I've never used these, and review are a bit mixed on them, but at this price it's a hell of a bargain. Schneider-Kreuznach is offering 60% off their Xenon FF-line of lenses. That means you get the kit of 25, 35, 50, 75 and 100 for 7.950 Euro (original price 17.210 Euro). Add the 18 in the mix and it's 11.540 (original price 22.708 Euro). This means you now can get a set of new cine primes with five lenses for under 8000 Euro, which is insane. I do not know if they're thinking of discontinuing the line, or if this is just a stunt to get more people into this eco-system. They don't seem very popular so both seem like they could be probable causes. From what I've seen and what I know these are perfectly acceptable lenses. Nothing special and maybe a bit much CA wide open. Not as sharp as Sigma primes, but on par with say the CP.2s and Canon CN-Es. Lower contrast that all those and not much breathing. These are made ground up for cine use and have a 14 blade aperture. Might be a bit slow for some who need a prime at 1.4/1.5, but fast enough for most things. Available in PL(M), EF(M) OR SONY (M). Anyone have hands on experience with these for those who might want to invest in these now while they're on sale? Offer valid until 31st of July. https://schneiderkreuznach.com/de/xenonffprime_promotion
