Canon 28-135mm ?
I currently have a t2i with a canon 50mm and a tamron 17-50 and I'm looking for for something in the 50-200mm and I found the canon 28-135 and i'm not too sure what to think about it. Is there something in that range that isn't 1000$ and still produce a sharp video quality ?
70-200 f/4. I'd say it's canons best lens for the money. you'll find them for about $550 I think.
Thanks I'll look for these
Oh wait, if you're doing video only you might do just as well with something cheaper, hopefully someone else will comment
I think there are some nice 135mm primes, which is pretty long on a crop. Check the vintage glass thread for guidance.

I'm thinking about getting a rokinon 85mm 1.4 prime. From what I have researched it looks super sharp and being able to shoot at 1.4 is definitely a bonus. Guessing your not interested in primes, but I think this lens is a super good deal and can be bought for around $250.

This made me imagine Dollo pounding some fine swedish ass with his goggles on backwards, shouting "arf arf!" every thrust
85mm 1.4 on a crop, the depth of field is going to be so shallow you will hardly be able to shoot anything, especially up close, you're aware of that right?
I'm sure the 70-200 f4 is a great lens, I love using the f2.8 version, it is great, and I trust that the f4 is comparable. However, vintage glass can be had much cheaper, and is also very good. I picked up a pentax takumar 200mm f3.5 for $30. I love it, and the focus ring is much better for video. I would suggest looking for something like an 85, 135, and 200 combo. You could also look at older zooms, I think some people like the old nikon 70-200's
The closer the shallower the depth of field I guess I meant. + 17-50 is only 2.8
