Forum Thread: Help me choose "amazing lens" for Canon 7D.

Hi, all!
My long-time dream to shoot own quality / beautiful / interesting videos.

At the beginning of the year (2012) I buy a Canon 7D.
I ask your advice, which lenses to take for filming movies and music videos?
I want a smooth, deep image.
Price not over the $ 800 - $ 1000.

Thank you for your advice. I appreciate every comment.

Btw, here's my examples:

#1 Lens

CANON EF 70-200mm F4 F/4 L IS USM LENS

#2 Lens

Carl Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZE 50 F1.4

#3 Lens

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM

Just I need a good LCD and microphone. I'm choosing between the RODE VideoMic 2 and Zoom H4n.
Just do not want to overpay.
My total budget is about $ 5000.
