Samyang Optics has announced the release of the new XEEN 135mm T2.2 cine lens. The Xeen series was first announced in August 2015 with another two lenses added to the seriesin February 2016.
This new addition brings the total range of Xeen lenses to six models: 14mm T3.1, 24mm T1.5, 35mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5 and 85mm T1.5 and the XEEN 135mm T2.2. Each Xeen lens offers outstanding image quality for 4K+ production for filming video and cinema.
The 24mm x 36mm negative size allows XEEN lenses to not only work with full frame cameras, but also with Super 35, APS-C and APS-H cameras. The lenses are available in five different mounts – PL, EF, F, E, and MFT and two different focus scales – metric and imperial units.
The new XEEN 135mm adds a telephoto angle to the existing XEEN set and the bright T2.2 offers high quality footage with clear contrast and impressive colours, even under less-than-optimal lighting conditions. The large aperture also creates a pleasing bokeh effect for a cinematic look.
Created to deliver infinite possibilities, XEEN 135mm T2.2 will be globally available in August. The recommended retail price of the lens is £1799.99 inc VAT.
