Nikon D600 best budget configuration for portrait videography?
I have the D600 and I use it for videography too. So far I have not invested in a dedicated "cine" lens although the research I am doing to educate myself on the nuisances of cine photography all point to the need of a manual lens.
So far I have made Video's on D600 using 50 1.8g and 85 1.8g. The video come out great however, when using auto focus with video you loose control of the focus. Sometimes the focus grabs on the nearest subject. I have not yet had an opportunity to put the lens in manual mode to record video.
I would also recommend that you invest in the following two items.
The monopod makes a tremendous difference in your video recording. I cannot believe the difference in recording clarity when using a monopod versus handheld ( and I have a fairly steady grip).
With respect to the lenses I would go for the Samyung 35mm cine. It has very good reviews and designed for videography. Further my understanding is that 35 mm is the "normal" cine lens much like "50 mm" is the normal photography lens.
An alternative would be the old Nikon AIS manual lenses.
