    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.

    2). Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE

     

    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.

      Tokina Fírin 20mm f/2.0 FE AF is a fixed lens which has been designed having in mind a full-frame Sony E system. The first version of the lens had the same parameters but it was not equipped with the autofocus. This version will not disappear from the market but it will be a manual alternative of the lens. 
       
      Inside the new lens, we will find an advanced optical system consisting of 13 elements placed in 11 groups. Among them, we will find two aspherical lenses and three super-low dispersion lenses, whose task is to minimize aberration and image distortion.  In addition, the lenses have been covered with anti-reflective coatings. 

      The lens is equipped with the 9-blade aperture, which can be regulated within the scope of f/2 to f/22.

      An ultrasonic motor, supported by GMR sensor, is responsible for focusing. As a result, we can enjoy a quick and quiet image re-focusing, from the minimum distance of 28 cm.

      The body of Tokina FíRIN 20mm f/2.0 FE AF is made of metal. The tubus, with a very attractive look, has the dimensions of 73.4x81.5mm and it weighs 469g. The lens is to appear on sale at the end of May. We don't know its price yet.
