Samyang Announce New Affordable 135mm T2.2 Cine Prime Lens

Well-known budget lens manufacturer Samyang just announced their latest 135mm T2.2 Cine Prime, which is the latest addition to their XEEN cine prime lens range. For those who have already upgraded to shooting in 4K or even higher resolutions, using proper cine lenses is key as pulling focus with stills lenses in high resolutions can be quite challenging.


The new XEEN 135mm T2.2 is a very welcomed and expected telephoto addition to the existing five XEEN's (14mm T3.1, 24mm T1.5, 35mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5 and 85mm T1.5) and just like the rest of the XEEN cine primes, the new 135mm T2.2 offers cinematographers and filmmakers outstanding image quality from resolving power for 4K+ production for filming video and cinema.

  • Fast T2.2 aperture
  • X-coating
  • Designed Specifically for Video
  • 114mm Front Size

The XEEN lenses offer not just APS-C and Super 35 sensor coverage, but also full-frame 35mm (36mm x 24mm) coverage for those using cameras like the Canon 5D Mark III or Sony A7sII.
