    Whether the kinematics includes the hard transverse photon momenta or not makes a dramatic difference in computing deeply virtual Compton scattering in terms of the widely used reduced operators that define generalized parton distributions. Our tree-level complete deeply virtual Compton scattering amplitude including the lepton current plays the role of spin filter to analyze such kinematic dependence on the contribution of longitudinally polarized virtual photon as well as the conservation of angular momentum. © 2011 American Physical Society.
