Samyang XEEN Lens Family Expands To 5 Members
Samyang has announced the release of 2 new lenses: XEEN 14mm T3.1 and 35mm T1.5. These two lenses, along with the existing 24mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5 and 85mm T1.5 XEEN lenses are designed for filming video and feature X-Coating Technology as well as bright apertures all in aluminum metal housing.
The 24mm x 36mm negative size allows XEEN 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.
Commenting on the XEEN range, an XEEN official said: "Thanks to the rise of multi-channel networks, the demands for video creation is internationally surging and the expectation of video quality is also increasing. To satisfy the international needs, we have completed the first five lenses which deliver a high-quality cinematic image."
The XEEN 14mm and 35mm lenses will be globally available in early March. The recommended retail price of each lens is £1599.00 inc VAT. The XEEN official also said that two more XEEN lenses will be announced in the second half of the year.
