Thank you! I am a rank beginner at video! I have been using Final Cut Pro for years making video from my video clip take with various Nikon DSLR’s. I had no idea that there was such a thing as
CINE lenses for people like me!!!
Question: Which CINE lens under about $750 would you recommend for me?

PS: I am filming interviews for local charities to put on their websites, but I also get video clips on our travels to put in my Final Cut videos.
PPS: I recently went to your wonderful website.

You’re welcome. There is no cine lens under $750. Shoot with whatever you can afford. You’ll know when it’s time to really get a cine lens!
