The Samyang 85mm T1.5 AS IF UMC II VDSLR is a fast, medium telephoto lens designed for shooting high-quality video footage on a full-frame DSLR. The gearing on the focus and aperture rings allow you to follow focus and provide you with aperture control from a professional camera rig. The aperture ring has also been de-clicked, which enables smooth iris pulls. The focal distance and aperture settings are clearly marked on the side of the lens barrel for convenience. The large T1.5 aperture enables you to capture sharp images in low-light situations and also gives a beautifully blurred background.
UMC stands for Ultra Multi Coated, which indicates that the lens has been covered with multi-layered, anti-reflective coating which minimises reflections and increases image contrast. Internal Focusing (IF) means that all focusing occurs within the lens, i.e. the lens will not change size as it zooms. Manual focus only.
As Samyang 85mm photo lens does, this VDSLR lens also has an outstanding optical function. Optical lenses feature 9 lenses in 7 groups. Hybrid aspherical lens (H-ASP) has a specially designed curved surface to minimize color aberration and realize exceptional image quality and high contrast throughout center to corner of image even when aperture is fully opened. Samyang 85mm T1.5 II is an inner focus lens. The length of lens does not change when focusing so it is dustproof. Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) technology of Samyang Optics optimizes the light penetration and minimizes flare and ghost. There are 8 aperture blades designed to be almost as a full circle when aperture is closed which expresses starlike ray clearly and beautifully.
