Samyang SYDS50M-N overview

  • 1Description

The 50mm T1.5 VDSLR AS UMC Lens for Nikon F Mount from Samyang is a fast, manual focus, prime lens. It provides a maximum aperture of T1.5 for effective low light capture and shallow depth of field control and an 8 blade iris for attractive bokeh. Optimized for cinema and video applications, the focus and aperture control rings are outfitted with industry standard gearing, which provides an interface for working with a traditional follow focus. The aperture control ring has also been de-clicked, which enables smooth iris pulls. In addition, bright aperture and distance markings are printed on the lens barrel facing laterally to facilitate easier control by a focus puller.

The 50mm has a minimum focus distance of 1.5'. Internal focusing minimizes the effects of lens breathing, which insures a more consistent angle-of-view when adjusting focus. The lens is composed of 9 elements in 6 groups, including one aspherical element and one hybrid aspherical element to reduce aberrations. In addition, a lens multi-coating helps to improve light transmission reducing flare and ghosting. The filter thread diameter is 77mm.

The VDSLR line of cinema lenses unifies Samyang's cine lenses into a cohesive series. Each of the VDSLR lenses will offer the same alignment of their geared focus and aperture rings so that follow focus and other rig accessories won't need re-adjustment when swapping lenses. Also, each lens is tested to be color matched with the other lenses in the series and provide the same color and contrast when shooting video. Lastly, the lenses are marked with focusing scales on each side of the barrel for easier adjustment from both sides of the camera.

Standard length manual focus prime lens for FX format F mount cameras. Will also fit DX format cameras.
Functional as still photo lens but optimized for cinema and video shooting with geared aperture and focus rings, de-clicked aperture for smooth exposure transitions, and side-facing aperture and distance markings. The 50mm T1.5 is part of the VDSLR series of cine lenses, sharing characteristics and features that unify the series and make it easier for users to swap out lenses when shooting video. Each VDSLR lens provides aligned focus and aperture rings so that readjustment of the follow focus is not necessary when switching lenses. Also each lens has been tested to match color and contrast for a consistent look and less potential post-processing. Finally, all lenses from this series print focus scales on both sides of the lens barrel for ease of use from each side of the camera.
Very fast T1.5 maximum aperture for effective low light capture and shallow depth of field.
Internal focusing system with 9 lens elements in 6 groups.
One aspherical and one hybrid aspherical lens element control aberrations and improve sharpness throughout the frame.
Lens multi-coating improves light transmission and reduces flare and ghosting.
Minimum focus distance of 1.5'
Filter thread diameter of 77mm

    Samyang SYDS50M-N reviews

    50mm T1.5 VDSLR AS UMC Lens for Nikon F Mount is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable cinematic lens I purchased these lenses for our school's GH4s, Canon t2is, and t3is, and bought this one for my Nikon 3100 and 5200. They are very professional quality, with smooth focus and aperture rings, good for run and gun shooting, and sharp optics. The cameras I have are beginner/ intermediate level, but these lenses greatly improve my video quality. I'd say the only negative, is that the sharpest aperture is at 5.6, and the highlights have a small amount of pink, as well as the lens flares. However, other cinema lenses are way beyond the price of these, and these may last you a long time, even if you go professional. Also they make my cameras look really cool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just love those lenses Those cinema Samyang/Rokinon lenses are really cool to me. They are very well finished, robust and nice looking. The 1,5 max aperture gives you the nice looks and I thought when I first used it that the piqu is really amazing for a lens of that price (especially after putting down my 24-70 NIKON, meh :) ). It's nice to have a cool set of cine lenses for such a cheap budget :)
