We only had one lens, which was the "kit zoom lens" for my old 40D the EF 28-135mm 1:3.5 -5.6 IS. Part of the reason I joined the canon competition was the possibility of getting a faster lens. I still like the character of this lens although the image stabilizer has started to make a loud static noise which is clearly audible on the soundtrack. We did a minimum of color correction in final cut pro. And used Marvel Cine in the camera.
