    Yongnuo YN 35mm f/1.4 Announcement

    Sign in to follow this  

    Yongnuo is not wasting time - the YN 35mm lens described today is the fourth lens of the producer about which we are informing this year.  The main properties of  the lens concern the complex optical system with the advanced defect correction, good resolution,  effective autofocus and resistant body. This bright full-frame camera may become an interesting proposition for the fans of street, reportage or even portrait photography.


    The optical system of the lens is based on 11 elements placed in 9 groups - among them we will find two aspherical lenses and two low-dispersion ones. Yet another procedure used by the producer in order to minimize the appearance of the light flares and light leaks is covering the lenses with several anti-reflective coatings. The aperture of the lens consists of 7 blades and its nominal hole is f/1.4. The minimum focus distance is 35cm.

    The effective DC Motor is responsible for the speed of work of the autofocus. Thanks to it, the AF is to be quick, precise and it should work well even in the "Live View" mode. On the body of the lens, we will find a frame which facilitates manual focusing and which shows the scale of the hyperfocal distance. Thanks to the USB connection, it will be possible to update the lens' software.

    Yongnuo YN 35mm f/1.4 is equipped with gold-plated contacts and the metal mount has been covered with the chrome layer. All of this is supposed to positively influence electrical conductivity and general durability of the lens. The device has the dimensions of 82 × 111mm and it weighs 810g.


    The detailed specification of the lens is not known yet. Unfortunately, we also don't know when YN 35mm f/1.4 will appear on sale and how much it will cost.

      Together with the premiere of Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4 and 17-28mm f/2.8 III, the company has announced the lens which is supposed to be the “embodiment of the whole existing experience of the producer with regard to the optical production”. On 3rd June, the producer presented its latest baby, namely Tamron SP 35 mm f/1.4 Di USD.

      Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD consists of 14 elements placed in 10 groups. Among them, there are 3 LD (Low Dispersion) lenses and 3 made of GM (Glass Molded Aspherical), which are to effectively eliminate chromatic aberration which is a common problem of bright lenses. A new-generation coating, BBAR has also been used in the lens.

      The lens is to provide uncompromising resolution within the whole frame, irrespective of the selected aperture. The 9-blade aperture with the nominal hole of f/1.4 is responsible for the image plasticity. The USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) is responsible for quick and precise work.

      Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD has been, of course, sealed. Besides that, the front lens possesses a fluorite coating based on a newly-developed fluorine compound with high properties which repel water and oil. Thanks to this, the surface of the lens is easier to clean and it is less susceptible to dirt and humidity. The lens also enables screwing the filters with the diameter of 72mm, similarly to other fixed lenses of the series.

      Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD will be available with the Nikon F and Canon EF mounts – respectively, at the end of June and at the end of July, for $899.

      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.
