Rokinon Unveils Xeen CF Lenses

The full-frame cine lenses utilize carbon fiber rather than metal for a sturdier, lighter design.

Rokinon has announced Xeen CF Professional Cine Lenses, full-frame cine lenses that utilize carbon fiber rather than metal for a sturdier, lighter design.

With an average weight of 2.1 pounds and length of 3.6" in PL mount for the 24mm, 50mm and 85mm models, the lenses offer exceptional compatibility and flexible operation with equipment such as drones and gimbals.

Rokinon Xeen CF lenses support the large image sensors and 8K capability of the latest cinema cameras. The X-coating technology, optical design, bright T1.5 aperture and 11-blade diaphragm can be effectively controlled to create distinctive looks and produce excellent low-light performance and beautiful bokeh.

Additional new features are a smaller common front diameter of 95mm and luminous, glow-in-the-dark markings for easy operation in low-light conditions.

True cine-lens features include unified focus and aperture gear positions for easier follow-focus use, tight color matching, dual calibrated right and left side distance and T-stop scales, and smooth movement of the geared focusing and aperture controls.

The Rokinon Xeen CF 24mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5, and 85mm T1.5 will be available in PL, Sony E and Canon EF mounts in November. The 16mm T2.6 and 35mm T1.5 models will ship in 2020.
