Samyang reveals a brand-new Cinema prime lens line-up

Samyang shows the world once again why it´s one of the world’s leading lens manufactures with no less than four new cinema lenses aimed for professional cinematography.

The new lenses are Xeen Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 and Xeen Meister 35mm T1.3, 50mm T1.3, and 85mm T1.3 models. These new premium XEEN lenses cover full-frame and larger sensors and is designed for high-end digital cinematography.


Xeen Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 2x

The new Xeen Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 opens up endless new creative opportunities, making shots possible that would have previously been considered impossible. The important and distinguishing visual facet of anamorphic images is the appearance of out-of-focus background elements or bokeh.


The newly developed iris with 13 aperture blades, creates perfectly oval and evenly illuminated out-of-focus highlights. This ensures a pleasing bokeh that filmmakers will enjoy manipulating creatively. After being de-squeezed, the 50mm T2.3 lens produces smooth cinematic 2.4:1 footage in a 16:9 setting. The Xeen Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 also features a Ø114mm, non-rotating front diameter, which is the ideal for use with a 4x5 matte mox.


Xeen Meister 35mm T1.3│50mm T1.3│85mm T1.3

Xeen Meister is a new series of lenses that lets cinematographers to create a beautiful, consistent, and controlled flare in the image, whilst maintaining contrast and avoiding transmission loss.

With an 8K support and unique X-coating technology, the lenses and internal light reflections can be effectively controlled to create a distinctive look.

They maximise the delicate emotions of the subject and show rich depiction. Xeen Meister lenses are colour-matched across the full range and feature super-bright T-stops of T1.3. The 13 aperture blades produce excellent low light performance and beautiful bokeh. PL-mount versions also include the i Technology protocol, whereby users with compatible cameras can see and record lens metadata such as focal length, aperture and focus distance.
