lenses for video ?

1 year 3 weeks ago #648496 by travishayes1234
Hello all, after spending hours on google for a few days i have decided to ask for help. It goes without saying i am a beginner or i would not be seeking guidance. I am using a 5d mark 4. i have always dont portrait shooting and my collection only consists of the ef 85 1.2 and its little brother the ef 50mm.
i have my eye now on the dji ronin gimbal and am pretty confused what lens i would need to best suit my needs. i would like a lens that is suited for outdoor shooting with dogs down low. i would like something suited for chasing around pets in the yard and as dogs cannot be told to stay withing my preferred shooting range i need something that will have some auto focus and or auto zoom option. Odd as it is i actually do a lot of work with dog owners and would love to offer some video work for fun. im not to sure what lens best suits this need, holding a gimbal down low i do not have the ability to adjust my camera on the fly and reset as the dogs come in and out of range so i need something versatile. 

Thank you in advance for any help you may have to give !
