Lenses / Re: Videography vs. Photography Lenses

Greetings all,

I am new to the DSLR world and recently acquired a Canon 60D.

I have a Tamron 17-50 2.8 and a Canon 50 1.8

Low light performance is decent as well as "zoom" capability

I'd like to get a lens, or two, for a modest price that will allow me to capture better low light images and video as well as more zoom capability...

I am not sure if a Tamron or Sigma 17-200mm 2.8 is going to be feasible for video or low light although it will have the zoom and I know that a Rokinon 85mm 1.4 will be much better in low light but may not have the closeness from a  distance that the 70-200 would give...are these both lenses that would solve me video issues?


Main shooting types:

1. Narrative/Documentary
2. Sports
3. B-Roll (city shots, scenes, etc.)

Sigma 30mm F/1.4 :)
The zoom will increase camera shake so I don't recommend it. If you want over 50mm a 70-200mm f/2.8 is the way to go - would recommend Sigma again, though not as strongly as I recommend the 30mm F/1.4. Perspective wise on a cropped sensor camera like the 60D, the 30mm f/1.4 will look fantastic and offer beautiful low light, bokeh, color, etc. If you are working in low light I would also recommend a portable LED light that connects to where your hotshoe is.

The best buy is the 550D. You get the same same sensor as the 600D, the 60D and the 7D for a fraction of a cost. Put all your money into lenses.  Or into a full frame camera.
For video, I agree. I am mainly interested in the camera for video, but the T4i very likely will have the new Digic V processor making for better low light capabilities... also video autofocus hopefully.

I don't know what will be put in the new T4i to distinguish itself from the previous T3i.

A new sensor at higher resolution? I kinda doubt it. If not, what else?

I don't want any more pixels... should have the new Digic V processor for much better handling of ISO.
I really hope they have video autofocus too... the 1DX doesn't seem to have it, but Nikon has had it since the D7000 and packed it with their D31000 and D5100.

I'm assuming the T4i will be announced on February 7th at CP+ and rumors are now saying 5D Mark III later in the month. I've been waiting for the T4i hoping for promising new features... or just use the T3i with it's newly reduced price due to being replaced. I would get 5D Mark III if it weren't for it probably going to be like $3k :P

So thoughts? Features of T4i and 5D Mark III and possibility of them truly coming out.

Other fun facts:
^ All released at CP+ and a year in between one another.

I wish it would have 1080p @ 60fps, but the 1DX has 2 digic V processors and doesn't have it. It better have a decent auto-focusing system... it will surely have a large ISO performance difference.
