This Samyang lens is a variety of long-focus lens which works with an exclusive internal construction to provide a longer focal length as opposed to the length of the lens itself. This makes it more compact, less heavy, and less complicated to control, whilst still supplying superb long-range images.

These kinds of kind of lenses are usually employed when you are quite close up to the subject, but nevertheless don't choose to intrude too much. They are sleek and stylish, easy to carry, and can be hand-held for fast shooting.

As this lens is optimized for video, the focusing distance and aperture value have to be read from the side of the lens, instead of the top. The Samyang 85mm lens features UMC multi-coated optics, 9 elements in 7 groups along with 1 aspherical lens element. A mixture of these components generate exceptional optical performance, together with faithful colour reproduction and nominal chromatic aberration.

The iris and focus rings are able to be tweaked whilst recording a sequence discreetly and gradually to increase control. The focus rings and diaphragm are jagged to guarantee more effective engagement with Follow-Focus systems.
