Hands on With the New NiSi Full Frame Primes

The affordable Full Frame Cine Prime competition heats up with the new NiSi Primes.

We finally got a chance to get hands on with the new NiSi Cine primes at Cinegear 2018 this year. They are based on the mechanical designs by Bokkelux, a company we were excited about last year at NAB 2017 but who disappeared. Well, it turns out that NiSi bought the optical designs, brought their extensive experience with lens coatings from years as a filter maker to the mix, and are now releasing their own set of full frame covering primes for around $3000 each. 

For more or to pre-order head over to the NiSi site.

Obviously not the best camera operator work to talk about such beauty...
Focus? nope
Camera shake? Yes

Willing to watch the video to the end? nope.

What I have heard: Nisi lenses are rebadged Bokkelux lenses. Not a new lens design but rather a repackage lens similar to most full frame cine lenses which are just repackage full frame photography lenses.
