In the revised new edition of the VDSLR cine lenses, which was launched in August 2020, the wide-angle Samyang MF 14mm T3.1 will appear in February as the fifth focal length. With its maximum aperture of T3.1, it is not quite as fast as its fellow lenses, but it is compact and also designed for a full-frame image circle.
The optical design is said to have been further improved here as well. Special lenses include 1x ASP (aspherical), 3x HR (high-refractive), 1x H-ASP (hybrid aspherical) and 2x ED (made of glass with particularly high dispersion). All glass lenses are treated with Samyang's proprietary Ultra-Multi-Coating (UMC) to reduce aberrations, ghosting and lens flares.
Focus and iris are continuously adjustable, each with a gear ring that is positioned uniformly on all MK2 lenses. The focus travel is 139 degrees. As with the entire MK2 series, the iris now consists of 9 blades instead of 8. The dials are now positioned on both sides of the VDSLR MK2 lenses for easy reading when shooting.
Unlike the other focal lengths in the series, the hood cannot be removed on the MF 14mm T3.1. The model for Canon RF has a rear film filter holder.
The Samyang MF 14mm T3.1 VDSLR MK2 will also be available in seven mount versions: Canon EF, Nikon F, Canon RF, Sony E, Fuji X, Canon M and MFT. The mount is weather sealed. The diameter of the optic is 87mm, and the length and weight vary depending on the mount. The Canon RF version is the heaviest at 746.4g, while the Fuji X version is the longest at 123.4mm.
A price has yet to be announced - as an approximate guide, the 24mm wide angle of the VDSLR MK2 series costs 729 euros.
