We begin a Rokinon Trilogy of posts today, starting with the new condition Rokinon Xeen 24mm T1.5 professional CINE lens on sale for $1900 and earning 10% promotional rewards (about $190 to be spent in future purchases) at B&H Photo and Adorama in the Canon and Nikon SLR systems, the M43rds and Sony E mirrorless systems, and the video-friendly PL mount.
PS: the same price is available at Amazon but no 10% promotional rewards.
For fans of the PL Mount, B&H Photo is offering the new condition Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro and URSA 4K PL Cinema Camera Kit for $6490 with free expedited shipping for a limited time… This is among the latest Featured sales over there…
Prime time is Tea time, it’s a new video-priority lens from Rokinon, the Xeen 135mm T2.2 is now available for pre-order for $2500 at B&H Photo in the Canon and Nikon DSLR mounts, the Sony E and M43rds mirrornyet mounts, and since it is a video-priority lens, the PL mount too… This has been added to the Interesting Cameras and Lenses of 2016 Tracking page…
The NAB specials are running in all directions, here’s another one. If you are a fan of Tokina’s Cinema T-lenses (yes, they make those too), there is a sale on nine of those lenses at B&H Photo with the Canon EF, PL, and M43rds mounts represented with various T3.0 zooms and other lenses. They also earn 4% promotional rewards.
Most of the NAB Specials at B&H expire on 4/21/16 PM, and that’s when the B&H offices will close until 5/1/16, so factor that in your purchase planning.
For the price of a used Honda Civic (not fact-checked with the Blue Book) you can get a five-pack of Rokinon Xeen Cine lenses for $9,995 with free shipping from Adorama. The 5-packs are available in the Canon and Nikon SLR mounts, the PL-mount and the Sony E and M43rds mirrorless systems. The lenses are the 14mm T3.1, and four T1.5s, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm. The lenses go for $2500 on their own.
The previously mentioned deal has now gone live. You can get all three Rokinon Xeen T1.5 Cine lenses (24mm, 50mm, 85mm) for $5985 if you buy them together as a bundle in the same mount at Adorama. This is thanks to a $1500 off combined purchase discount, vs a $300 off discount if you buy each lens on its own. It is available in the Canon and Nikon DSLR mounts, the Sony E-mount, Micro Four Thirds, and PL mount.
