    OK. I've shot 2 feature films and a bunch of shorts on my set and they've never let me down. Sharp and clean and well-built. The only "funky" thing is they flare more easily (than e.g. Ultra Primes)...

    The Tokina Vista 16-28mm zoom is a very good lens, and seems like a sensible choice to supplement your 35/50/85 primes.
    And the Mk1 version can be had for a bargain, now that the Mk2 version is out.

    It's not that I dislike the Sachtlers, they are efficient and (the sticks) faster than the Millers.

    I may be an outlier too, but I definitely prefer the Miller Compass 15 with the Sprinter sticks to the Sachtler 8T/Flowtech combo.

    Yes, and I think the difference between 18 and 25 can often be the difference between "visibly distorted"/"exaggerated perspective" and something that looks neutral/undistorted.
