Samyang Announce XEEN 20mm T1.9

A global optics brand Samyang Optics announces a new XEEN 20mm T1.9 lens for professional video-cine. This lens brings the range of XEEN cinema lenses to eight and complements the existing lenses: 14mm, 16mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 135mm. The new XEEN 20mm offers outstanding image quality from resolving power for 4K+ production for filming video and cinema.

XEEN is a specialized brand of professional video-cine lenses launched by Samyang Optics in 2015. The XEEN series are designed for the ultra-high definition video environment and feature outstanding optical performance for 4K and above. The lenses also feature X-Coating Technology and 11 aperture blades that help create beautiful and round bokeh to introduce emotional and natural expression.

The 24mm x 36mm negative size allows XEEN lenses to not only work with full frame cameras, but also Super 35, APS-C, APS-H and APS-P cameras. XEEN lenses are available in five different mounts – PL, EF, F, E, and MFT – and two different focus scales – metric and imperial units. All focus and iris gear rings are identically positioned among eight lenses to speed up the lens changes.
