This Samyang V-DSLR (video DSLR) lens features a decoupled aperture and allows for connection of follow-focus gearing, this enables the user to change the aperture and depth of field smoothly and silently while still filming, and enables linking to Follow-focus camera systems, to enable even easier filming then ever before. This lens can also be used for normal still photography as and when required.


Product features:

  • Samyang VDLSR micro four thirds mount exclusively designed for recording.
  • This super wide-angle lens is perfect for photo and video landscapes, buildings and monuments, interior and sports activities.
  • The focus ring and iris gears produce better coupling in Follow-Focus systems.
  • The lens features a number of layers of anti-reflective coating, for the best possible light transmission to generate high-quality pictures.
  • Easily fit everything in to the frame.


The lens offers low distortion and gives a high image quality, the lens is an ideal companion which really excels when it comes to taking landscape, architectural photography and general photography that requires a really high quality wide angle lens.

Using an ultra wide-angle lens means you take in so much more of the scene, great for interior property images like small, tight places when you can´t fit everything in to the frame, even if you are unable to stand back anymore to get more in the frame.

This Samyang ultra-wide-angle lens can easily capture the real enormity of how big a building actually is, allowing us to get up close and fit it all into the frame. With this type of Samyang lens things can appear longer or even more stretched at the edge of the frame than they actually are, this can help to create perspectives to bring the viewer into the image. Using this type of lens you can use foreground elements to help also compliment whatever is in the background.
