Samyang VDSLR 16mm T2.6
Cine lenses feature subtle differences to photographic lenses, aiming to smooth focus and aperture transitions during recording. This Samyang VDSLR lens boasts a de-clicked aperture ring for seamless adjustment, while both the aperture and focus rings are actually large gear wheels compatible with follow-focus systems to make focus transitions even smoother. Aspherical elements and an Ultra Multi Coating help ensure optimal image quality.
First impressions_ As competing Schneider and Zeiss optics cost an arm and a leg, Samyang is in a strong position here.
