Manual adapter for Samyang V-AF lenses – precise focus control

Samyang introduces a special adapter for V-AF lenses that enables precise manual focusing in demanding video productions. However, this is only one of its possibilities.

Introduced in September, the Samyang V-AF lenses are the first film aimed at mirrorless cameras equipped with an AF system. In addition, they are very affordable, which makes them a very attractive proposition for beginners and intermediate video creators. The slightly limited ergonomics of the film lens may discourage professionals. The manufacturer wants to change this by introducing a special adapter V-AF MF adapter.

All the features of a cine lens in a compact form

The Samyang V-AF Lens Adapter adds a large, comfortable and accurate manual focus ring. The adapter easily attaches to the front of any V-AF lens, giving filmmakers and videographers full focus control.

The focus adapter has a dual scale in feet and meters, and fine focus adjustments can be made with a smooth 300° rotation. The focus ring is the industry standard 0.8 mod and can be combined with any tracking focus.
