Samyang has announced an update to its compact cine lens range with the new VDSLR Mk2 series cine lenses. To start the new series, Samyang has focused on four of the most popular and most used focal lengths at 24mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm, and each of them has a fast maximum T1.5 aperture. A fifth 14mm T3.1 lens will be added in Q1 2021.
The VDSLR line from Samyang was first launched in 2014 and has proven to be quite popular for its balance of quality, price and performance. Samyang says they’ve learned a lot in that time and the Mk2 generation features “useful new features” and they’re available in seven different mounts (including Sony E and Canon RF).
