    Every year it seems like there's a new player in the low-cost cine-lens game. This year, it's a company from Taiwan called Bokkelux.

    They only had a couple of prototype lenses at the booth, but they're making full-frame cinema lenses in a variety of mounts (EF, PL, E-Mount, and others), and promising resolution to match 8K acquisition. All the lenses will be T2.0 at the fast end, and they're working on 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm focal lengths.

    Here's a link to some sample footage they shot with a prototype.

    They say the lenses will be available in September, at a cost of less than $2,000 per lens. Worth keeping an eye on for sure.

    I wonder why the housings look like Schneider Xenons and the focal lengths, coverage and apertures are also the same as the Schneiders.

    Maybe they're rehousing Schneiders to Bokkelux? :P

    Yeah, maybe their losing money on each lens but the will be recognised as "Schneider like quality", later on silently swappings schneiders inside for some yongnuo optics and make zilions on them! :P

    BTW, I'm not claiming anything here, I just made an observation.
