Recommendations for a CF and lens for video?
Nov 19, 2009

So I'm just about to drop by Best Buy and pick up my 7D, but since I'm using a 10% coupon, I'm trying to pick up any other accessories (lenses/CF specifically) to get the biggest bang for my buck.

However, I'm relatively new to DSLRs, I just know that I want to shoot primarily video with a good bokeh. For a cheap alternative, I was considering Canon 50mm f1.8D which runs a little less than a hundred just to start off, but I don't know if I should go ahead and invest a little more in a lens straight off the bat.

Also, I have been reading about CFs for the 7D, and it seems there's some debate on how much the faster cards actually benefit when using the 7D. Considering I want to shoot video, I think CF speed might be fairly important, but I'm not completely sure, nor do I know what kind of sizes I should be expecting the 7D to create, so I don't know what size CF I should aim for.

If anyone has any suggestions that would be greatly appreciated!
