    Hey guys. So I started another thread asking for advice on Canon lenses, but the discussion eventually broadened into Canon and PL options, so I thought it might be useful to compile what people think are good PACKAGES (not just individual lenses). Any kind of lens package is fair game, just please include prices wherever possible so it's easy to compare. Here are mine. I'll add to this list as others post:

    Let's also put the usual suspects on here like Super Speeds (all versions), Ultra Primes, Master Primes, etc. I have no experience purchasing high end glass so maybe other people could chime in on prices and ideal packages.

    LOL. Tom, you would add $30,000 to a Canon package just for one focal length? Don't you think most people would just buy the Canon 14mm f2.8 so the package looks like this?

    Hehe. But trust me when I tell you that I have some very specific uses for that 12mm or 14mm Master Prime! Mostly it's for specialized astrophotography... like filming astro timelapse from a moving boat at Lake Powell, for example. But I also love the idea of being able to use that 14mm MP on a Steadicam in super low light (after sunset or at night at 24fps), as another example. A couple stops could make a huge difference for some shots I have in mind, and the ultra-wide, ultra-fast, ultra-sharp, 5K-ready prime is the one thing missing from a Canon still lens package, from my point of view. I can live with the iris nonsense, and I actually prefer a shorter focus through for the type of stuff I am shooting now.

    Placing my deposit for the Cooke Panchros on monday with ZGC... to quote Tonaci:
    Cooke Panchro Lens Set T2.8 across
    Cooke 18mm PANCHRO Lens - 8900
    PANCHRO Lens Set ( 25mm, 32mm , 50mm, 75mm & 100mm) - $33,600
    Total 42,500

    For low light I'll back these up with Zeiss ZF's

    35 T/1.4 $2093 with Duclos Mod (This Lens shipping SOMETIME this year)
    50 T/1.4 $1075 with Duclos Mod
    85 T/1.4 $1625 with Duclos Mod

    Plus I have my RPS 17-50 that I'm pretty sure I'll hold onto.

    CB

    I added a couple of more and went ahead and put them all in order by price. Does anybody know the f-stops for the Unique Optics Razor 7D Set?

    I would prefer the Nikon 14-24 over the 17-35, as would, I think, most people.
