My Gear: Lenses



This is my collection of lenses that use an EF mount for Canon SLR cameras. I have been shooting with them for almost my entire career - first as a photographer, and then with video. EF glass is some of the sharpest out there, and works well whether you are shooting stills or motion.




Since I became involved in filmmaking, I have used Cine Lenses more and more often.  These lenses are built differently than traditional still photography glass so that they function well for shooting films.  They often have distance marks on both sides of the barrel (for an assistant to pull focus), hard stops on the focus ring (so that the distance marks are always accurate), a geared focus ring so that the lens can interact with a follow focus, and measurements of aperture in T-stops (instead of F-Stops).
