any suggestions on lenses, I really want to get a 85mm prime for insane focus pulls, but that lens is a grand
What Canon L glass should I get?
I agree that to need at least 60fps for slow motion sequences, even with twixtor.

In my opinion you are not really going to notice the difference between the 85 mm non-L and L lens (which is actually closer to two grand)
. Also without a micro red like setup doing a smooth focus adjustment is going to be hard. I would suggest getting some non-L priyesh for practice then renting from borrowlenses.com, you can rent a Canon 85 L for the weekend for only 60bucks... Which is more cost effective I think. They also rent some even higher end cinema lenses for Canon mounts.

Good luck and would love to see your videos if you have them posted online.
