Compact and lightweight - the perfect fit for modern video filming trends
XEEN cine prime lenses were the first speciality video & cinema lenses released by Samyang Optics back in 2015. With 40 years of optical technology experience, Samyang and XEEN lenses have expanded the world's imaging market with exceptional image quality, highest precision optical technology and unique special-coating technology.
Reflecting the current trend in 'compact and lightweight' video equipment, along with outstanding definition, XEEN CF models are the first full-frame cinema lenses which incorporate carbon fibre (lighter and stronger than metal) into the lens barrel. They also feature luminous scale markings in a new, clearly visible font.
XEEN CF lenses support 8K and full frame (large format) image sensors installed in the latest movie cameras and will be available in PL, Sony E and Canon EF mounts. They are also compatible with equipment such as drones and gimbals, enabling truly flexible equipment operation. Carbon fibre has been used for its light weight, whilst adding durability and luxury through future-orientated design.
Look & feel - beautifully conveying delicate expression
With 8K support and unique X-Coating technology, the lenses themselves provide uncompromising clarity and detail, which can be effectively controlled to create a distinctive smooth and cinematic look (even with flare and ghosting for dramatic effects). Delicate emotions of figures can be maximised, whilst still showing rich depiction. The bright T1.5 aperture value and 11-bladed diaphragms produce excellent low-light performance and beautiful bokeh.
