And now it’s official: The new Samyang Cine lens line “XEEN” has been announced. And full specs and preorder are available at BHphoto:
Rokinon Xeen 24mm T1.5 Lens (Click here).
Rokinon Xeen 50mm T1.5 Lens (Click here).
Rokinon Xeen 85mm T1.5 Lens (Click here).

There is also a first impression review at BH Explora (Click here):

I found the Rokinon XEEN Cine Lenses to be well made, easy to work with, and overall I enjoyed the image quality. They rendered naturalistic images with good contrast and a pleasing, slightly warm feel. Intercutting between the lenses required no additional color correction beyond applying the same LUT to the footage. It is my preference to shoot more closed down than wide open, and I did feel the lenses performed best starting around T4, but I was still satisfied with footage shot at T1.5. Overall, I was pleased with the XEEN lenses and look forward to working with them again.

A7rII aftermath. Jonathan asks: “A-Mount Loyalists…Will you switch?”

Sometimes A-mount owners blame me for not reporting enough A-mount news. But the truth is there is simply little to tell yet. I rarely get A-mount rumors and as you have seen Sony did not introduce any new A-mount camera the last 15 months (and only two “updated” A-mount lenses). So here we are: Jonathan on SonyAlphaForum puts on table the big question: After the A7rII launch…A-Mount Loyalists…Will you switch?

I was a loyal A-mount user, waiting, and waiting for an update to my a99. The A7R2 was just too good to pass up, and the fact that I didn’t have to sell all my A-mount lenses was a bonus (still using my Sigma fisheye and 500mm, and Zeiss 135 f/1.8). So, money not being an issue, why would an A-mount user not cross over to FE at this point?

So here is the poll:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

A7rII preorder list:
In USA: at Amazon, BHphoto, AdoramaSonyStore US, FocusCamera, Uniquephoto.
In Europe at Sony DEUK, FR, IT, ES, NL, BE, CH, AT, SE, FI, NO, PT. Wex UK.
In Asia at Digitalrev, CameraPro.
