The VDSLR MK2 set comprises 5 of the most-used focal lengths: 14mm T3.1, 24mm T1.5, 35mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5 and 85mm T1.5. As well as delivering the beloved image quality and fast T-stop values of the existing VDSLR series, the new models now have weather sealing, 9 aperture blades and their focal lengths are visible on both sides for more professional use. The range is highly versatile, available in 7 camera mounts.
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.
