    Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE Announcement

      News

    Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE is a proof that the company has treated the development of the series of lenses with autofocus for full-frame Sony E system very seriously. Three lenses are already available on the market, and the next one has just joined them. Similarly to the previous ones, it has been designed having in mind both enthusiasts and professional photographers, who do not want to spend fortune on the systemic Sony lenses.

    The optical system consisting of 11 elements placed in 9 groups is responsible for image quality. Among the elements, we can find 2 aspherical lenses and 2 high-refractive ones. Some of the lenses are covered with Ultra Multi Coating, which minimizes the emergence of light leaks and lens flares. The used optical system and 9-blade aperture are to generate unique image plasticity with soft blurrings and pleasant bokeh effect.

    The lens is also equipped with an improved autofocus system – LSM (Linear Super sonic Motor), which is supposed to be quieter, faster and more precise. It is also supposed to work in harder lighting conditions.

    The lens weights 645g and possibly does not have any sealings.

    New Samyang, thanks to its minimalist design, is very similar to Sony lenses and it will certainly cooperate with full-frame mirrorless cameras of the producer.

    We don’t know the exact price of the lens yet, but we can expect it to be below $600, so around $1000 less than Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.40 ZA.

      In July, the users of Pentax digital reflex cameras will be able to enjoy the benefits of a new, bright lens - FA* 50 mm f/1.4 SDM AW. Unfortunately, out of the pair of modern ”Star” lenses (HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW and HD PENTAX-DA 11-18mm f/2.8), announced this year, only the first one will appear on sale. The premiere of the second one is scheduled for 2019.
       
      Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW is a fixed lens. Its optical system consists of 15 lenses placed in 9 groups (3 apsherical lenses, 1 made of abnormal-dispersion glass). The aperture of the lens is made of 9 blades and the minimum focus distance is 40 cm.
       

      1). Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW
       
      The new AF ring motor is supposed to ensure a 7.5x greater torque from the one in the previous constructions of this producer. The effect of this is quicker and more accurate focusing.
       

      2). Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW
       
      The properties of the aperture and the coatings of the lenses: HD, Aero Bright II and Super Coating, are supposed to ensure the background blur and good contrast in hard lighting conditions. Light reflections and flares are supposed to be kept to a minimum. The coatings of the lenses enable keeping them clean.
       

      3). Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW
       
      The lens is, of course, sealed and splash-proof. Since the electromagnetic aperture has been applied in the lens, we will be able to use it only with the latest models of Pentax cameras: K-1 Mark II, K-1, K-3 II, K-3, KP, K-70, K-S2 or K-S1.
       
      Pentax FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW is to appear on sale at the end of July and the price of the lens, as at today, is $1200. You can preorder this lens here.

      Professional users of mirrorless Sony cameras can finally complete their arrays with a new bright FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens which has been announced for a long time.
       
      The lens has been designed having in mind sports photographers as well as the ones wanting to catch wildlife in movement – the combination of the above in the form of, for instance, a bear on a skateboard is, of course, possible.
       

      1). Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS
       
      The optical system of the new Sony lens is based on 23 lenses placed in 17 groups, 3 of which are low-dispersion fluorite lenses. In order to ensure good balance of the lens, the lenses have been placed in the central and rear parts of the system. The lenses are covered with anti-reflective and fluorine coatings, which enable keeping them clean.
       

      2). Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS
       
      The lens is equipped with a 11-blade aperture. Two newly-designed linear motors, which are supposed to facilitate the tracking of moving objects, are responsible for the functioning of the autofocus. At our disposal, we have 3 modes of image stabilization and a sharpening clutch. On the side of the lens, we have function buttons, including Full-Time DMF switch, which enables continuous manual sharpening.
       

      3). Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS
       
      One of the main advantages of the lens is its construction. It has the dimensions of 158 x 359mm, it weighs only 2.7kg and it is supposed to enable, in special circumstances, photographing ”from hand”. The lens is made of magnesium and is, of course, sealed. Inserted filters with the diameter of 40.5mm can be used on the lens. In the case of using 1.4x and 2x converters, the brightness will decrease by, respectively, f/4 and f/5.6.
       

      4). Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS
       
      Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS will appear on sale in September. The enthusiasm may be cooled down by the price of the lens since, as at today, it will cost $12000.

      Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 FE is a cheap proposition dedicated to the owners of the Sony E platform. It is a compact, wide-angle lens, equipped with autofocus.
       

      1). Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 FE
       
      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 24 mm 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.
       

      2). Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 FE
       
      Thanks to special coatings, irrespective of the weather conditions, the photographs taken with the new Samyang lens will be characterized by contrast and natural color reproduction. The minimum focus distance is 24cm.
       
      Time for some data. The lens has the following dimensions: 61.8mm (diameter) and 37mm (length) and it weighs merely 93g.  The lens is supposed to appear on sale in July 2018 and it will cost $399.
