I thought about buying the Rokinon 14mm, but it might be too wide.
I'm on a tight budget right now, and I'm using a crop sensor (60D) for video.
Any opinions? Other options?

The Rokinon/ Samyany 14mm will be approx 22mm on the APS-C 60D. 1.6x

There are also 24, 35mm versions in f1.4 though the price may not meet your budget.
What about the Canon 50mm 1.8, they're around $100?

50mm isn't wide enough, it'll be good for event photography but not for video... Also, I have my father's 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor lens and all I need is an adapter if I want an excellent 50mm lens.

everyone talks crap on kit lenses, but the 18-55 IS II is great for its price. Covers the wide angle and has IS. Or you can get the sigma version for the same price if you need a faster lens. It's 2.8 on the wide end and I think F4 on the long end.

I agree with maverick75 the 18-55 kit lens seems unloved but I've found it to be a pretty good all rounder considering how cheap it is. (not quite f2.8 and f4, if only! mine does f3.5 at 18mm and f5.6 at 55mm)

Good quality fast lenses tend to be expensive, there's not really any getting around that!

If you are looking in the price range of the Rokinon 14mm personally I'd spend a little more and get the EFS 10-22 as I find the flexibilty of having a zoom to be really important.

I saw the Sigma 20-40mm f/2.8 at the shop today. Thoughts?

I don't know what your budget is, but the Tokina 11-16 is probably the best wide angle lens on a crop for video ever.

Isn't it too wide?

What's your budget? The 28mm f/1.8 is a good bang for the buck, fast lens.

+1. Nobody could suggest a lens without knowing your budget.

Well, now my budget is pretty big, but I'll need to return the money I'm loaning. I almost went for the 16-35mm f2.8 L USM but I don't know if I could make enough money to return the loan in the time I have.
I might be using my brothers 18-55mm EF-S at the end... Although I will save money for a good wide lens, and I still need opinions.

I usually use my kit 18-135mm. For the video quality of the 60D it works fine. I use a 50mm for more cinematic stuff, but generally at 18mm I can get good shots indoors etc..
