Compact, full frame Sony compatible lenses optimized for video?
I recently purchased a Sony ZV-E1 to shoot handheld video of my family. Does anyone have recommendations for compact, lightweight lenses that perform well with a full frame Sony optimized for video? I like how compact the kit lens is (FE 28-60 F4-5.6), but wonder if it's sufficient. I tried the FE 20-70G F4, but it felt a bit heavier than what I'm hoping for, since I'm mainly doing hand held work and bending over a lot. Are compact fixed lenses the way to go? If so, what would be the best lenses / focal lengths for shooting family members, babies, etc? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. 

The 28-60mm has a trashy reputation, but then you don't need a hell of a lot of quality for 4K video.

The Sony FE PZ 16-35mm f/4 G is optimized for video and more lightweight than the 20-70mm G.
Maybe add the 50mm f/2.5G for longer shots. The 24/40/50G are all quite neat for handheld video I reckon.

For anything longer than 50mm, you probably need a gimbal, a tripod or slow-mo.

That being said - I'm not a video expert. :-)
