Samyang/Rokinon set to announce new cine prime lenses (XEEN 24mm, 50mm, 85mm T1.5)

xeen

Samyang/Rokinon is about to launch a new line-up of cine prime lenses under the brand name XEEN. We got word about this thanks to our friends at DicaHub.

XEEN 24mm, 50mm, and 85mm T1.5 prime lenses are expected to be announced by Samyang on August 10 (also be sold under the Rokinon XEEN name). The lenses will fit on Canon EF and other mounts.

The XEEN lenses will be well beyond Samyang/Rokinon’s usual price tags: each of the lenses is expected to have a $2,500 price tag. It’s Samyang’s attempt to compete with the likes of Zeiss, Canon, and Schneider, so I guess the price is adequate.

So far we have only one image of the 24mm lens.

[Review & Pre-Order] Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Cinema Lens

Our friends over at the phoblographer reviewed the Rokinon 8mm T3.8 Cinema fisheye lens (click here). This is a lens made for videography, it has T-stops instead of F-stops. The Rokinon 8mm Fisheye can be ordered at B&H ($349.00 click here) and Amazon US ($399.00 click here) and on eBay (click here). The review is interesting because the lens is reviewed «trying to target the photographer that would also shoot video».

I won’t anticipate too much about the review. Just a few excerpts from the review…:
