Samyang unveils New ‘Tiny Series’ AF 45mm F1.8 FE
Samyang has added a new lens to its Auto-Focus line-up of lenses, introducing the all-new Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 FE lens. A multi-purpose lens that’s been developed for use with Sony Full-Frame E-mount cameras and only weighs 162g.
With holiday season rapidly nearing, Samyang is predicting demand in the camera lens market to grow. And to kick off the season, they’re introducing a versatile AF 45mm F1.8 FE lens, with fast aperture and minimum object distance of just 45cm.
Seemingly tailor-made for holiday and travel photography, vignetting, distortion and chromatic aberration promise to be controlled well, making it a strong choice of lens for photographing travel scenes, children and animals. Samyang has completed a new lens design, optimised for high-resolution mirrorless cameras, using modern technology and special lens elements. The AF 45mm F1.8 FE promises a whole new user experience, with premium results.
High resolution and compact design
The AF 45mm F1.8 FE applies 7 lens elements in 6 groups, including two ASP [Aspherical] optics and 1 ED [Extra-low Dispersion] element, to control any aberrations or distortion, for consistent, even illumination and sharpness.
The rounded 9-blade diaphragm, coupled with the bright F1.8 maximum aperture promise a great bokeh effect, especially when shooting with a shallow depth of field.
Samyang are presenting this new lens as a perfect option for enthusiastic photographers who are interested in photographing anything from children to animals, landscapes to nature.
