Walimex were displaying their new cinema style 16mm lens at IBC. What sets it apart from other budget minded options is the super fast T2.2 (basically f2) maximum aperture. This makes it an affordable wide angle APS-C option that is almost a full f-stop brighter than most of the competition.

Like all Walimex/Samyang/Rokinon cine lenses it is the same optics as the regular stills lenses but with geared focus and aperture rings.
