Re: best budget lens for crop sensor?

For filiming ... I assume you want a big aperture so you can get subject background isolation?

As resolution isn't a challenge for video and you don't need to worry about (phase detect) focus calibration issues, then that would point you squarely at the Tamron 30mm f/1.4.

If you want a zoom lens for video, here is a list of Canon EOS lenses that are parfocal:
