A bright Fujifilm X mount cine prime, the 25mm T2.2 Manual Focus Cinema Lens from Meike is a versatile lens suitable for high-resolution cine cameras. The T2.2 maximum aperture enables working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field. In harsh lighting conditions, a multilayer coating is also used to reduce flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy. This manual focus lens permits working with subjects as close as 9.8" away, and a printed focusing scale aids with pre-focusing techniques.

Meike MK-25mm T2.2 Cine Reviews
A requirement for weddings
I first purchased a 12mm and purchased this one second. I'm more than happy with both lenses. Very cinematic feel and a nice weight in my hands. After shooting 2 weddings using this with my gh5 I'm happy.
Just came in today. I have to say it's not an ARRI Signature Prime. So, take this with a grain of salt. I say that many of you are like me, our budget is not in that league. For the price super sharp. The throw is nice and a real solid build. Amazing lens for the price and now I will be adding more to my bag.
Paired with my Pocket 4K
I’ve been using this on my Blackmagic Pocket 4K and love it! Pulling focus and T stops are super smooth. The image quality is great for my purposes. Very cinematic... Meaning that it’s not the sharpest image but that’s what I like in a cine lens.
While I didn't order this lens from B&H, I wanted to leave my thoughts here regardless so that I can maybe help others. At the time I'm writing this, it's been almost a year of having this lens, and I can honestly and objectively say, this is my favorite lens that I've used with my Blackmagic Pocket 4K. It's excellent. Optically beautiful. While it has a more flat look than other cine lenses with more character, I don't have a lot of money to rent lenses for projects, so owning a lens that can behave like a chameleon is great. I can use this lens as a base, and then design the look of the project with lighting or post-production. Technically it's also great, with basically no focus breathing and low chromatic aberration (still present, but easy to correct). Build quality is great. The only true competitor is Rokinon, which are plastic. This lens is built like a tank, with a metal housing, nice 77mm filter thread, and buttery-smooth focus and aperture gears. It's small and compact, which helps keep my rig minimal, but if I want to build it out with a matte box and follow focus, I can because of its standard cine-style design. There's a couple quirks, but they're minimal. The lens caps are a bit odd. On the front cap, I would prefer a slip-on design like other cine lenses, but this has a squeeze/clip-on design similar to still lenses. The rear cap is strange too, it only attaches in one specific way. It's hard to explain, but I have to fiddle with it to get it to stay, which is inconvenient when I'm in a rush or in the dark. Overall, this is an excellent lens, and I plan on getting a couple more in the lineup to complete my set. I have zero regrets purchasing this, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a budget-friendly choice that feels and performs better than Rokinon. Sorry for the long review! I just had a lot to say. Bonus points if you read it all. Have a great day, everyone.
This cine lens is worth every penny
After using this lens right out of the box and on a shoot, I am impressed to say the least. For the value compared to the smooth focus, and the image quality, for the money, is the best I've seen in lower price range cine lenses.
So far so good.
Bought this for my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema for live broadcasting and needed a nice prime. Happy with it so far.
I really like this lens, but....
The Meike 25mm is a solid lens, it's built well (surprisingly sturdy) has great image quality, I use this lens for client work, there's such a professional texture/tone to it and it's definitely noticeable when you use this lens. Now that all of my gushing is out of the way, the not so great is here. When you towards towards an intense light source, like the sun, there is some very noticeable chromatic apparition happening around your subject matter that may ruin you footage. Some reviewers noted that it wasn't bad, which is true, it only ever happens during very specific shoots, but when it does, just be cautious of that. Second and final complaint is that sometimes the lens refuses to dismount, I use it on the BMPCC4k and I don't have this issue with any other lens, but for whatever reason I'll try removing it, but it will just jam, which when this happened the first time, I almost had a heart attack. But that issue may be specific to me, who knows, I haven't seen this issue anywhere else, by anyone else. Recap: PRO'S: Great build quality, great image, spherical bokeh, fantastic focus ring (so smooth). CON'S: Chromatic apparitions in specific lighting situations, sometimes jams trying to remove from camera. I do recommend the Meike 25mm, just be cautious of the con's. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
I love my Meike lenses
I now have a 16mm, 25mm and a 35mm Meike lens. Great DoF. The gears turn very smoothly and don't have any play in them. The lens has a snug fit on my GH5S.
