Product Description

The Samyang 24mm T1.5 ED AS UMC II for CANON is the new Mark II (Mk 2) version featuring revised placement of the focus and aperture gearing, so all newest lenses have the gearing in the same place for convenience on rigs and professional follow focus systems. Samyang 24mm T1.5 ED AS UMC VDSLR (Video DSLR) versions have been developed primarily for professional cine / movie making purposes where high quality fast prime lenses are the primary requirement. The VDSLR version feature follow focus gearing and decoupled (de-clicked) aperture, which allow the user to smoothly and quietly change focus and aperture / depth of field whist filming, and link to professional follow focus cam systems. The aperture and focus scale are located to the side of the lens to improve visibility of the scale.

The 24mm VDSLR version is compatible with full frame or APS-C sized sensors. It is ideal for full-frame cameras, constituting a high-quality wide-angle lens perfect for street, landscape and architecture shooting even in low light conditions. Photographers using Canon DX / APS-C sensors will get approx 38mm field of view (35mm equivalent) suitable for journalist and general photography.Movie camera lenses are rated by a T-number instead of an F-stop.The F-stop expresses the speed of the lens on the assumption that lens transmits 100% of the incident light. The T-number expresses the actual light transmission. The sharpness is excellent, even at the edges of the frame at wide apertures, and the fast T1.5 aperture is able to give a narrow depth of field for separating subjects from the background, and enabling faster shutter speeds in low light conditions.

Samyang 24 mm T1.5 VDSLR is a manual focus lens. The focus ring features toothed rings compatible with professional geared follow focus systems available in the film industry and likewise a toothed, decoupled (de-clicked) aperture ring. Such modifications allow for smooth and precise control over focus and aperture during video recording / filming. This allows for ultimate manual control of focus and exposure when filming from one scene to another with different light source intensities, such as changing exposure values (EVs) from inside to outside, or even in-camera fade ins etc.

For film and video applications manual focus is the preferred choice, allowing changing focusing during filming and here are increasing numbers of users using DSLRs for filming and High Definition (HD) video. The Samyang 24mm VDSLR lens provides lovely bokeh (the character of out-of-focus areas), due to its design and fast aperture. Optical construction of the Samyang 24mm lens features 13 lenses arranged in 12 groups, 4 lenses are low-dispersion glass (ED), plus two aspheric elements. The 24mm features Ultra Multi Coated (UMC) multi-coated lenses for the best possible light transmission, and resistance to ghosting and flares.

Samyang 24mm T1.5 ED AS UMC VDSLR lens offers a professional wide angle prime lens with excellent optics, yet still manages to deliver amazing value for money. Supplied with detachable petal shaped lens hood, lens caps and soft lens bag. Filter size is 77mm.

    Awesome lens

    This is the first dedicated video lens I've bought, and it lives up to its reputation. I use it with a 5D Mark ii and the results so far are very impressive. Some reviewers have said the 24mm is difficult to focus, but by using the digital zoom on the camera screen I've experienced no problems at all, in fact, this lens is sharper than both the Canon primes I use (50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.8); there is some slight softening of the image when shooting at T1.5, but it's negligible, and stopping down a couple of stops sorts it. There is no obvious evidence of chromatic aberration, colour rendition is very faithful (again, better than the Canon lenses) and contrast is superb; there is some slight edge distortion when you shoot away from the horizontal, but I rather like the effect, and after all this is a 24mm lens, one would expect a certain amount.
    I wasn't at all sure about buying a Samyang lens, but I have to say that now I have, I'm very impressed. The build quality is excellent, the lens body is metal and very substantial, in fact it's reassuringly heavy. Focus and aperture scales can be viewed from either side of the lens, and it works a treat with the Fotga follow focus (my cam. ass. loves it). It also has a nice red ring at the back of the lens; it doesn't do anything, but it looks cool!
    If you're a filmmaker on a budget and can afford neither the Xeen nor the Canon Cine lens, buy one of these, you won't regret it!

    By on
