Veydra Lenses Kickstarter Update: Delivery Timing Continued, new 85mm Mini Prime, JVC LS300 Compatibility, More D|Focus Accessories
My sincere apologies for the delay in an update. We’ve had a lot going on and we have some fun new stuff for you here.
Delivery Timing Continued
Down to what everyone cares about; “where are my Veydra lenses?”. We had some delays in shipping the the 4 and 5 lens sets due to an intentional withholding of the 25mm and 50mm Micro 4/3 Mini Prime lenses until they were perfect. We’ve had the 6 Lens Case, Formatt Firecrest Filters, D|Focus Accessories and the 16mm and 35mm lenses for a couple weeks now but we wanted to deliver everything at once for a complete experience.
We will be shipping to all Backers on Monday and Tuesday February 23rd and 24th. We apologize for the delay but we did what we felt was in everyone’s best interest.
We have already shipped to many of you for single lens rewards and the response has been very positive so we are assured you all will greatly enjoy our quality and workmanship.
New Veydra Micro 4/3 85mm T2.2 Mini Prime lens!
We are pleased to announce the all new Veydra lenses Micro 4/3 85mm T2.2 Mini Prime! We’ve been working hard on making some new lens calculations and we are happy to announce that we will be shipping a new 85mm focal length at the end of this year. The 85mm T2.2 M4/3 Mini Prime will have the same features as the other lenses identical length, focus/iris gears in the same position, plated brass mount, 80mm front diameter, and 77mm filter thread. The 85mm is available for pre-order and we will be sending a special offer for priority delivery to Kickstarter Backers.
We will also announce later this Spring a wider focal length Veydra Micro 4/3 Mini Prime than our current 12mm for those of you that desire something even wider. We finalize the design on this lens and announce it in the coming months. We hope to deliver everything we announce in the coming months before the end of the year.
JVC LS300 Compatibility
We are pleased to announce that all current Veydra Micro 4/3 Mini Primes have been tested by JVC here in North America and they are compatible with the new LS-300 camera. The Veydra Mini Prime lenses in 25mm, 35mm and 50mm all cover the effective portions of the sensor on the LS300 with no sensor mapping required and the 16mm and 12mm also cover due to the variable sensor mapping technology found in the LS300. We have had several Backers ask us about this camera due to it’s larger S35 sized sensor in the native M4/3 mount and we are pleased to have had it tested by JVC here in North America directly to get confirmation. If this camera meets your needs, then we are happy to say the Veydra lenses Micro 4/3 Mini Primes appear an excellent match for true cine style shooting.
D|Focus V4 and D|Rails Available
In addition to all the great things we have going on over here at Veydra, we continue our partnership with D|Focus Systems and we are pleased to offer their D|Focus V4 and offer a special 20% off coupon to all Backers with code kckacc20.
The D|Focus V4 has been specially made for us without the D|Gear to keep the price down and also as the D|Gear is not needed for our lenses since we feature the 0.8 module focus and iris rings built into the lens.
The D|Rails is also a great add on for your kit as you can add a 15mm LWS rail mount to your D|Cage or your BMPCC or GH4 directly. Our kit includes 6″ Rods which we find to the be the perfect length for Veydra lenses Micro 4/3 Mini Primes. We offer the same 20% discount if you use code kckacc20 on checkout at Veydra.com
That’s it for now folks. Check back soon or feel free to drop me a message if you have any other questions.
I am very excited to have lenses in all your hands in just a few short days.
