Meike FF-Prime Cine 50mm T2.1 Reviews

BEST value in CINEMA - FULLSTOP

I have all 3 of the available PL mount versions of these lenses. I used on 2 proffesional shoots and WOW WOW WOW - I still cant get over the IQ for the price but with only 1 gripe---lets get out of way-- (no focus marks on AC side) not a big deal using FF on op side typically or remote FF if I have an AC so its not really an issue) If you are looking here you like consider the DZO Vespid line. TRUE they have a full set. However they have a very vintage look with oval bokeh and bad CA(on a few focal lengths) Those are smaller lighter and MARGNIALLY sharper true) however these lens have very little CA very little if any breathing depending on FL- propper full 330 rotation on focus, they are bigger but still small- However dont look SILLY on my RED like the Vespids do. I cant say this enough MEIKE hit a homerun here and I have ZERO regrets. Just wish the whole set was already available (24mm coming end of NOV 21) ---you cant go wrong here.

Quite a nice lens

So I picked up the Full Frame 50mm along with their 3 lens kit. Used on my Sony FX9. This was the first of their lenses released for this Full Frame campaign. I wish they would have released them all at once, but eh, oh well. With so many manufacturers offering full frame lenses at this price point, I really like what Meike released here. The character of the images looks very good. Many things are well controlled on the lens, from Chromatic Aberration to Focus breathing. Hardly notice those characters on a real world project. Noticeable on a test chart, but still well controlled. The all metal construction is great and a very solid piece. If I were to point out any cons for people to thing about: - Its a bit heavy then other options on the market - No AC side, if you care for that. - The support foot is a bit dinky. But overall, I am very happy with my investment in these lenses at this price point. And are great for when a production doesn't have budget to rent higher end lenses. But I also am confident these lenses would do great on any budget project.
