tl;dr I am trying to choose between the Rebel t5i or Lumix GH3 for filmmaking. I like the Gh3 better I think, but a 50mm (or 25mm for m4/3)for nice DoF and cinematic look is very expensive for the GH3. Not so for the rebel.
Been doing some research regarding a camera. I need one for a college course, and being a film major thought I'd use it as an opportunity to buy one I could use to make short films/music videos ect. Narrowed it down to the Canon Rebel t5i/700d or the Panasonic Lumix GH3. My issue is lenses. To get a nice 50mm lens (looks the best imo for short films) it's like $500 on the Gh3 and only $100 on t5i/
Lenses are cheaper for the rebel from what I can see. Just curious if anyone can help sway me into picking either one. Anything helps! Thanks!
