I just bought the 70D and I'm wondering what the best lens is to use while shooting video.

i don't have a video capable camera...but i think it'd be best if you could give more info...knowing what you are going to be shooting is probably a bit important...

Did you get it with one of the STM lenses? Those are the best for video on it...

Try posting your question in the video forum. You'll probably get more Informed replies there.

Without knowing your style, id say the 40mm pancake makes a nice video lens. Fast and silent STM Focus motor, great focal length on crop and nice Bokeh. Fastest lens of all STM lenses (f/2.8)

The 40mm is nice, except that it offers no image stabilization. My current lenses have audible noise while recording video- clicks as well has humming of the USM.

Maybe an external microphone is a better option than a dedicated video lens.

After thinking about it, id say, go for a mic if you want to do serious. When taking a fast lens (as none of the STM's are really fast) you get very high quality IQ...

You do not ever want to use IS when filming. Ever.

The 18-135 STM has an IS made for Video and works very well with it :)
Dave

ps its call Dynamic IS and from Canon
" Appearing for the first time in a Canon lens is Dynamic IS (Movie Shooting Mode only) that uses a wide image stabilization correction range to help ensure steady video while shooting when walking.
