Meike Full Frame Cinema Lenses Review

Meiki is an interesting option in the budget cinema lens space.  We’ve been waiting for someone to review their full frame offerings so thank you to Spenser Sakurai for doing that:

Meike Announces the 75mm T2.1 Cine Lens (APS-C/Super 35)

  • EF or PL mount
  • 70cm minimum focusing distance
