    I'm looking for zoom lenses with the following characteristics:
    • Parfocal
    • Front of lens does not rotate (needs to hold an anamorphic adapter level)
    • f/2.8 or as close as possible
    • As affordable as possible
    • Covering 30-200mm(ish)
    So I'm thinking a pair of older/vintage zooms. I know there are Vivitar f/2.8's that are parfocal, but I don't know which (if any) have a front assembly that remains stationary while zooming/focusing.

    Maybe there is no affordable solution, but I'm hoping there are some experienced zoom owners out there that can help.

    Might pay to request this on EOSHD.com in the lenses forum.

    Thanks! Most zooms mentioned over there are beyond my current budget, but if I have to save $$$ longer to for better options, that's okay. There's also a couple good camera stores nearby so I plan on visiting them and picking their brains when I get a chance.
