- 5 years ago

Being quick to the RF party, Samyang’s first two RF mount lenses align themselves with other key models in the brand’s existing wide-angle and telephoto lens lineup.

The Samyang MF 14mm F2.8 RF is an ultra-wide-angle, manual-focus lens, which promises excellent sharpness, even when opened to its maximum aperture. The 115.7˚ wide angle has been designed with landscape and interiors photography in mind, whilst the lens can be used in a wider range of shooting scenarios.

The Samyang MF 85mm F1.4 is a lens much-loved for its great bokeh. Ideal for portraiture and still life shots, with its vivid colours and smooth out-focus quality.

Both lenses minimise aberration and unwanted light dispersion by applying Samyang’s optical technology and proprietary Ultra Multi Coating [UMC]. A new outside design and weather sealing produce a modern and uncomplicated look that pairs well with mirrorless cameras, along with providing essential protection from light rain and snow conditions.

Pricing and availability

The Samyang MF 14mm F2.8 RF & MF 85mm F1.4 RF will be available sometime in March 2019 with a suggested retail price TBC.
