    Meike MK 85mm f/1.8 AF Announcement

      News

    Meike, a company known from the production of budget  photography accessories and lenses, has just announced a portrait full-frame 85mm lens, for the first time equipped with the autofocus. 

     

    Meike MK 85mm f/1.8 AF consists of 9 elements placed in 6 groups. Unfortunately, this is all information that the producer has shared. However, taking into consideration previous constructions, we should not expect the use of special lenses and coatings which improve the optical quality.

      New manual Samyang MF 85mm f/1.8 ED UMC CS lens with the equivalent of 135mm is dedicated to the users of cameras with the APS-C sensor, namely: Sony E, Fujifilm X and Canon EOS M.
       
      The optical system of the lens consists of nine elements placed in seven groups. Among them we will find one lens with high refractive index and one low-dispersion lens. Covering the lenses with UMC coatings should minimize light reflections and chromatic aberration. The producer assures that new Samyang is to ensure high resolution within the whole frame as well as good contrast and color reproduction.

      The lens is fully manual, which means that the control is provided by physical rings which regulate aperture and sharpness. Depending on the camera's system on which we are going to mount the lens, its equivalence will be 127 to 136mm. Sharp photographs with the use of the lens can taken from the distance of 65cm, the aperture consists of nine blades and the filters with the diameter of 62mm can be mounted on the front lens. The lens is not big since it's only 8cm in length and it weighs 344g. 
       
      New Samyang will be available on sale at the beginning of September and it will cost $399.
