I have Sirui M3004 with Manfrotto 701HDV. It's nice! It's a great tripod with many cools: you can unscrew one leg and use it as monopod (there are two bolts in box for head), it has both spikes and gums, it's really tall!

I would sell 50 f1.4 and buy 5DII with 70-200. It's very usefull to have two cameras with different lenses.

What for 200-400L or take 16-35L if you like zooms.

Wow! It's good picture! I worked with Zeisses on one production. Producer wanted Zeiss picture plastique.

Hydrogen, what lenses will you put on your back up camera?
You can use 24-70 f2.8 on 5D3 and 85 f1,2 on 5Dc. It will be good and quality of pictures will not differ much I think.

And what about rent? I take lenses for rent and light sometimes besides fly-cam and scater-dolly.
It's very expensive to have everything for own.

Always use. I wrote it to defaults in LR4. And Camera Calibration for colours.

It's mo problem to use M42 lenses on 5D3 or 6D with AF-confirming. Trust me as I'm fan of Helios and Industar. ))

if you are looking for a 'filmic' look, a problem with hd in general is that it's often too sharp and determined.
therefore always looking to use 'older' and softening lenses for film like imagery. preferably produced before the 70ties.

Wow! I was sure I was only idiot who thought the same way))
I was working in small production and one director told me that the problem was not in lanses but in light (picture was toooooo sharp). We were arguing for an hour and decided to test some combinations. We'll do it.

although i like most of the canon lens range a lot, even the zooms which are great in their field, in general for a more filmic look the imagery is rather sharp most of the time. colors blend less than with exposure on film.

Canon lens are good for no art movies, I think. Or you should know how to use aperture right. Or how to change aperture and shutter speed at the same time and without step-effect.

preferably anamorphic

Yes! This is the only way to cinema.

and then you can be lucky in russia finding those kind of 'home' made obscure lenses with a nice drop in depth of field.

I have two soviet lenses, Gelios 44m & Industar 61 L/Z and Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestor 135 mm f/ 2.8 («Bokeh King»); will show you how it works on 5D Mark III.
