Samyang has launched a new AF 75mm f/1.8 FE lens for Sony E mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. Weighing at 230g, this new model prides itself as the world’s lightest and smallest 75mm autofocus lens. Some of the salient features of the latest Samyang AF 75mm f/1.8 FE lens include new autofocus motor, custom switch, & special ED and HR lens elements.
Supporting precise optical construction, the lens is able to deliver outstanding resolution while keeping the aberrations, fringes, and distortion at a minimum. With 10 elements in 9 groups, Samyang’s new AF 75mm f/1.8 FE lens incorporates 3 ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) and 2 HR (High Refractive) special elements.
Photographers looking for a middle-ground between the Samyang AF 50mm and 85mm will love the new 75mm version. This focal range is not very common nowadays and allows photographers to get closer to the subject than the 85mm while still delivering outstanding bokeh and background compression.
For quiet and accurate autofocus performance, Samyang AF 75mm equips a new Stepping Motor (STM).
Due to the bright f/1.8 aperture, the lens performs great under low-light conditions. In addition, it provides a shallow depth of field resulting in gorgeous portraits.
The new Samyang AF 75mm lens also features a “Custom Switch” that extends the functionality of the focus ring. With a toggle of a custom switch, the user can adjust the lens aperture through the focus ring.
