  • Veydra lens production

    Does anyone have any info on what is going on with Veydra?

    I had one of the primes on order for 1.5 months at B&H but Veydra did not deliver any lenses or give any answers to the seller either. Also their website is down except for the starting page. They don't have any contact information on their website, their webstore is down and they have been silent in social media for quite a while.

    Are they going out of business? I'm hesitant to start investing on a lens line that might be ending production. Very unfortunate if this is the case.

    I wondered the same thing. Ryan Avery is off of social media too so it's a little up in the air. Duclos Lenses has stock though if you want any of them.

      I actually talked briefly with Duclos customer service about this since they work with Veydra, but they didn't have anything to say about the situation and even they are sold out on some of the primes. I also live on the other side of the world from them.

      I did notice that Ryan Avery works for Tokina now, so maybe the Veydra project is in the past now. Kind of stupid to speculate about this here but I am just really disappointed in this since I finally had decided on this lens line now that the Pocket4K has been announced.

        Looks like Veydra is out of dodge. Yikes. I was close to buying their set. I'm glad I did not.

          It's been like this for a while...it definitely seems like they are done (but it's all speculation of course).

            Unfortunate timing, with the P4K coming out soon.

              Agree, it seems unfortunate that Ryan will miss a significant bump in sales of Veyras in a few months. Maybe things are just in hibernation and sales will resume.

                If they are done it is too bad. I couldn't afford a set yet and was waiting for the right cameras to go with them. The full set with 2 or three of the new pocket cams would be a great small package for the way I like to shoot.

                  Same here; I was thinking about a multi-P4K setup with some Veydras myself for a project later this year or early next year. Still going with a multi-cam setup; I just need to figure out the lenses. I'd prefer not to have to go the SpeedBooster route again unless I have to.

                    Voigtlanders are very popular with the MFT crowd. Amazing glass.

                    SLR Magic has a bunch of choices. Or Kowa PROMINARs.

                    Some people are modding the Fujinon 18-55mm for their GHXs.

                      SLR Magic announced the MicroPrime Cine E-Mount lenses at NAB 2018. They're just now starting to ship. They look sweet, and decently priced. Wish they'd make a M43 version.

                          Those would be killer in M43

                            Micro primes from SLR Magic seem interesting if they decide to make M43 versions. From what I have read they are rehoused older SLR Magic lenses though?

                            If the Veydras are EOL, one other alternative might be the Zeiss Milvus lenses used with a speedbooster. Does anyone have experience how they work as video lenses; breathing, focus throw, etc. ?

                              Zeiss Milvus lenses were designed with video shooting in mind. “They have excellent manual focusing, well controlled, and therefore actively composing an image gently and precisely from your fingertips. Here, a good ergonomic design makes all the difference. ZEISS Milvus Lenses feature a large rotation angle which enables pinpoint focusing. The top-quality focusing mechanism moves smoothly without backlash, optimally supporting the photographer's creative interplay with the focal plane of high-speed fixed focal lengths. Changes are immediately visible in the viewfinder or display. The engraving in meters and feet, and the focus scale provide additional support for manual focusing. The silent, continuous aperture setting (de-click function with ZF.2 mount) and the long focusing range lay optimal conditions for video photography.” Zeiss.

                              It is one of the options I am looking at to replace my Veydra Mini Primes, which I managed to sell.
                              Cheers
