New Item - Rokinon Xeen Lenses
This week we've added the Rokinon Xeen series of lenses to our expanding lineup of cinematic lenses. With focal lengths ranging from 14mm up to 85mm, these lenses should be a welcome addition to just about any production.
On the surface, the specs of these lenses look very similar to the existing Rokinon prime lenses we carry, and they do have some similarities. While the Rokinon DS series we have are great for the money, these lenses are much better geared (no pun intended) for cinema use. Each lens is multi-coated for excellent contrast and flare control. They are all factory color matched as well, allowing every individual lens to be very close to one another with very minimal color shift. The apertures also have 11-blades compared to the 8 of the Rokinon DS series for excellent highlights and very smooth bokeh.
The biggest difference in the Xeen's comes from the construction. All of the lenses have a robust metal housing with focus and T-stop scales on both sides of the lens. The position of the iris and focus controls are in the same place on all of the lenses, and they all share the same common 114mm front diameter. This makes changing the lenses out in a rig (Like the Redrock DSLR Cinema Bundle or Redrock Mini Studio Rig) almost seamless since you don't have to re-position follow focus controls or matte box donuts to accommodate.
The Rokinon Xeen's are available now in PL mount. We have also added an adapter from Wooden Camera to go from PL to the Sony E-Mount, allowing you to use these on cameras like the FS7, FS5, or even the A7S II.
