plorrSome of those late FD zooms are really good and cheap as fuck. I've got a mint 28-85 f4 that I snagged for $60 at a local camera store. The adapter I bought for it cost more than the lens. Perfect for run and gun video work with my a7s. Fuck autofocus 2.8 zooms. Can barely rent a 24-70 for one day for that price.
DingoSeanIs it the Tokina? That's actually a remarkably good lens.
f2.8 zooms are meh for videography.. I can afford SO many awesome primes for what it would cost for an overpriced zoom.
plorrNo, it's an actual Canon lens. This one:
Very plasticky, but at least it has a constant aperture and actual manual focus with hard stops.
I bought it after I took a gig shooting live music and realized there was no way I could pull it off with just primes. It paid for itself in one day.
