    I want to try my hand at some film work, most likely with the G2, but I want to stick with a manual lens and the ones I have are all unacceptable. Fast 50s are too long, and the only 28mm I have is crap. I'm thinking one of the CCTV long zooms, but I'm open to almost anything...

    Basic desires:
    1) Cheeeap. Under a hundred ideally.
    2) Good for cine work. I don't know what that means.
    3) No swirly bokeh. Uuugggghh.
    4) Minimal vignetting in 16:9 mode.
    5) Large zoom range would be nice.
    6) The faster the better, though this doesn't seem to be a problem with the potentials.

    I do have the 20mm/1.7 and 45mm/1.8, so I'm not really looking for more primes.
