VDSLR Lens Features
Samyang 50mm T1.5 AS UMC II is carefully designed for professional film and video works. The focus gear ring is installed for follow focus system. You may change the aperture quietly and smoothly with the uncoupled aperture gear rings. Also, distance scale and T numbers are marked on both sides of the lens for convenience.
Samyang 50mm T1.5 AS UMC II is a manual focus lens with a low T number. You may control the lens precisely when shooting under various exposure environment including relatively dark or too bright situations.
This lens features 9 lens elements in 6 groups including 1 glass aspherical lens (ASP), and 1 hybrid aspherical lens (H-ASP) to offer high resolution. Especially, H-ASP minimises colour aberration to realise exceptional image quality and high contrast for centre and corner of image even when aperture is fully opened. Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) technology of Samyang Optics optimises the light penetration and minimises flare and ghost. With such optical construction, it has 0.45m of minimum focal length to take photos of subjects in near distance.
There are 8 aperture blades designed to be almost as a full circle when aperture is closed which expresses starlike ray clearly and beautifully. The frame of the lens is compact and solid since it is made of high-strength aluminium alloy so you can create trustworthy images. Also, detachable petal-shaped lens hood minimises flare and ghost by sheltering lens from unnecessary lights.
