Newbie - which Canon lens would be best for this type of work?

Hello Everyone,

Firstly, happy New Year to you all!

I hope someone can offer advice. I'm wanting to buy a Canon 7D but am unsure about suitable lenses for the type of work that currently mostly shoot. I realize that IS is important for me, but otherwise I am lost! Here is a video of a recent project that I shot as a promo for someone:



Distance wise, I'm not going to be at the back of a theatre, but I assume a zoom lense would also be advisable?

Thanks in advance.
Russ

It would be best to have a few lenses but if you were to get just one lens I would recommend the Canon 70-200 IS f2.8 If you are really far back you can try getting a 100-400mm as well but i find the 70-200 is the perfect zoom lens

I just remembered that Sigma makes a 50-500 canon holster lens. It is a bit slower but has way more range. I have used it, and for video it still looks pretty good

A great all around lens is the 16-35mm 2.8, its pricey but great for focus.
you can get a great wide shot keep most of your shot in focus.
