System goals? Ground pounding or accuracy? Budget?

I'd always recommend Dynaudio components above every other brand out there when it comes to accuracy.

I'd recommend a Dynaudio MD102 tweeter that's been taking out of it's outer casing. Have to create a custom mount. Use a simple crossover and attach the fly leads to another wiring harness that's...

Houston has some good optical shops nearby for obvious reasons. Now if they started to do refinishing for the brand C lenses, you would see a huge improvement in their optical quality.

Correct. The better optic is about HALF the cost of the brand C 800mm. But then you're adding AF, aperture control, etc on the brand C.

Focal length will always the same for a lens, whether it be 35mm, APS-C, APS-H, 4x5, etc, it's the apparent field of view that changes with the different sensors. The other factor is the light cone...

Be careful when handling the 50 1.4 Canon lens. The focus barrel has a very thin spot internally for one of the focus cams. All it takes is a light knock and it'll be rendered useless since the...

Bit,

Even with the gain turned all the way down to the second to the last notch, you'll still get lots of noise. Canon DSLR preamps aren't up to the task. What are you recording?

Bit,

Canon makes some of the worst preamps for DSLR movie usage. I'd suggest getting an external recorder. Just stay away from the cheapo Zoom H4 series. The Sony PCM D50 can be had for a good...

Speakers first! If you're after sound quality, I'd get some Dynaudio speakers. You'll have to find out what sizes your IS has and then go from there. Definitely some custom work but you'll beat...
