Meike Super35-Prime Cine 50mm T2.1 Reviews

Good Lens - Susceptible to Bad Lens Flares

By Justin
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-24

I picked this lens up after I got the Meike 35mm which was a GREAT lens for its price. After being so impressed with their 35mm I was hoping the 50mm would be a good pickup to pair with it. Unfortunately I discovered that this lens is VERY prone to some nasty looking lens flares (see attached image), even with indoor lighting, that can render a shot useless. It's basically a requirement to shoot with a lens hood for this lens in any lighting conditions, which is a huge drawback for me. The quality of the lens is great apart from the tendency to flare, so if you don't mind always using a lens hood, this is still a good choice of lens.

A steal at twice the price...miles better than anticipated.

So far, I can't seem to find much wrong with this lens. It's not just a great cinema lens under 1000.00, it's a great cinema lens, period-and I have hands-on experience with a HUGE variety of lenses from every price range. Perfectly sharp, near-zero breathing, CA is well controlled (but, yes, there is a tiny bit.) All that in a very well engineered, professional housing with smooth-as-silk action on both gears and a lovely compact form factor. Ordered the 35mm this week, and will order the 75 as soon as it's in stock. I'm actually saddened that they're not making a 24 or 18 of this lens, that's how much I like it. Super glass at a super price point.

Good lens

Seems like a decent lens. Feels built well. Haven't had a chance to give it a field beating yet. So we will see!

Perfect beginner cine lens

I was in the market for cine lenses and while doing research I stumbled across this lens. It was delivered quickly and I took it out the box and immediately fell in love with the design and the build quality. The long focus throw makes focusing so much easier for both handheld and focus pullers. I took the lens on a shoot the first day I got it and the image I got out of the lens was stellar. I had worked with 50mm lenses in the past but this lens has a very nice look to it. The shoot went well and I quickly adapted to the difference in focus throw when focusing on moving subjects. I took the lens out on a wedding photoshoot and surprisingly it did very well! Normally you want good autofocus for weddings, especially the one I was at, but with a little help from the focus assist on my camera, I was able to keep focus on the subjects the whole time. If you combine the T2.1 aperture with slow motion, you can get some absolutely dreamy shots with this lens. It's at the perfect focal length where you can get close to a subject and it won't look distorted, but can also serve as a bit of an establishing shot lens. Overall, 5 out of 5 star rating. Don't pass up on this lens.

Asked by: Johnny
Although the Meike the 50mm T2.1 Super 35 Cine Prime Lens will fit onto the ZCAM E2-M4 w/.71x speed booster, you will see vignetting since the lens is not a full frame lens, but rather a Super35 lens.

Since this is designed to cover a Super 35 sensor, does this mean it would not have the typical 1.4-1.6x crop factor? I am planning on buying the Bmpcc 6k Pro and am concerned with the increasing crop factor when shooting RAW in resolutions under 6k.
Asked by: Michael
The crop factor is determined by the size of the sensor not the design of the lens. The fact that this lens is designed for super35 means that it will not work well larger sensor cameras (such as Full Frame or Medium Format).
