At IBC 2022, XEEN announced a new Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 2x cine lens. This full frame PL mount 2x Anamorphic lens was designed specifically for high-end digital cinematography.
After being de-squeezed, the XEEN Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 lens covers a 2.55:1 original cinematic cope ratio in a 35mm full-frame sensor.
The lens has 15 aperture blades and a 300-degree focus rotation. The close focus ability is 1m / 3.3′.
Despite featuring some carbon fiber parts the lens isn’t light and it tips the scales at 3.9kg / 8.5lb.
The lens has a 114mm front diameter so it can easily be used with industry-standard matte boxes.
XEEN has applied luminous coatings to the marking of the lens so they are easy to see in dark conditions.
There are bi-directional scales on the lens so that both the focus and aperture markings can be seen on both sides of the lens.
Price & Availability
The XEEN Anamorphic 50mm T2.3 2x retails for $19,999 USD and it is now available to pre-order. I would expect more focal lengths will be announced in the future.
