Meike MFT cine lenses

As their name suggests, Meike MFT cine lenses are a set of cine lenses by Meike, in the humble Micro Four Thirds format.

This format makes them compatible with the great value Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, and they similarly seem to punch well above their weight. I've found this combination gives great looking results, while being just about affordable for me.
