Samyang 16mm T2.2 Cine Overview

The Samyang 16mm T2.2 Cine Lens for Nikon F is a wide-angle lens optimized for digital cinematography. The lens produces an image circle that will cover APS-C sized sensors or smaller. The focus and aperture rings feature industry-standard 0.8 pitch gearing for attaching a follow focus unit. The aperture ring is also de-clicked to allow for smooth iris pulls while shooting. Focus, aperture, and depth of field markings are on the side of the lens to aid focus pullers, who typically operates on the side of the camera.

The 16mm T2.2 lens is constructed out of 13 individual elements in 11 groups, including one aspherical and one hybrid aspherical element. Aspherical elements help minimize unwanted distortion and chromatic aberrations. The lens also has a multi-layer coating to reduce flares and maintain image contrast in bright conditions.

With an angle of view of 83.1°, the lens is well-suited for shooting landscapes, architecture, and for use in tight interior locations. A maximum aperture of T2.2 means that the lens is effective in low-light shooting and can produce a shallow depth of field when the lens is closer to the subject. The lens has a minimum focus distance of 7.87". A bayonet-mount lens hood and lens pouch come included with the lens.

Used for semi-professional to professional work. Excellent lens for those out for creating a look that relates to most human brains, for this price, a no-brainer. I you're old school you'll probably love it. If you're new school you'll larn to love it, if you have patience and time.

I am using this lens on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera (film stuff) and it is terrific. Great clarity, excellent focus. The lens is smooth and quiet. Performs very well in low light situations. For the price, this lens is worth every penny.

Fantastic Lens and Value

Butter Smooth Focus and Apature. Crisp Focus and image. You can't beat the quality and image for the price. I'd put this lens up against a Canon 16mm or Carl Zeiss 16mm for image quality of image. I'm so thankful and amazed a company was able to create a CINE LENS of this quality for $. This lens of the exception when it comes to price and quality.I purchased this lens to shoot videos on my Canon DSLR, but it also takes amazing photographs. The specifications say it has a minimum focus distance of about 7, but I've been able to pull sharp focus much closer to objects at about 2 to 3 inches.

question

Will this lens work on a c100mk ii or will there be some vignetting ?
Asked by: James P.
Yes, this lens will work on the C100 Mark II. It covers APS-C/Super 35mm sized sensors, which the C100 Mark II has. There should not be any vignetting.

question

Does this have a cpu? Basically can I change aperature with the lens and camera body?
Asked by: Ethan
This is a manual lens that offers no electronic communication between the lens and camera body. You will only be able to control the Aperture and Focus from the lens itself.

question

Is it compatible with canon 5D Mark III?
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm afraid not. This lens is for an MFT mount camera, the 5D Mark III has an EF mount. Also this lens is for cameras with a sensor that is APS-C sized or smaller. You will need a Full Frame, EF mount lens for the 5D Mark III. We recommend the Samyang 14mm T3.1 Cine Lens for Canon EF-Mount instead, it has the proper mount and is for full frame cameras.
