These are the only professional grade cinema lenses built from the ground up for the Micro Four Thirds camera system. I purchased the entire 6 lens kit for our video production company, and it has been one of our best investments, truly an invaluable part of our toolset. The kit consists of a 12mm, 16mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm – all T2.2, extremely sharp, robust, and amazing to pull focus with. At the time of writing this, the 12mm and 85mm are still in production. Camera bodies quickly become obsolete, but quality lenses that seamlessly inter-cut, and are of all the same physical dimension do not. Not to mention you can own all of these lenses for about the same price as one cinema lens in another format. Throw out the flimsy lens adapters, and equip your MFT camera with some purpose built optics!
Quick Unboxing of the Veydra Mini Prime Lens Kit. I will have another post soon with demonstration footage after I get some more time with the lenses. For those of you who don’t know, this was a hugely successful Kickstarter project for MFT specific cinema lenses. Perfect for the Panasonic GH4 (my go to camera: http://amzn.to/1QGr8LV), and the BMPCC.
There is also a kit available for the sony e-mount cameras! – http://amzn.to/2gnLVg9
All products that I recommend on my personal website, I have either owned or used. I post material on here because I hope to help other filmmakers who can’t quite find the information they are looking for.
