Rokinon has added two wide-angle lenses to its Xeen CF Professional Cine Lens line for PL, Canon EF and Sony E mount: the 16mm (T2.6) and the 35mm (T1.5).
With these new additions, the Xeen CF lineup has grown to a set of five primes: 16mm (T2.6), 24mm (T1.5), 35mm (T1.5), 50mm (T1.5) and 85mm (T1.5).
The 16mm weighs 2 pounds and measures 3.24" in length.
The 35mm weighs 2.4 pounds and also measures 3.24" in length.
Like Rokinon’s other CF lenses, the new models are compatible with gimbals, drones and compact cameras. This was accomplished by utilizing carbon-fiber construction rather than metal for a sturdier, lighter, more durable product.
The lenses are compatible with large image sensors (43.3mm image circle) and feature luminous markings, standard 95mm front diameters, Xeen X-coating to control internal reflection, and uniform focus- and aperture-ring locations to facilitate quick lens changes when using follow-focus devices.
All Rokinon Xeen CF lenses are covered by a three-year warranty.
“The new Xeen CF lenses show faces in a most beautiful way, with smooth and subtle transitions,” says Bill Bennett, ASC.
