AC on the lenses [In reply to] Can't Post

The December 2001 issue of American Cinematographer has a story, "Ring-bearers," that discusses the equipment. On lenses:

The filmmakers employed prime lenses ranging from 10mm to 800mm (a combination of Zeiss Standards and Ultra Primes), along with Cooke and Angenieux 25-250mm HR T3.5 zooms. Canon telephotos handled the longer end of the range, and the production also used macro and Revolution lenses. (pp. 39-40)

Not much on which lenses were used for which shots. You might also try the three articles on the films in Cinefex, though those deal mostly with special effects rather than cinematography in general.
