Topic: Help me choose a lens for stop motion
Good afternoon. I'm a trained photographer, and I have some photographic equipment. For my work, I use:
1. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.
2. Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM.
3. Sigma AF 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART Canon EF.
4. Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Canon EF.
5. Canon Speedlite 580EX II.
There is also a tripod, extension rings for macro photography, wireless remote control for the camera, LED illuminator Manfrotto Lumie Play, memory cards, backgrounds, and more.
My question to experts: for shooting LEGO Animation, I'm going to buy a macro lens, but I doubt whether this purchase is really necessary. Please look at my lenses and tell me if these focal lengths are enough. Or is it better to buy a macro? I am considering Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro or Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Canon EF.
Are macro lenses really necessary for shooting LEGO Animation? Which lenses can be considered universal for this purpose? (for a price no more than 1000 dollars). I would not like to have extra expenses.
From lighting equipment, I'm going to buy Rekam CL-435-FL3-SB Boom kit. I think this kit will be enough.
Sorry for my poor English, I use auto-translation.
