XEEN ROKINON HURLBUT ACADEMY B&H SALE

This B&H Kit of seven Xeen Cinema Lenses includes the 14, 16, 24, 35, 50, 85, and 135mm lenses. This provides you with a full, color-matched set of lenses that cover full frame and are fitted with PL mounts. The lenses feature an internal focus design, which means that the front of the lens doesn’t rotate as you change focus, and the lens maintains a constant volume. Dual-sided focus marks make it easier on your camera assistant working on either side of the camera, and the 200° of focus barrel rotation provides ample real estate for precision marking.

Each lens incorporates built-in, cinema-style focus and iris gears that share common positions, making for fast lens changes. The 24, 35, 50, and 85mm lenses feature a maximum aperture of T1.5 and an 11-bladed iris. The 14mm features a maximum aperture of T3.1 and has a 9-bladed iris, while the 16mm features a T2.6 maximum aperture and an 11-bladed iris. The 135mm is still fast at T2.2 and incorporates an 11-bladed iris. As these are cinema lenses, the iris is designed to be clickless, allowing smooth aperture pulls.
