Cine primes will be far beyond your budget, but you can still get pretty good photographic primes from the non-automatic era on Ebay. I use Minolta MC/MD Rokkors on our AF101 with simple adapters and a focus ring with the right pitch to attach a cine FF, plus a matte box and a set of NDs.

Only problem: there are no fast primes with enough of a wide angle among those. Get the 20mm/1.7 from Panasonic or the Voigtlander 25/0.95 if it fit's your budget in the end.

Plus, there's nothing like the 7-14mm from Panasonic for very wide angle (if needed), but it's not fast. BTW, all those photographic zooms can not really be considered video zooms, they should be regarded as 'variable primes' with all the negative sides Noah mentioned.
