Actually the size and weigh are fine, also I'm not new at all to video editing, I have a good computer, the only thing that seem excessive are the 6 k and the extreme bit rates. But it also means it's future proof to some extent.

What I meant is that it's pricey, so I'm afraid to break it. It's like having a Ferrari or something. The positive thing is that the camera will probably be worth no more than a few hundred bucks in 5 years or so, so I shouldn't be afraid to use it.

"Like having a Ferrari" yet you want a "cheap lens"? Get the 12-35 2.8 or the 10-25 1.7. Look at used lenses. No point in driving your Ferrari in only first gear. Cameras are ephemeral, lenses are long lasting.
