    At $2500 a lens may as well get Sigmas

    Nick,



    Maybe you're paying for the carbon fiber material more than anything.

    they should have tweaked the optical design so they wouldn’t be so soft.

    Nice housing

    The XEEN CFs might be capable little lenses but the Sigmas will hold their value much better than the XEENs ever will.

    Also, the Sigmas will have some rental value. Whereas the XEENs won't so much.

    Although, overall a step in the right direction for XEEN.

    They remind me of the Celere HS lenses.

    So they literally only have a single stripe of composite Carbon Fiber and they call them "CF" 😂
