Highly Recommended - A winning lens for both stills and videography

Review by John Riley
Goto review
4.5/5 Digital Camera World Recommended

Aimed primarily at filmmakers using Sony E-mount cameras, this 75mm lens has a fast T1.9 light transmittance rating, ideal for close-ups and head shots with dreamy bokeh. It excels at the task, with outstanding sharpness and beautiful blurriness, along with excellent colour rendition and contrast. Handling is refined and the lens works equally well for high-resolution stills as well as for video up to and including 8K. And it’s a bargain at the price.

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.

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 colour 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.

The Samyang V-AF Compact Autofocus Lens Set is Complete! The release of the V-AF Anamorphic MF Adapter 1.7x and V-AF 20mm T1.9 Lens

Creating high-quality cinematic footage has never been easier, thanks to the new compact cine autofocus lenses from Samyang. Designed to enhance your filming experience, these lenses combine smooth and precise autofocus performance with a unified form factor optimised for gimbal and drone shooting. In this blog, we'll explore the impressive features and functionalities of these lenses, the recent releases and how they can all elevate your videography projects to the next level.

The NEW Samyang V-AF 100mm T2.3 FE: First Impressions

Samyang have now released an additional focal length to their V-AF line-up, the V-AF 100mm T2.3. This lens is identical to its siblings with its distinct light brown coloured front and slick design, I honestly haven't seen any other sophisticated lens design like this before. My first impressions of this lens is its obvious small size and weight which is what Samyang is aiming for. The smaller size and lighter weight make it extremely easy to use with a gimbal, and alongside the other V-AF lenses as there is no need to rebalance your gimbal when changing lenses. One note to mention is that I found the 100mm is slightly front heavy, which is understandable in my opinion, it is 100mm after all! Plus, its size is already pushing the limits for this focal length, but the difference is not that much, so even our old gimbal can hold the 100mm after balancing for the other V-AF lenses.

Holdan @ IBC 2022 | Reflections

Empowering Content Everywhere... after a 3-year break While we would normally say ‘another year, another IBC’, this year was different, as IBC was returning for the first time in three years, thanks to a COVID-induced break. Much was the same – certainly the broadcasters, bitterballen and boats – although the carnage at Schiphol Airport was a first for many IBC veterans. Barcelona anyone?
