    Heh, the drools all on my chin :) But just as much for the Hawk!

    I haven't used the RF Canon's but the Sigma Arts look way more cinematic than the Canon L's, to my eye. The 50-100 breathes like a mofo though. It's practically unusable.

    RF 24-105f4

    Because the KOMODO does pretty good in lower light judging by sample clips, and the 24-104 f4 RF is light, sharp, decently fast at f4 and it is built like a tank. That said if GDU made another indestructible lens using the rf 35mm and the autofocus was updated then Id have to reconsider for run and gun shooting

    What warms my cold hardened stone heart so very much from everybody who has replied to this thread is that you all have a different opinion on what that one lens is.

    And there is the actual answer to the question. There is only the one lens, if you even have to choose just one, that is right for you.

    Somewhat what I'm attempting to show with all my rigs and all that. Equally as powerful is you have much more lens choices now than even 10 years ago. It is indeed an incredible time to have access to tools and technology that also come with such freedom of choice.

    Happy lensing peeps.

    I surely go with the ONLY lens ever designed for Komodo form factor (and mirorless). Such a nice fit for run and gun...
    The small, yet powerfull, 28-340mm from Angenieux.

    You're welcome.

    So for compact setup, you can’t beat the RED 17-50mm T2.9 I could shoot a whole feature (and did) with that compact little zoom. No one has built a more compact cinema PL zoom with its size yet.

    On the other side, most likely I’ll be using my Cooke 20-100 for this camera if I had just 1 option.

    Lastly If it was a prime only... my newly rehoused Nikon Vista Speed T1.5 35mm prime.

    For me would be a Sigma 18-35.
    But only because I haven't found a 28-35mm prime i've fallen absolutely in love with yet (granted, i need to go out and try more)
