    I have a A6500 w/ 16-70 lens. I am mostly doing still photography with it and it works out wonderfully! I am getting into video and am wanting to smooth out the zooming of the lens. I am assuming some type of rigging, like those pull focus setups, to get smooth zooming. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don’t want to break the bank right now.

    Have you considered a lens with internal power zoom? I find that easier for video vs photography. I’m not sure Sony has many good for low light situations. The 18-105mm f/4 with steady shot is decent.

    I know about that lens. Wide-angle is a concern and 16 isn’t wide enough for my liking right now. I prefer a pull zoom option that does not lock me into a given lens.
