Samyang announces a new lineup of lenses optimized for video content creators according to their needs. The new V-AF lineup is the world's first lens for video creators designed to make video content creation more convenient. The second lens from this new V-AF lineup is the V-AF 24mm T1.9. Samyang will release more lenses by the end of 2023. Meet the new V-AF lineup custom-designed for videography.
Unified Form Factor – Compact & Light
The V-AF increases compatibility with gimbals and drones by applying the unified form factors with its 5 different focal lengths (Ultra-Wide to Medium-tele). By providing a compact size of 73 X 70mm and a light-weight of less than 300g, there is no need to re-set the equipment when changing the lenses.
LED Indicator (Tally Lamp) - Excellent usability
The lamp located on the front and mount index helps the user to check whether a video is recorded or not while shooting. It supports video content creation more conveniently even in a small space without a lot of equipment.
Support 8K and the same color tone
The new V-AF series supports resolutions up to 8K in a small and lightweight form, which is well suited for use with handheld gimbals and drones, as well as for studios and location productions. All lenses within the new V-AF series are color-matched to avoid shifts when swapping lenses, and the 9 aperture blades allow for a natural-looking bokeh.
Custom Switch & Button
Features the 'Focus save' function usually in professional cine equipment and custom mode that adds function by firmware, which provides video-specific functions for students and amateur users who dream of cinematographers.
