A whole new world created by 180º Fisheye lens
The Samyang 8mm T3.1 Cine UMC II Fisheye lens is a mirrorless video lens designed for APS-C crop sensor.
The compact size of the lens increases mobility to shoot images with ease. A wide angle of 180º maximises the characteristic of fisheye lens. It ensures more accurate shooting with T-number which represents the actual amount of light transmission.
Samyang lenses show an exceptional optical performance especially in light transmission. Optical construction of Samyang 8mm T3.1 Cine UMC II Fisheye features 11 lenses in 8 groups – among lenses, there are 2 glass aspherical lenses (AS) and 3 low-dispersion glass (ED) realising high image quality and contrast for centre and corner of image even when aperture is fully opened.
Distinguishing focus ring gear is suitable for follow focus system, and uncoupled aperture ring controls aperture quietly during shooting for precise operation. This lens operates in manual aperture system with low T-number which enables natural shooting under various light exposure circumstances.
There are 6 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 as it is made of high-strength aluminium alloy. Trustworthy images can be captured even under inferior environment. The non-detachable petal-shaped lens hood minimises flare and ghost by sheltering lens from unnecessary light.
