Lensrentals Tests: Cheap Veydra Mini Prime Lenses are ‘Optically Excellent’

veydra-mini-primes

Roger Cicala of Lensrentals put bargain-priced Veydra Mini Prime E-Mount Super 35 format cine lenses through optical bench testing and found their performance compared quite favorably to more expensive Zeiss CP.2 Cine Primes.

“If you’re a CP.2 fan, you’re going to have to talk about the look of the lenses, or how they handle, or something similar to explain why you like them. Because, to be quite blunt, the Veydras just kick some serious resolution butt in this comparison.”
