Throughout my career, I’ve always been intrigued by cinema lenses. These expensive, exotic, and mechanically sublime feats of engineering are truly noteworthy products. This is why I jumped at the opportunity to do this hands-on review of the Rokinon XEEN cinema lenses. Compared to the majority of cinema lenses, these are very reasonably priced and available in a variety of mounts. These two qualities, along with solid optical metrics, make these lenses very popular among owner-operators producing high-quality video and film.
With high-quality video now standard in DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, a number of hybrid stills/video shooters have popped up. Unfortunately, video and photography have different concerns when it comes to lens selection, and since most of us can’t fork out the dough for two separate lens sets, it is fortunate that lens manufacturers have been working to fill the need of hybrid shooters. If you want lenses that can work for stills and filmmaking, here’s a list of appealing options.
It is probably safe to say that many of us photographers have, either with our cameras or smartphones, tried to capture a close-up image of an insect, flower, toy, or other object. We have an idea of what we want this photograph to look like as we prepare to capture the image. We have seen and admired beautiful close-up images before but, when we nose the camera lens up to the object, the camera balks—it cannot focus close enough to create the image we want to capture.
