    In the press release, the producer proudly enumerates the properties of a new lens, thanks to which the new Samyang should interest potential customers, e.g.: huge versality and usability, full-frame functions,  high quality of the optical system, compact size and affordable price.  The lens is to be perfect for outdoor and architecture photography as well as for street and sports photography, and group photographs.


    AF 24mm f/2.8 FE is a construction consisting of 7 elements placed in 7 groups. Two apsherical lenses and three lenses made of high-refraction glass have been used in the lens. Such a construction is supposed to ensure even sharpness within the whole frame and to minimize aberration.

      Already in December the owners of full-frame cameras with Canon EF mounts will be able to equip themselves with a new, uniquely bright lens of the premium class - Samyang XP 35mm f/1.2. As the Korean producer assures, it will be the only such bright construction available on the market.
      The lens has been constructed based on 12 lenses placed in 10 groups. Among them are 2 aspherical lenses, 3 lenses with high refractive index and one low-dispersion element. The construction is to ensure extraordinary resolution, contrast and perfect correction of distortion and aberration. The lenses are covered with UMC coatings whose task is to limit light reflections and flares. The lens “is ahead of its times” when it comes to offering compatibility with the cameras working in the resolution up to 50MP and the 8K video recording.

      1). Samyang XP 35mm f/1.2 
      The aperture of Samyang XP 35mm consists of 9 blades and it can be closed up to f/16 which, in connection with the superior brightness of the lens, is to ensure unique blurring. Sharp photographs can be taken from the distance of 34cm.
      The lens has the dimensions of 117 × 93mm and it weighs 1.1kg. The filters with the diameter of 86mm can be mounted on the front lens.
      Samyang XP 35mm f/1.2 will appear on sale already in December - unfortunately, the producer is not planning sales in Europe. Luckily, nowadays it's not an obstacle since Europeans and the residents of the rest of the planet can make use of online sales, for example via Ebay or Amazon. Of course, if they have a positive balance of $1,099 on their bank accounts.

      Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1, as the very name suggests, has the focal length of 150mm and the 1:1 mapping scale, thanks to which it is to ensure very convenient work during macro photography. Due to the longer focal length, we will be able to avoid covering the light falling on photographed objects and scaring them away.
      The optical system of the lens is based on twelve lenses placed in nine groups – there are three low-dispersion elements and four made of high-refraction glass. The producer assures that the distortion should be reduced to the level of 0,01%. The lens is equipped with the internal focusing system thanks to which the whole construction does not change its size during focusing. The lens’ aperture consists of eleven blades and it can be closed up to the value of f/32. The characteristic traits of the device should be nice background blurring and the diffraction which should happen later than in other lenses of such a type. Sharp photographs can be taken already from the distance of 34.5cm.

      1). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1
      The lens has the "Dragonfly" finishing, which means that it is a combination of advantages of "Firefly" and "Blackstone" lenses – the frame has been made of aluminum and the housing – of aluminum and magnesium alloys with composite elements. The whole construction has been sealed with particular focus put on the most sensitive places (front lens, focus lock ring, focus ring and bayonet). The lens is relatively light and small, its dimensions are 87 × 135mm and its weight - 840g. We will be able to mount filters with the diameter of 77mm on its front.

      2). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1
      The ring with the rotation scale of 270 degrees is to ensure high precision and culture of work. There is also a possibility of blocking the focus ring. The lens’ processor enables the control of the aperture from the level of the camera and the AE mode makes it possible to use semi-automatic modes (PASM). Thanks to this, the information on confirming focus from the level of the camera will be saved in the EXIF data.

      3). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1
      If we buy the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 lens, we will receive it in a stiff case in which we will also find a deep sunshield and the tripod grip in the Arca Swiss standard. The lens will be available with the Canon EF, Nikon F and Pentax K mounts.
      We don’t know yet when the lens is going to appear on sale. Its price is also unknown.
      Sony 24mm f/1.4 GM - a small wide-angle lens dedicated for photographers and filmmakers. Lens has been designed based on thirteen lenses placed in ten groups - two lenses are made in XA (extremely aspherical) technology and three are made of low-dispersion glass.  The lenses are covered with anti-reflective Nano AR coatings, which are to ensure perfect resolution within the whole frame, smooth blurring and unique effects during work against the sunlight. The lens' aperture is made of eleven blades whose closing enables achieving the effective of 22-arm stars at light points - sharp photographs can be taken already from the distance of 24cm. The lens is small, it has the dimensions of 92 × 75mm and it weighs 445g. We can mount filters with the diameter of 67mm on the lens.

      1). Sony 24mm f/1.4 GM 
      Definitely having in mind people who record films with the use of mirrorless Sony cameras, the modes of the lens ring work. The ring responsible for aperture control can work in the continuous mode and the focus ring directly translates to the movement of lenses. Inside the lens, we will find the ultrasonic Direct Drive SSM motor, which, as the producer assures, is now 3× faster than the older constructions and it ensures quiet work.

      The lens will appear on sale this month and it will cost $1,400.
