Samyang Ef 85mm T1_5 Vdslr
- Samyang EF 85mm T1.5 VDSLR (Canon EF mount)
The Samyang VDSLR 85mm T1.5 MK2 is a compact, high quality, fast prime cine lens, available in several mounts. It has full-frame coverage and is optimised for use on video, DSLR and mirrorless cameras.
Whether this is your first dedicated cine lens or you are simply looking for amazing performance from compact glass, the MK2 version inherits the superb optics and build quality from the previous model, but has several added features for enhanced performance and handling. All models in the VDSLR MK2 range have unified focus and aperture gear ring positions. This allows for easy changing of lenses without having to adjust follow-focus systems and rigs.
For added convenience and professional usage, focus scales, apertures and focal lengths are visible on both sides of the lenses. The new 9-bladed aperture delivers smooth and circular bokeh, which adds a three dimensional quality to the subject and pleasing out-of-focus effects. An 18-ray starburst highlight effect can also be created by stopping down to small apertures. Weather-sealing now protects the most vulnerable gap between the lens and camera mount, to prevent dust, light rain and snow from penetrating. It provides the ability and confidence to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions. Due their compact dimensions and light weight, Samyang VDSLR MK2 lenses are ideal for use handheld, with gimbal, on car mounts and drones.
They offer an ideal way to experience the quality of genuine cine lenses on a low budget, for high quality video making. They are especially popular with YouTubers.
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 4 lenses have aspherical lens elements to reduce spherical and optical aberration, producing clear and vibrant images.
For independent filmmakers, a versatile lens saves time and budget. The Samyang VDSLR MK2 series has fast T1.5 apertures across all 4 models, supporting filmmakers and allowing them to concentrate more on the scene and creativity, without having to concern themselves about image quality, even in low-light situations. Also, the shallow depth of field available blurs out the background and highlights the subject, adding depth to the story.
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.
The Samyang VDSLR MK2 models have a sleek new design; black and matte finish boosts usability and professionalism on the set. They are lightweight but sturdy and fully equipped for numerous projects. The distance scales are readable from both sides, as are the focal lengths. These features support focus pullers and assistant cinematographers to operate more intuitively.
