Nikon D600 best budget configuration for portrait videography?
Dec 17, 2012

As my name suggests i am a pro videographer.However i' am ignorant in terms of photography and lenses with the exception of camcorders (i currently own a panasonic AG-HPX250 P2 and a Canon xf305). Recently my girlfriend bought a nikon d600 body and looks for affordable lenses under 1000 euros to use it mainly for videography. Personal i consider the following lenses:

1)Samyang 35mm T1.5 AS UMC VDSLR (500 euros)

2) Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/50 ZF.2 50mm F1.4 - Nikon Mount (800euros)

or both if i buy it from a Hong Kong shop (both under 1000 euros)

I would like to buy a Carl Zeiss Distagon T however in my country is priced around 2000 euros (0r 1480 in HK) and therefore it is out of question. Finally, i am considering a Nikon AF-S 50mm f1.4G (400euros) instead of Carl Zeiss Planar T. How do you think they will perform especially in portrait videography? Do you have any others suggestions from other brands (eg. Tokina)?

Kind Regards (and sorry for my poor English)
