Samyang 8mm T3.8 Cine UMC Fisheye CS II Lens was developed primarily for film and video applications. The cine version of Samyang's 8mm lens features industry-standard gearing for the focus and aperture ring, and the aperture ring has been de-clicked for smooth iris pulls. The aperture and focus scales have also been relocated to the side of the lens, where it is easier for focus pullers to read them.
This lens is compatible with DX-sized sensors and provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 12mm. Its 180° angle of view makes it well-suited to creative applications. The optical construction incorporates one hybrid aspherical element to reduce chromatic aberration and distortion to produce sharper imagery. Additionally, a UMC coating has been applied to lens elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich images.
