Samyang has released pricing and some new footage for its 50mm T2.3 XEEN Anamorphic and XEEN T1.3 Meister Primes. If you were expecting the usual Samyang / Rokinon pricing then you are going to be in for a shock.

The Samyang 50mm T2.3 XEEN Anamorphic retails for 19,999 USD. At the time of the announcement, I estimated that the lens may be priced around \$ 4- \$ 5K. This is clearly being targeted at a completely different audience than I was expecting. At \$ 20K, this lens is designed to go head-to-head with offerings from Cooke and companies such as P + S Technik.

The XEEN T1.3 MEISTER Primes that come in focal lengths of 35,50, and 85mm are all 8,495 USD each. At this price, they are in direct competition with lenses such as the Tokina Vista Primes and the Canon Sumire primes.

It is interesting to see that Samyang / Rokinon is trying to move into a different sector of the market with the XEEN series.
