Samyang 85mm Cine Lens

Samyang has added a 85mm T1.5 lens to its cinema lens line-up.  The new 85mm T1.5 AS IF UMC lens joins the four existing Samyang cine lenses, the 8mm, 14mm, 24mm and 35mm.

Optical construction is the same as a standard version of the 85mm lens, including the 8-blade aperture for smooth bokeh wide open. This new version, however, is designed specifically for cinematography with focus gearing and a silent aperture ring.

No word yet on price, release dates or mount options; however, past Samyang cine models have been available in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts.
