    Here's another review of the 20mm lens that has a bit more video. Looks like a nice lens to me.

    I’m a video enthusiast, I would like to upgrade from my fs5 to a fx9. Getting the kit with the 28-135mm f/4 G
    My primary use is taking video of my family I have small kids.
    I would like to invest around $10k in lenses, which ones do you guys recommend ?
    Also I’m using a zoom f6 for audio.With a rode ntg3 mic

    Assuming you don't have any lenses already, you may as well jump straight into Sony E-mount lenses.

    Since you'll already have the kit lens for general use & run & gun, I'd get the 16-35 to cover your wide shots, a 50ish mm prime, and then the 200-600mm for when they play sports. You should invest in a solid tripod as well.

    You're going to buy an FX-9 to shoot home videos? Based upon my experience, it's way too large and heavy to work successfully as a home video camera. If it were me, I would never haul that
    beast to soccer games, Disneyland, the beach, etc. Once you put the lens on, the larger battery and cards, it's not super heavy for a pro camera but for a home camera, yikes.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Thanks I have a very sturdy tripod with a fluid head, For lenses even though I have a new collection of Nikon lenses for my z7. They don’t work well for video.

    When they do soccer games etc I just take a SOLOSHOT 3.
    When we do racing I take a big camera.
    I also like making time lapses, and most of all I like to thinker with the camera, streaming live etc.
    I really got spoiled with the Variable nd of the fs5, but the poor 4K performance is what made me upgrade.
    For me is a hobby, I even have an ingest station on my server room in my house.
