Meike FF-Prime Cine 35mm T2.1 Reviews

Best Value in Cine primes period!

By Jason
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-27

It has very very little if any breathing... almost no CA a full 330 rotation on focus covers a huge 45mm image circle and on my Red Gemini Looks fantastic...not over sharp like like my old Sigma art photo glass. - plus its proper metal housing has screw in filter options but I use a MB. You ca NOT go wrong here this punches well above its weight class. And unlike DZO Vespid does force you into a look- they have a very neutral look similar to lenses ive used like the Schnieder Xenon's for PL mount Cine these are a steal all 3 (yes I bought all 3 current avail 35-50-85)

Amazing Lens for price 1 issue

This lens is an amazing value, I love the look out of this lens, good bokeh, the sharpness renders as a detailed image instead of digital sharpness which is part of the appeal of a cinema lens, focus is smooth with almost no breathing, build quality is great......with the exception of the filter thread at the front which is terrible, it appears there are just lines there with no thread pattern.....none of my 82mm filters thread on the front, they will thread on a half spin and get jammed.....very irritating when you don't normally use matte boxes....

Quite a nice lens

I actually bought this 35mm Full Frame lens with their 3 set. And I use it on my Sony FX9 for small budget projects. On a Full Frame sensor, I do find myself using this 35mm often. With so many manufacturers offering cinema lenses at these price points, I think Meike definitely did a very good job with this lens. Build wise, its a very solid lens. All metal. The colour choices of the focus and aperture ring are very easy to read and the red ring on the back is a nice touch. I really like the PL mount on this lens as well, very solid doesn't feel like it will have issues on me. Some odd things to me, the lens support foot that comes as a piece in the kit really is quite small and honestly for my rails and such, really doesn't work. I just use a more universal lens holder. There is no AC side to the lens, just one side of readings. If anyone cares about that. Just a note. The long barrel for focus is great. Quality of picture from the lens: - Chromatic Aberration is well controlled. - Breathing also very well controlled. I really don't notice it on real world shoots. - The flares are nice, the ghost flare happens easily but can be controlled with a mattebox. Overall I am very happy with this lens hopefully in time the whole set will be available. At the moment of this review, only the 35'50'85 are available.
