CF stands for compact and flexible, which highlights the compact size and versatility of the lenses. The goal when designing the Xeen CF lenses was to make a cinematic lens so small and compact as possible without compromise in any ways that would lower the quality.
The 135mm focal length is often chosen for portraits and close-ups. Thanks to the lightweight design of the lens it is perfect for the modern filmmaker that wants to combine it with a camera on a gimbal or drone. With a lightweight lens, it becomes easier to balance a gimbal or drone and therefore increase battery and production time.
Xeen CF series comes with a great optical construction which minimizes focus breathing, supports 8K resolution and gives a cinematic look with outstanding detail reproduction. The great aperture of T2.2 delivers a beautiful bokeh, shallow depth of field and excellent low light performance. Featuring 11 rounded aperture blades, the lens produces a soft and dreamlike bokeh wide open and a crystal-clear crisp sharpness when stopped down. It adds an artistic touch to the film and creates a sense of soft dimension with incredible bokeh, perfect for out-of-focus portrait. Thanks to Samyang’s unique X-coating, light reflections and ghosting effects are effectively minimized.
