Lens for video on D800
Nov 4, 2012

I am new to video, not only on DSLR but in general. It is my kids job to shoot family footage when we travel and I am responsible for still pictures gear. However, I just got D800 and tried video option - very interesting, impressive. I would like to try more. The problem I see right away is that with my portrait primes have no VR and image stabilization is the key for a good video. At least so I was told. What are the options for D800? Are there any generally accepted "right" lenses for video? I suppose I do not need 85 1.4G type lens for motion picture and I can get away with a simpler zoom with a VR. Or am I wrong?

Greatly appreciate your advice.

Nikon D800
