Meike has officially announced its fourth full-frame cine lens, the 24mm T2.1. The 24mm joins the 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm T2.1 lenses to complete a basic four lens set.

The 24mm, like all of the other focal lengths in the series, covers an image circle of 45mm and it features industry-standard 0.8mm pitch gears on the focus and aperture rings.
