      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.

      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.
