Jonah Rubash of Magnanimous Media
has put together a detailed comparison between these cine prime lenses:
- Schneider Xenon FF
- Canon CN-E
- Zeiss CP.2
- Canon L Series (Not exactly cine but a great benchmark nonetheless)
This video compares the resolution of four different lenses Canon L as a base with Canon CN-E, Zeiss CP2, and the new Schneider Xenons…. Shot on the Sony F55.
This video compares how four different popular lenses render skin-tone, Canon L as a base with Canon CN-E, Zeiss CP2, and the new Schneider Xenons. Shooting 16bit linear RAW with the Sony F55 seemed to be our best bet in grabbing the most color depth. We used daylight balanced Kino Flos to independently light each subject to a T22 at a 270º shutter. In order to keep the test neutral we used a light meter to calculate our desired shutter for each T/F stop. We only used shutter angle adjustments to change our exposure, no ND was used.
The videos are only part of the story. Read the full comparison with detailed charts and analysis here.
