Samyang has announced the AF 85mm F1.4 FE lens for full-frame Sony cameras
Samyang has announced the AF 85mm F1.4 FE, an autofocus prime lens designed for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras.
The 85mm F1.4 FE is Samyang's sixth autofocus lens for Sony full-frame cameras since first unveiling a pair back in 2016. Powering the autofocus is Samyang's Dual Linear Sonic Motor (DLSM) that uses ultrasonic vibrations to drive the focusing mechanism.
The lens is constructed of 11 elements in 8 groups, including one Extra Low Dispersion (ED) and four High Refractive (HR) elements, and features a nine-blade aperture diaphragm. Its aluminum body is weather sealed to protect against rain and dust and features a Samyang's Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) on its optical elements.
The minimum focusing distance is 0.9m / 1.95ft and uses a 77mm filter thread. It measures in at 99.5mm / 3.9in long and weighs 568g / 1.25lbs. Below is a sample gallery of images provided by Samyang:
Samyang claims the AF 85mm F1.4 FE will be available Spring 2019. Pricing information is not yet available.
