Samyang introduced a new cine lens to its VDSLR line-up. It's an affordable wide-angle lens suitable for filmmakers using DSLR or mirrorless cameras with a 35mm sensor. Samyang's VDSLR 16mm T2.6 offers quiet and smooth de-clicked focus and aperture gear rings. Distance scale and T numbers are marked on both sides of the lens for optimal convenience when filming. The new addition is compatible with ten camera mounts: Canon EOS, Nikon AE, Pentax K, Sony A, Canon M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Sony E, FT, and MFT.
The relatively new Cine line offers a wide range of lenses for full frame sensors from the 8mm fisheye through to a 135mm telephoto lens, including six for mirrorless cameras varying from 8mm to 50mm.

The latest Samyang lens uses 14 glass elements in 11 groups. Two glass aspherical lenses, two extra-low distortion lenses, and two high-refractive lenses are used to effectively create the flow of the light and to minimize color aberrations and distortion.
