      Sigma has announced a new 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens, designed for the cameras with APS-C and Micro Four Thirds sensor. It is a second model (after 30mm f/1.4) designed for this system. We had to wait for it for more than one and a half years.

      The optical system is based on 16 elements placed in 13 groups, among which we will find 2 asheric lenses and 5 low-dispersion lenses (FLD and SLD). The lens is of course supposed to offer the highest possible optical quality and focus within the whole frame.

      The autofocus motor is to enable smooth and fast focus adjustment, which is to positively influence film-making. The minimum focus distance is 25cm.

      The lens is equipped with a 9-blade aperture. It is also sealed against dust and weather conditions. The lens has the dimensions of 72×92mm and it weighs 405g.

      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.
       

      1). Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE
       
      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.
