Samyang has announced their latest lens and this time it’s the 85mm f/1.4 Full-frame lens for Sony E-Mount.
The AF 85mm f/1.4 FE features 11 elements in 8 groups, and 4 high-resolution glass elements that let the lens remain compact yet able to provide stunning resolution. There’s also an ED (extra-low dispersion) element to remove colour-fringing and chromatic aberration
No suggested retail pricing has been announced but it should be available to purchase this spring.
Samyang will be displaying the lens at the Photography Show at the NEC (UK) this weekend.
Here’s a short promo video from Samyang:
Further details and sample images can be found on Samyang’s website here.
It will certainly be interesting to see how this new lens from Samyang compares with Sony’s own FE 85mm F1.4 GM lens.
