Samyang has today announced a new set of Xeen Meister cine lenses. The new collection is kicking off with three lenses at 35mm, 50mm and 85mm focal lengths, all with a maximum transmission of T1.3. Oh yes, these are some WIDE aperture lenses! As well as the three new T1.3 primes, there’s also a new Xeen Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 2x.
The Xeen name has been around for a while in the Samyang lineup, but Xeen Meister is the name Samyang is giving to their most premium of cine lenses. What is very new, though, is the anamorphic lens. Rumours have been around for a while now that Samyang was working on an anamorphic lens, but it’s taken a while to bring it to fruition. Well, now, Samyang’s first anamorphic lens, the Xeen Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 2x, is official.
