Meike Hints at ‘Full Frame’ aka 35mm and Super 35 Cinema Lenses Coming Soon
While researching for my previous article on the ever-growing Meike Cinema Primes collection of manual ciné lenses for Micro Four Thirds, Sony E and Fujifilm X mount cameras, some images of other possible upcoming new lenses caught my eye.
Given the praise that Blackmagic Design’s 6K raw-capable Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K aka BMPCC 6K is receiving, it appears to be a more attractive alternative to the smaller sensor-equipped BMPCC 4K provided it is used with so-called “full frame” or 35mm sensor lenses, or lenses designed for motion picture industry standard Super 35 cameras.
I will be intrigued to see what focal lengths Meike will be releasing in these formats, how good they are and how affordably they may be priced.
