Three more Samyang/Rokinon XEEN cine lenses coming?

Three More Samyang/Rokinon XEEN Cine Lenses Coming?

Our friends at DicaHub spotted some new information about Samyang/Rokinon XEEN cine lens lineup.

Last week Samyang/Rokinon annouced three new lenses in a new lens line-up called XEEN. The lenses are a 24mm, a 50mm, and a 85mm, all are T1.5.

It appears that Samyang/Rokinon has three more XEEN lenses ready to be announced, an ultrawide lens that’s either 14mm or 16mm, a 35mm lens, and a telephoto that may be either 100mm or 135mm.

Samyang/Rokinon’s new cine lenses are priced $2,495, pretty good price for such lenses.

Off Brand: Is The Sony A7rII The Most Over-hyped, Over-priced Camera Of The Year?

In the last weeks I got a lot of emails, comments etc all telling me the Sony Alpha a7RII was about to annihilate Canon (and Nikon, for that matter). So I decided to have a look on this camera that seems to get people excited beyond reason (according to some emails and comments).

What you see in the pic above is a Canon EOS 5D Mark III pendant made out of 14K gold. You can see the pendant has a Canon 24mm L lens “mounted”. What you see on the lens bezel are 34 diamonds, all set in by hand.

The pendant was made by IF & Co for a photographer named Jay.

Canon working on EF 800mm f/5.6 DO IS lens? [CW2]

Canon Working On EF 800mm F/5.6 DO IS Lens? [CW2]

Canon might have an EF 800mm f/5.6 DO IS lens in development. A pertinent patent was spotted in December 2012.

A recent rumor suggests that Canon is developing more DO super telephoto lenses and that 800mm is one of the optical designs. “DO” stands for diffractive optical elements.

Could this be an update for the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM lens? It’s possible. The EF 800mm f/5.6L IS was announced back in 2001, a replacement is likely.

Take everything with a grain of salt, since most of the rumor is based on speculation.
