Meike MK-12mm T2.2 Cine Reviews

Great budget wide angle lens

By Michael
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-03

For anyone looking to do some serious indie filmmaking or short films or videography or even just YouTube recordings, this lens is really good to capture your entire scene. It is on an mft mount so be aware on a Gh5 or bmpcc4k it's closer to a 24mm but all you really need is a good 24mm prime for solid wide angle shots

Wonderful

This is my first Meike lens and it has been a great experience. The MFT mount is solid on the camera, focus and aperture ring is smooth and the lens produces really nice clean images. Built quality is also top notch. The one thing i'm not a fan of is the Front Lens Cap it comes with, i will be swapping that out for a Simmod slip on cap. Will be purchasing the 16 & 25mm in the near future.

Great Value, Great Lens

Beautiful Images on BMCCC 4k, Very Well Built and a better than average lens cap! Great Value !

Excellent choice now that Veydra is gone

Everybody using an MFT camera for filmmaking (especially those with the Blackmagic Pocket 4K), should have a set of Cinema Prime lenses. Zooms are for the 'Instagram Generation.' If you are going to make narratives you need a firm grasp of film grammar. Prime lenses are the fundamentals of film grammar. For a while Veydra had the high ground on MFT primes, but they have left this earth, never to return. Now Meike has stepped up with their set of Cinema Prime Lenses. They are actually really good, and the prices are incredibly low for the build quality and image sharpness. The 12mm Prime is an excellent lens - it is in the medium focal length range with an MFT camera. It works very well with my Blackmagic 4K camera. I plan on acquiring a full set soon.

Awesome Wide Lens for the Blackmagic 4K

I was trying to find a video prime lens that could give me a nice wide angle on the Blackmagics's m43 mount. This does the trick! Very little distortion, sharp enough, great color rendering.

Excellent wide-angle lens

Optically, it is excellent corner to corner, even open all the way at T/2.2. By T/2.8, it's pretty much perfect (at least for 4K video requirements). Barrel distortion, chromatic aberration, and distortion in general are all minimal. The focus and aperture gears move smoothly with the perfect amount of resistance. This lens is built very solidly - feels great to handle. However, be warned, because it is so solid it is fairly large and heavy. If you are hoping to have a tiny wide-angle lens with a small front element on a small MFT sensor, this isn't the lens for you.

Great for BMPCC

Great for BMPCC, the wide angle works well for the MFT crop.
