      Thanks, there's really nothing bad I can point out in terms of image quality. They're sharp, show no intrusive CA, have good flare control, a smooth lens flare characteristic, good color matching, etc..

      Yeah the size is a negative for sure, I don't take these on run and guns.

      • Very good price for the complete set, very good performance. For smaller and lighter lenses with very good performance, I've gone with the set of SLR Magic APO lenses. Currently only 25mm, 50mm, 85mm with a 32mm coming in the 4th quarter I expect and more next year.

          Recently we acquired a new Sony CineAlta 25mm T2 prime lens (latest version) and were blown away by how nice this lens is. So much so we just ordered a full set of 6. We primarily shot on Pockets, and this CineAlta was amazing. Reminded me of a perfect mix of a Zeiss UltraPrime and a Cooke S4 - very sharp but not clinically so. Beautiful focus falloff. No CA whatsoever. None. When we tested the 25mm Sony against a 24mm Xeen it was clear the Sony lens was superior in every way.

          I'll post some video this week.

          Okay, all this blathering is getting to a point: If you're considering getting a set of Xeen's you MUST check out the Sony CineAlta's first - they're only fractionally more expensive than the Xeen's and are vastly superior in every way.

          And just to clarify, I'm talking about the latest version of the CineAlta's, not to be confused with the first version, which were mostly plastic.

          Can't wait to use these CineAlta's on our new 4.6k's.
          I agree, I have the full set of six - the first three (35, 50,85) are the v1 plastic and the second three (20, 25,135) are the Cinealta 4K metal housing. The plastic ones are actually very good as well - same optics just plastic housings. The downside of the plastic is that they are not as robust to deal with rough handling over time, but the upside is they are much, much lighter so nice for handheld, gimbal work etc.. Mine are brand new as of a couple months ago and would be happy to rent them out if someone wants to try them out.

          • Here's the test I did with these lenses. I really love the Bokeh and shaprness. Mostly 20mm, 25mm, and some 35mm. You can also see two Bladelights in action. Really love those lights.

            • More Cinealta Porn. The cam and lens comes in at about 9.5lbs, just under the Helix Jr's weight limit of 10-12lbs.

                • Came across this detailed lens test comparing the SCL lens to Cooke S4, Zeiss Compact Prime and Arri Ultra Prime lenses.

                  https://www.kamerawerk.ch/data/image...Kamerawerk.pdf

                  The tested Sony SCL PL Mount prime lenses have shown great imaging characteristics.
                  Contrast performance, sharpness and chromatic aberration are equal if not even better
                  compared to its competitor lenses Cooke S4, Arri Ultra Prime or Zeiss Compact Prime.
                  As illustrated in the fi gure above, SCL 135mm, 25mm and 20mm actually show best mean
                  MTF characteristics of all lenses!
