Rokinon Announces New XEEN 135mm T2.2 Lens, Adding to Their Growing CINE Lens System

Rokinon has just released their latest XEEN CINE lens, the 135mm T2.2. This lens grows their CINE Lens System to a total of six lenses.


This Full Manual, Full Frame lens offers a lightweight, all metal design, along with an 11-blade aperture diaphragm to help you produce beautiful bokeh, along with a fast f/2.2 maximum aperture for great low-light performance.

Like most of their lenses, the new XEEN 135mm T2.2 is available for various camera lens mount systems, including Sony E-mount, Canon EF/EF-S, Nikon F, and even Olympus/Panasonic Micro Four Thirds mounts.

While being geared more towards cinematographers, with high-quality, 6K ready optics, these lenses will also perform well for still image photographers looking for a mild telephoto lens.

This new lens is scheduled to start shipping in August (2016), with a suggested retail price of only $2495 USD. See their official press release below for more details.
