Let’s face it. Buying a set of professional cinema lenses is a hefty investment. You can easily spend five-digit figures and even in the six-digit figures for the very high end lenses from the likes of ARRI, Cooke, and Leica.
Of course, the more budget-friendly alternative would be still photography lenses. Whether it is a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 or a classic Zeiss 50mm, there are many reasons why people opt to use still lenses for filming.
