A Third Autofocus Lens from Samyang – AF 35mm F2.8 FE

Samyang Introduces third autofocus lens – AF 35mm F2.8 FE

June 5th, 2017, Seoul, Korea – Global optics brand Samyang Optics, is pleased to announce the release of Samyang’s third autofocus lens: the AF 35mm F2.8 FE. A tiny lens with a mighty performance, it is ideal for daily photography as well as travel photography. This new compact and lightweight lens, together with the existing AF 14mm F2.8 FE and AF 50mm F1.4 FE lenses, now expands Samyang’s autofocus lens line-up to three.

Tiny and Mighty
The AF 35mm F2.8 FE weighs just 85g and measures 3.3cm in length, without the hood and rear cap, it is roughly the equivalent in weight of a bar of soap and smaller than a name card in size. Thanks to Samyang’s exceptional optical technology, its compact size is packed with features for outstanding image quality. Featuring seven elements in six groups, two aspherical lenses and one high refractive lens plus Ultra Multi Coating to minimise aberration and unnecessary light dispersion, the lens delivers high resolution from the centre to the corners of the image.

Perfect Partner for Everyday Photographers
This new lens is specifically designed to work in harmony with full frame mirrorless cameras in Sony E mount. For full frame sensors, the focal length resembles the human eye the most. For APS-C types for Sony alpha 6000 and 5000 series users the lens is equivalent to approximately 52mm, which is also one of the most popular focal lengths among photographers.

Portability with mighty performance and a 35mm focal length makes this lens the best choice for daily photographers who want to capture every memory as a high quality image. The autofocus is fast and accurate and is ideal for the capture of outdoor events such as hiking, sports events and landscape photography. It also has a minimum focusing distance of 0.35m and is ideal for street, portrait and close focus photography.

Available from July 2017
This tiny and mighty Samyang 35mm F2.8 FE lens will be available from July, and will carry a suggested retail price of £279.99 inc VAT.
