Samyang announces AF 35mm f/2.8 FE lens

Samyang officially announces the AF 35mm f/2.8 FE lens designed for Sony E-mount cameras.

The compact and lightweight optic expands the Samyang’s autofocus lens line-up with the existing AF 14mm F2.8 FE and AF 50mm F1.4 FE models.

The lens features aspherical lens, Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) of Samyang Optics and Circular aperture with 7 blades. The price of the Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE would be around 299$ in USD. This makes it $500 cheaper than the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 FE lens (Amazon, B&H).

The AF 35mm F2.8 FE weighs just 85g and measures 3.3cm in length, without the hood and rear cap. 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.

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 size image sensor cameras like Sony A6000 and A5000 series users the lens is equivalent to approximately 52mm.
