Xeen CF 135mm T2.2 key features

Carbon fibre build – compact & flexible
8K & cinematic look
Outstanding usability

Carbon fibre build – compact & flexible

Carbon fibre is lightweight without sacrificing durability. The lens is designed to be small and light so it can be mounted on numerous cameras and used in a variety of environments.

8K & cinematic look

The lens has outstanding resolution, capable of supporting a large image sensor up to 8K. It also offers
beautiful bokeh with a bright T2.2 aperture, maximising the emotions of an image while richly depicting the shot.


Samyang’s proprietary X-Coating technology controls the reflection of light inside the lens itself to create a distinctive look, properly utilising flares and ghosting to create dramatic effects.

Outstanding Usability

The front aperture (95mm), focus and aperture ring gear positions are unified, making it easy to attach and detach lens accessories such as matte box and follow-focus. In addition, the ultra-bright luminous font is convenient for use in dark environments.

The entire Xeen CF range will be on show at the IBC exhibition in Amsterdam, Netherlands from 9th to 12th September 2022, booth number 12.G44.
