Today we are doing a XEEN lens comparison test with the 14mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm XEEN lenses. We’re going to compare these lenses with the Canon CN-E, Zeiss CP.2, and our Cooke S4 lenses. To do this, we rigged it up so that we have all four cameras rolling at the same time, each with a different lens so that they could have the same exposure and light. There are also c-stands in the shots so that we can see how much the stands bend to gauge the distortion quality of these lenses. To test our colors and contrast, we have my Neutral Day Interior LUT that I used on Into the Badlands loaded in, and we’re going to see how the different lenses handle bokeh, color, contrast, and resolving power. These lenses all have their unique qualities, and we are going to see how they compare with breathing as well.

I give you an exclusive wrap up of what I saw, what I liked and didn’t like, so be sure to watch the video at the end of this article.
