I own two C300 cameras that I use mostly for sit down interviews for ABC News, CBS News and some HBO shows. My go-to lens for this has been the Sigma 50-150/2.8, which I find better than my Canon 70-200/2.8 mk2 (which I sold after getting two of the 50-150 Sigmas) but lately this Samyang 85mm (which...
