Since no one else responded, I really liked the sigma 30mm f/1.4 when I did a couple of shots of video. I don't shoot video very often though. The focus ring is really smooth and has good travel. It's not really a budget lens but not the most expensive either. It has nice bokeh to isolate your subjects, but this will put even more importance on you being able to manually focus correctly. The 85mm f/1.8 is also very nice.

The kit lenses are hard to MF due to short travel. Is there any better budget lens (prime or zoom) in this respect?
