Offering a broad field of view and bright design, the S 20mm T2.0 Cine Lens from Viltrox is an ultra-wide prime lens for full-frame, Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras. The wide-angle design and fast T2.0 maximum aperture make it well suited to astrophotography use, as well as landscape, interior, and architectural shooting. Its standard 0.8 MOD cine-style gears allow you to operate the focus and iris using standard cine equipment.



In its design of 12 elements in 9 groups, it incorporates a series of aspherical and low dispersion elements, which reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations for sharp, well-corrected imagery with accurate colour rendering. An HD Nano multilayer coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.



The lens has a manual focus design, which permits working with subjects as close as 9.8" away, and its 14-blade iris contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality. It also features an 80mm front diameter and an 82mm filter size. Additionally, its bayonet is constructed from brass for durability and smooth operation. A lotus-style lens hood and a round lens hood that accepts filters are both included.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
