Global optics brand, Samyang Optics (http://www.samyanglensglobal.com) is pleased to unveil its first autofocus lens for Canon full frame DSLR cameras: AF 14mm F2.8 EF. This light weight wide angle lens inherits the renowned image quality of Samyang’s wide angle series and delivers a quiet, fast and accurate autofocus system.
World Class Wide Angle Lens
Samyang 14mm. The first EF mount autofocus lens from Samyang encapsulates the brand’s universally respected optical technology, especially in the wide angle lens category.
From a total of 15 lenses in 10 groups, 7 special optic lenses have been chosen in the production of this lens, to maximise the image quality. The use of 2 aspherical lenses, 4 high-refractive lenses, and 1 extra-low dispersion lens minimises distortion and various aberrations while producing crystal clear resolution. The remarkably even image quality from centre to corner of the wide 116.6 degree angle of view appears distinctly on its MTF chart.
Ideal Lens with High Usability
Importantly, the minimised weight and movement of the focusing lens group enables quiet and pleasant autofocusing with high accuracy. This compact Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 EF weighs only 485g without lens caps and hood and is the best travel partner to capture unforgettable moments onyour journey. Weather-sealing and a built-in AF/MF switch increase usability.
Available from February 2018
This world-wide Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 EF inherits the renowned image quality of Samyang’s wide angle series from the manual focus 14mm F2.8, the premium XP 14mm F2.4, the AF 14mm F2.8 FE autofocus lens for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras and professional cinema lenses, and the XEEN 14mm, 16mm and 20mm.
The lens will be available globally from February and a suggested retail price is EUR 699.
