Item description

Macro lens for great close-ups
The Samyang 100mm VDSLR Macro lens offers completely new possibilities for close-up filming. With a focal length of 100mm at full frame and a close-up limit of just 30cm, you'll see the world from new angles. With a crop factor of about 1.5 for APS-C, you can even turn your 100mm into a 150mm lens. Film things you've never seen before. No matter if you want to capture the exciting habitat of insects or just the impact of a drop on the water surface. This lens makes it easy for you to capture fascinating images. The very high quality of the imaging performance, the multi-coated lens surfaces and the precise mechanics allow you to concentrate entirely on your artistic work.

High quality workmanship
The lens is constructed to a very high quality. The metal housing is very robust and impresses with its elegant design. The glass lenses are coated and therefore provide an excellent contrast and sharpness range as well as a balanced color balance. The particularly high-quality optics of the lens ensure optimum image results. The lens hood prevents stray light and lens reflections entering from the side.

The Crop Factor
The focal length of a lens is always given in relation to a full-frame sensor. The full-frame sensor has the same size as a 35mm or 35mm film image. For smaller sensors in cameras, such as APS-C or MFT, a smaller portion of the image that the lens projects onto the sensor is used. This corresponds to a longer focal length. The crop factor indicates how far the focal length changes as a result. The image then shows the same section as if it had been taken by a full-frame camera at the corresponding focal length. Three common crop factors: APS-C for Nikon and Sony: 1.5 (makes a 100 mm into a 150 mm lens), APS-C for Canon: 1.6 (from 100 mm to 160 mm), MFT: 2 (from 100 mm to 200 mm).

Advantages of a full frame lens on a camera with APS-C sensor (or smaller)
Save time in post-processing: A variety of lens defects such as distortion, blur, or vignetting appear on the edges of the image. If you use a full-frame lens on a camera with an APS-C sensor, these areas will not be used in the first place. Thus, you automatically get the maximum quality and no additional time for correcting lens errors needs needs to be invested in post-processing.

Why the aperture is sometimes given in T
In photography, the abbreviation "f" is used for aperture (from "focal length"). The given value indicates the ratio between focal length and entrance pupil at the lens. In film and video, on the other hand, the abbreviation "T", which stands for "transmission", is used. This value is calculated from the aperture f and the loss of light in the individual lens. It indicates the net brightness of the image that hits the sensor. This makes it possible to change the lens within a scene when filming: As long as the same "T-Stop" is selected for both, it is guaranteed that two shots of the same scene filmed with the two different lenses are equally bright. Thus, no jumps in brightness occur when the two clips are edited together.
