presents the Veydra – prime lenses in the Micro Four Thirds format:
Veydra is a premium cinema lens brand… Veydra lenses are offered by Zhang Optics Inc who has designed and/or manufactured designs for several major cinema related products companies on the market today.
Purpose built for cinema acquisition applications, all Veydra lenses feature constant volume focus, 0.8 cinema pitch gears on the iris/focus rings, constant T-Stop, and common front diameter for quick lens changes in a production environment.
All Veydra lenses exceed 4K resolution and are constructed of the finest aircraft grade aluminum and optical glass elements with multi-coating for color consistency.
And here are tests conducted with the camera:
Here are some more complete tests from the Panasonic GH4 for everyone to review.
On this Test we used a Panasonic GH4 and you will find the following; Focus Breathing, Color Matching within the set of lenses, Flare, Contrast, Skintones, and Bokeh..
The Veydra has been fully funded on Kickstarter so one can expect the lenses to hit shelves soon. Regarding availability, this is what they had to say on Kicstarter:
Yes we will really do everything we can to deliver lenses in January. The 16mm, 25mm, 35mm, and 50mm are in production now. We need the help of the Kickstarter community to make the lenses faster and put the finishing touches on packaging. The 12mm will ship in June 2015 and we are hoping to raise enough funds here on Kickstarter to move into production faster on the 12mm.
Veydra offers a standard 1 year manufacturer’s warranty for parts and labor for the lenses to be free of defects from material and workmanship.
Veydra Mini Primes are available in Metric. Please send us your focus scale choice when you back us for a lens reward and we will ship them with the Metric scales installed. Please note that a Metric scale may take us a couple weeks longer than the Imperial version to ship to you.
The price of the full set is $4,895, but the Kickstarter deal will get you everything for $3,199.
