Globally available in August, with a recommended retail price of € 2,200, the Xeen 135mm T2.2 offers, says Samyang, outstanding image quality from resolving power for 4K+ production for filming video and cinema.
The new lens joins the existing five lenses of 14mm T3.1, 24mm T1.5, 35mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5 and 85mm T1.5 in the Xeen family, a specialized brand in professional video-cine lens launched by Samyang Optics in 2015. The XEEN lenses are designed with Samyang Optics’ know-how and have outstanding optical performance for 4K+ with the X-Coating Technology, ensuring maximum image quality to create a cinematic look.
The full format ( 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. Also, adds Samyang, the aluminium metal housing is known for its reliability in various shooting conditions.
The new Xeen 135mm adds telephoto angle to the existing Xeen set, enabling to extend capture options in films and videos. Also the bright T2.2 offers high quality footage with clear contrast and impressive colors, says Samyang, even under less-than-optimal lighting conditions. The large aperture also creates a pleasing bokeh effect for a cinematic look.
The Xeen 135mm T2.2 is not the only lens Samyang plans to launch. The company announced it will release a total of five lenses throughout five weeks as a 2016 Summer Samyang Blockbuster campaign starting with this lens. The other four lenses will be announced on every Monday from July 25th to August 15th.
