    It seems that people concerned with landscaping or architectural photography will soon have a possibility of buying a lens which have never been seen on the market before. Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art is the first lens which can take photos with an ultra-wide field of view and a f/1.8 lens at the same time. Additionally, the lens is designed to work with big full-frame sensors which are more and more frequently applied in today’s cameras.

    The whole structure is built of 16 lenses placed in 11 groups. 10 lenses are the special ones – both SLD and FLD. The front lens is also protected against the accumulation of dirt or water.

    The HLD ultrasonic motor, known from other Sigma lenses, is responsible for adjusting focus. Its work has been accelerated by 30%. The minimum focus distance in this lens is 27cm.

     

    Sigma 14 mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art can be also connected to the USB Dock docking station. Thanks to this, we will be able to upgrade its software.

    The lens will be available with the Nikon, Canon, and Sigma mounts. Thanks to a special adapter, we will also be able to mount it to Sony cameras.

     

    Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when the lens will appear on the market, or how much it will cost.

      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.

      A Chinese producer Yongnuo is strengthening its position among the producers of budget photography equipment.  The latest proposition of Yongnuo is the EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens. Its predecessor, Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 appeared on the market in 2014 and we remember it mainly because of its huge similarities to Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 and, of course, the price which was much power than its predecessor's.  
       
      The producer assures that the II generation is equipped with an improved optical system and a more efficient AF. The optical system consists of 6 lenses placed in 5 groups, just like its predecessor's. However, the latest construction ensures  46-grade angle of view and the zoom of 0.21×. The new technology of coatings is supposed to ensure the minimization of reflections and light reflections, which can occur during taking photographs in hard conditions.  The focusing speed, precision of focal length and light permeability have also been improved. 
       

      1). Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1.8 II 
       
      The 50mm focal length and the 7-blade aperture with the light of f/1.8 are responsible for focusing. Thanks to them, we can achieve round bokeh and soft blurring. On the lens, we can mount filters with the diameter of 58mm.
       
      The minimum focus distance is now 35cm - this parameters has been improved by 10cm. In manual focus adjustment, the focusing distance indicator, which is on the front of the lens, will be useful. 
       

      2). Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1.8 II 
       
      Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1.8 II is a compact construction, its dimensions are 75 × 52mm and it weighs 162g. The housing is made of plastic but the whole thing looks solid.  The longevity of the Chinese camera should be ensured by the metal bayonet, covered with chrome. In order to avoid problems with the compatibility of various computer operating systems, the producer has resigned from the possibility of direct connection of the lens to computers with the use of the USB cable. YN 50mm f/1.8 II can be updated via the camera. 
       
      At the moment, Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1.8 II is available on Ebay. It costs $74 in the version intended for Canon cameras.

      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. 
       

      1). Meike MK 85mm f/1.8 AF
       
      The lens is made of plastic and the mount - of metal. In addition, on the housing there is an autofocus switch and a rubber ring for manual regulation. Popular filters with the diameter of 67mm can be mounted on the lens. 

      The price and the date of availability have not been revealed yet.
