The DZOFilm VESPID 12mm T2.8 Cine Lens (ARRI PL & Canon EF) opens up more opportunities for visual storytelling with its broad Perspectives and infinite creativity. The Vespid 12mm offers a diagonal field of view of 126° on Vista Vision format, with a horizontal view of 119° and a vertical view of 81°. While the ultra-wide-angle composition boosts cinematic and dramatic effects, the extremely expansive visual field offers stunningly rich details. The Vespid 12mm boasts two aspherical elements that effectively control chromatic aberration and distortion, achieving outstanding resolution and rendering true-to-life colors and details. The T2.8 aperture delivers alluring shallow depth of field and dreamy bokeh, making it suitable for low-light conditions, high-speed shooting, and astrophotography.
The 10-blade iris creates round out-of-focus highlights that have a more natural appearance and contribute to the lens's natural-looking bokeh. The focus ring features 270° of rotation for precise focus pulls, and the iris ring has a generous 75° of rotation. The lens has a magnetically attached rear filter for ND filters.
