It's depends if you want to take portrait or close up shots

Hello CryVFX. Your friend is giving you good advice. 50 mm 1.8 is very good lens and its priced very low about 150$ in my country. People called this lens “plastic fantastic” It has amazing price/quality balance.

I was in same situation when I was buying my 60D 2 yeras ago. I bought body + 18-135 and 50 1.8 / 18-135 is a little bit more expensive from the “kit lenses” but its good range. But its not good with low light conditions. In cheaper body you have to remember that iso higher then 400 or so is almost not acceptable. Noise is ruin the shadows…

I know its all about the money but must have is zoom 18-55 or 18-135 + bright 50 1.8 that is almost no difference with very expensive 1.4 even some people say that 1.8 its better. To be very flexible in with your gear you need also something very wide like 8mm fish eye. And you are well prepared to any production.

Good luck.

85mm 1.4 is also great one but only for portrait. Amazing DOF looks so “pro”. And very handle in almost no light indoors. Its sometimes happened when you have to film company event or fashion show, and when you arrive to the location you realized the atmosphere is “romantic” with only candles on the table :P

Get the kit lens and get the 50mm 1.8 because its not that expensive. the kit lens give you wide 18mm. but if you have the money, forget about everything you said, go for 7D and above, go for L lens.

if ur budget constraint you, take the kit lens plus extra 50mm 1.8. if you have little bit more than that, forget the kit lens, but go take a wider lens 12-24 or 10-16 from 3rd party producer plus the 50mm that you want. go for tele lens if you have some more spare like 70-200, or 70-300.

in the end, you should have 2 body (1 high end, 1 intermediate), and a few good lens ranging from 10mm – 400mm. Good luck man. wishing you many sales to come.

Same results for video. No need to pay more for 7D.

Best regards, Andrey

This is the best advice:

Do not buy cheap camera or lens. Pay some money for better (maybe best) results.

No.. if you want to do moving image, why not get an Arri Alexa? Only $90,000. Then you’ll need the lenses of course.

My point is that cheapness is relative. Comments like “do not buy a cheap camera or lens” are not that helpful. A 600D is not a cheap camera. A 7D is not an expensive camera. It depends how you look at it.

We’d need to know specifically what you consider to be cheap and why you consider this to be a worse buy than a specific more expensive option. Otherwise it’s not very meaningful.
