    Thank you guys. I really appreciate all your inputs. I know 70-200 is a fantastic lens, i would buy it but only if i find some great deal online.

    By the way, which one would be better for my Canon 70D:

    This Sigma 19mm 2.8 http://www.digitalrev.com/product/si...MTAwMjM5Mw_A_A

    or this Olympus 17mm 1.8 http://www.digitalrev.com/product/si...MTAwMjM5Mw_A_A

    Its a great lens, but practically not the one that will be most of the time on your camera! If you have the money...sure...why not? But if you re on a budget the f4 version could be a great alternative...cheaper, smaller and lighter

    They re for M4/3 systems, like the GH series for example...you need lenses that cover at least the APSC sensor of the 70D. That means EF or EF-S lenses from Canon or Canon mount lenses from the other companies...

    Thank you lyrov. Didn't notice that, what a shame!

    WebPLC at this moment i only own the Canon 70D with the kit 18-55 lens

    I dont mind to spend $2000 for now to buy some lenses that could cover me well for any type of video.

    Did you buy your camera for stills and video, or just video?

    I wouldn't shoot a short with just a super wide either. My 70-200 gets a lot of use on my C100 because people loooooove the way it looks in interviews. When you don't have a beautiful backdrop, the 70-200 2.8 can make just about anything look nice! It's not just a sports lens.
    Back when I used to shoot photos full time for a living it was the most used lens in my arsenal.

    Agreed. And for the record, I to have used the 70-200mm (albeit the F4) on a C100/6D with great results.

    But the main point I was trying to make is: you really have to choose a lens based on your needs. I think the OP has some homework to do, based off his latest posts
