Samyang Announces 4th Autofocus Lens: 35mm F1.4 FE

- 7 years ago

Samyang Optics has announced the release of their fourth autofocus lens: AF 35mm F1.4 FE, expanding Samyang’s autofocus lens line-up along with the three [other] existing autofocus lenses, AF 14mm F2.8 FE, AF 35mm F2.8 FE and AF 50mm F1.4 FE

Built to work with full-frame mirrorless cameras with a Sony E-mount system, like the Sony α7 or newer α9 series. It’s intended to appeal to professional users and enthusiasts who are eager to take the next steps with their photographic journey. The new 35mm 1.4 makes for a great lens to create artful photographs from everyday moments, whilst the small AF 35mm F2.8 FE [released in June of this year] is better suited for everyday photography.

High Performance

Absolute resolution across the entire image field is promised as the key feature of Samyang’s new lens. The new AF 35mm F1.4 FE includes 11 elements in 9 groups and features 2 aspherical lenses and 2 high-refractive lenses, plus Ultra Multi Coating.

The optical design minimises aberrations and unnecessary light dispersion to deliver excellent resolution. Fast, precise and quiet autofocus performance meets Samyang’s noted optical technology to capture moments clearly. The bright F1.4 secures fast shutter speed and creates shallow depth of focus in wide-standard angle of view. The new 35mm F1.4 lens is ideal for professional photography including low-light events, landscapes and portraits with expressive characteristics.

Pricing & availability

The new Samyang AF 35mm F1.4 FE will be available globally from this November with an S.R.P. of £599.00 [inc VAT].
