Meike 35mm Cine EF lens
When I was first thinking about purchasing this lens I was very conflicted as I thought to myself, is this a legit cinema lens, should I purchase a DZOFilm prime or zoom lens? At one point i was leaning heavily toward a DZOFilm prime set that is until they upped their prices. That was a sign for me to move on and find other options. I was still extremely hesitant about buying a Meike lens for the simple reason I had not heard of the brand before but looking at youtube videos of the lens it looked very solid and got really good reviews.
After about a month of looking for different cine lenses I finally bit the bullet and purchased this lens. I must say that I am extremely impressed with the characteristics of this lens. On the Panasonic Eva 1 the highlights are very soft even with photo lenses but it seems as if the Meike lens gave this camera a completely different look that was extremely cinematic. The lens took on a warmer tone compared to my Sigma 24-70 or 18-35. The highlight roll off was so buttery smooth I feel like I should never take this lens off of my camera. I havent tried this lens on the S1H yet but I will be trying it out soon.
Im definitely going to be purchasing the 24mm, 50mm, and 85mm Meike cine lenses as well. All in all I can definitely say this was a very good purchase.
