Thread: I'm looking for a cinematic-type lens for my Sony a6300

  1. #1
    I currently have the kit 16-50mm, a 55-210mm and a 50mm f/1.8. I'd like something with a shallower depth of field, but wider than the 50mm. Any APS-C, E-mount suggestions that won't break the bank?

    You’ll be hard pressed to find something with both shallower depth of field and wider angle simultaneously. In any case, Sigma 16mm and 30mm F/1.4 lenses look like pretty nice lenses for the money and seem to have about as shallow DoF as you’ll find for the money

    I’ve been happy with the results so far, and the built in optical image stabilisation makes a difference when comparing it to other lenses. If you’d got the 6500 then perhaps the Sigma would be a better option as the camera has in body stabilisation.

    This is the correct answer.
    The 35/1.8 OSS is really the best, most versatile prime for an A6300 in the E-mount system. And by far the best bang-for-buck.
    The optical image stabilization on the 35/1.8 will often outweigh the 2/3 stop advantage of the Sigma 30/1.4, and the smaller physical size and weight is much better matched to the A6300.

    This is a great option, you could look into the 20mm 2.8 Pancake lens as well
