Samyang Introduces VDSLR 16mm T2.6 Wide-Angle Cine Lens

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.

Samyang 16mm T2.6 Features

  • Wide Angle in 106.91° 
  • Aspherical Lens 
  • Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) of Samyang Optics 
  • Designed as Cine lens – Follow Focus Gear Rings and Declicked Aperture 
  • Circular aperture with 9 blades 
  • Smooth Focus Ring

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.

The new wide-angle completes the Samyang cine lens lineup and will be available globally from June 2017. Expected retail price is EUR 599, with US pricing yet to be announced.
