Samyang announces new 85mm AF F-mount lens and its first two Z-mount lenses
Samyang has released a new lens for Nikon F-mount systems and two new lenses for Nikon Z-mount systems: the AF 85mm F1.4 F, the MF 14mm F2.8 Z and the MF 85mm F1.4 Z.
Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 F
As the name suggests, the AF 85mm F1.4 F is a weather sealed autofocus lens made for Nikon F-mount camera systems. Its optical construction consists of nine elements in seven groups with one hybrid aspherical element and it features a nine-blade aperture diaphragm. The front filter thread measures in at 77mm and it measures in at 74.5mm / 2.93in long, 88mm / 3.46in in diameter and weighs 480g / 1.06lbs
The Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 F isn't currently listed on B&H or Adorama at the time of posting this, but the Sony E-mount version retails for $699, so the F-mount version should be around that price point when it does become available.

The first of the Z-mount offerings is the MF 14mm F2.8 Z. This manual focus lens is constructed of 14 elements in 10 groups and includes one aspherical element, one hybrid aspherical element, two extra-low dispersion elements and three high refraction elements.
