Samyang is introducing a new VDSLR MK2 lineup, enhanced with weather sealing, focal lengths written on both sides, sleek design and 9 aperture blades. Inheriting the Samyang's incredible cinematic video quality, this pioneering cine lens series will continuosly help independent filmmakers and low-budget project directors to broaden their horizons of creativity as their first cine lens set.
The new VDSLR MK2 range is launching with 5 focal lengths: 14mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm. These angles are essential for any creative or commercial projects. All 4 lenses are available and fully compatible with 7 camera mounts: Canon EF, Sony E, Canon RF, Nikon F, Canon M, Fuji X and MFT. They are suitable for both DSLR and mirrorless systems and ready to support all types of filmmakers around the globe.
The compact size of Samyang's VDSLR lenses makes them perfect for hand-held and gimbal shooting. The VDSLR 50mm T1.5 MK2 is only 7.47cm (2.94") in length and weighs just 525.8g (1.16lb), but it is fully-featured with de-clicked aperture and focus gear rings. The long focus throw of over 130° enables cinematographers to focus precisely and exactly on their subjects, creating a more professional feel to video footage than with autofocus photo lenses.
In contrast to their compact size, the VDSLR MK2 lenses cover full frame sensors (36x24mm) and are ready for the high-quality video making environment. This new series inherits the outstanding image quality of previous series: All 5 lenses have aspherical lens elements to reduce spherical and optical aberration, producing clear and vibrant images. The 50mm model also has a hybrid aspherical lens element to maintain compact size, without compromising performance.
The new VDSLR MK2 series has been updated with 9 aperture blades and is able to deliver the latest image trends. The smooth and circular bokeh adds a three dimensional quality and pleasing out-of-focus effect. 18-ray starburst highlights can also be created by stopping down to small apertures.
As requested by many users, the MK2 series now includes a weather-sealing feature. This protects the most vulnerable gap between the lens and camera mount, to prevent dust, light rain and snow from penetrating. It provides the ability to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions.
