DZOFilm VESPID 50mm T2.1 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Relatively small and lightweight, the DZOFilm VESPID 50mm T2.1 Lens is part of the VESPID series of lenses from DZOFilm and is well suited for independent and high-end full-frame cinematography. The lens has an 80mm front diameter, allowing it to work with virtually any cine-style matte box. The small size makes this lens an attractive option when working with drones and gimbals, as well as when shooting handheld or run-and-gun. Sporting an interchangeable Canon EF mount, this fully manual lens works with cameras that have a Canon EF mount, and optional lens adapters allow you to use it on cameras with different mounts. The full-frame lens coverage supports sensors with an image circle up to 46.5mm for use on cameras with sensors up to full-frame without any vignetting.

The 16-blade iris, which is consistent throughout the VESPID prime lens lineup, creates round out-of-focus highlights that have a more natural appearance and contribute to the lens's natural-looking bokeh. The focus ring features 270° of rotation for precise focus pulls, and the iris ring has a generous 58° of rotation. Cine-style gear rings on the focus and iris rings make the lens compatible with cine-style lens accessories such as follow focus units, lens motors, and lens control systems.

This 50mm lens has an image circle that covers a full-frame sensor. When mounted on a camera with a Super35 sensor, it provides you with a tighter shot than if mounted on a camera with a full-frame sensor.
The lens features metal construction to withstand the rigors of daily production.
The common 80mm front diameter allows for quick lens changes as you don't have to swap out antireflection donuts or adapters to use the same matte box.
A minimum focusing distance of 14.57" allows you to get up close to your subject.

I'm impressed by the quality of this lens, the weight. It's the perfect add-on to my Red Komodo Kit - Used a RF to PL adaptor from Metabone and it's rock solid.

Phenomenal lens

I bought this lens along with the 100mm and now I'm waiting for the 25mm to be in stock since I like the look so much! The lens is sharp but not clinical like the sigma arts and has a beautiful roll-off from sharp details into the bokeh. Great colors and texture to the image with extremely minimal chromatic aberration (I've only seen it come up with extremely blown out background behind the subject). This is a HUGE difference from the Rokinon DSX which had such bad CA that most back-lit footage was unusable. Only cons to this lens are the weight and the extremely long focus throw if you're not shooting in a controlled set - the focus throw is definitely not ideal for fast paced environments, but still workable. All in all definitely pleased with these guys.

Great vintage character in modern housing

Low contrast, great flare character. Paired with a GG1 or BPM1/8 and am very happy with the look. Solid construction and great action on pulling focus. Test shots are from R5 shooting c-log3 and basic color correct. Already ordered the 35mm and 75mm and can't wait to add the 25mm. Would recommend!

Why does it says PL & EF mounts? What does it comes with PL or EF? And do you get both mounts to interchange? Thanks.
Asked by: Scot
This and many DZO brand lenses will come with a PL mount and also include a Canon EF adapter to allow mounting on Canon EF mount cameras. This is the included EF mount adapter - https://bhpho.to/3hREizR
