Do Not Cheap Out With Canon 60d Lenses, Buy Right 60d Lens

The 60d is a great camera. Canon 60d lenses are easy to find, there are a lot of them, not just Canon brands too. You can even use Nikon lenses on Canon cameras. The thing that really helped the DSLR revolution for independent filmmakers take off is the fact that you can change lenses on these cameras. It's like having a high end HD video camera that can change lenses for under 3000 dollars. Amazing!

Canon 60d lenses are only different in terms of the crop factor. The thing you want to figure out is if you want to use a full frame lens on the 60d or an APS-C cropped lens. So what is the difference, and why does this matter? The biggest difference is in the price. You will pay a lot more for a full frame lens. As an example I use a full frame prime lens on my 60d. The reason for this is that it saves me money because I can take that lens and put it on my 5d too. If you do not plan to use a full frame camera like the 5d, then you can get cropped Canon 60d lenses, or even old used lenses, and save tons of money that way instead.

Another thing I'd like to point out with Canon 60d lenses, is don't cheap out too much. No matter what lens you decide to get, get one that is made out of glass, not plastic. Do not get a kit lens. Quality glass, or lens, can make a bad sensor, or small sensor, look good, and cheap lenses, like a kit lens, can make a great sensor, or big sensor, look bad. There is no point in getting a cheap kit lens for a DSLR camera. You will be defeating the purpose.

To get the max quality out of the huge, amazing sensors they put into DSLR cameras, you need to have quality glass. If you are shooting movies with the 60d, a Canon 60d review can be helpful toward understanding Canon 60d lenses, because you want to have prime lenses in this case. If you are using a matte box the prime lens you choose should have internal focusing, so that there is no physical lens movement that can interfere, or get caught on the matte box.

The lens is just as important as the sensor, and in some cases even more important. I can't stress this enough: get quality glass. I prime lens is super fast, so you can extend the awesome low light capabilities of the 60d even further. On the other hand, the new Canon L series lenses are supposed to be too sharp for DSLR video. Why? They enhance the moiré and antialias effect. Not good, but I think the 5d mark 3 can handle them, because of the anti moire filter built into it. You will have to sharpen the image in post though.

In terms of prime Canon 60d lenses: primes are lenses that have fixed focal lengths, and are typically used for cinema. Meaning if you are shooting, lets say, on a 50mm equivalent, which would be a 28mm on a cropped APS-C sensor, and you want a close up, you will have to pick up the camera and move it closer. This is the way cinema does.

Usually cinema shooting does not use zooms, if a cinema production wants to get closer they will move the whole camera closer on a dolly; although, since one of the Star Wars movies used a newsy zoom effect during battle, zooming in feature films is starting to get more and more popular. I think prime Canon 60d lenses are best for speed, they tend to be faster than zooms, so they will get you a cleaner image in low light. Are they sharper than other lenses? Perhaps, but the big difference is when you get up to the really expensive cine lenses. I still only use primes when shooting a movie, and they have served me well.
