascination.

 

I browsed ShotOnWhat but the results haven't been the most consistent, particularly for glass.

 

Let's say Mitchell Amundsen or any other DP who consistently finds themselves on big payrolls is picking a zoom/prime set; what models would they go for?

 

Any legendary lenses of the trade which may not be the most premiere glass of the gala?

 

Figured this could be a great resource for lurkers as well. Thanks.

Well 5 or 10 years ago it was probably Cooke S4s or 5s, Zeiss Master or Ultra Primes, Angenieux Optimo zooms (particularly the 24-290), Hawk anamorphics or various Panavision lenses that were used on most high end features (sometimes in combination). Leica primes and Fujinon zooms have made some inroads since then.

Anamorphic lenses have probably increased in use, with Zeiss, Cooke and Angenieux all recently contributing to the pool of available options.

Also these days vintage lenses get used a lot more - rehoused Cooke Speed Panchros, Bausch and Lomb Super Baltars, Zeiss Super Speeds, rehoused Panavision Supers or Ultras, older Cooke and Angenieux zooms.

I suspect the next flavour du jour will be lenses for the various new digital 65mm format cameras.
