The Samyang AF 35mm F1.8 FE is a fast-aperture, wide-angle, prime lens, optimised for use with full-frame Sony E-mount cameras. The compact size and light weight of this prime provides great mobility and convenience for shooting a wide range of subjects, from everyday reportage (indoor and outdoor) to food photography, cityscapes, landscapes and more.
The AF 35mm F1.8 FE provides outstanding corner-to-corner image quality, even wide-open and its quiet autofocus and tenacious tracking performance make it a great choice for both still and video shooting. The small size also makes it well-suited for use with APS-C (crop-sensor) camera bodies, where it offers a 52.5mm equivalent focal length that is perfect for everyday photography.
This lens features a focal length that's become widely regarded as the best for street photography, providing a comfortably wide-angle view that allows creative photographers to get what they want in the frame, as well as delivering a natural perspective of the scene. Weighing in at just 210g (without lens caps & hood) and measuring 65mm (diameter) by 63.5mm (length); this lens sets a new standard in portability, as part of the Samyang 'Tiny Series'.
The optical construction includes 2 aspherical elements, to suppress aberration and deliver high-resolution throughout the entire image frame. A 9-blade circular aperture enables beautiful bokeh and smooth out of focus backgrounds. This lens is equipped with Samyang's Custom Switch; you can easily select various functions, such as Aperture Control Mode by using the switch and enjoy the shooting mode that suits your personal preference. More functions will be added through firmware updates in the future.
The newly researched and developed Linear STM (Stepping Motor) allows the focusing lens group to be controlled more quickly, quietly and precisely, providing superb image quality in high-resolution stills and videos. Weather-sealing protects from dust, light rain and snow, providing the ability to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions. Also, the AF/MF switch enables you to be in full control and capture the finest details. You can enjoy the full freedom of photographic expression, with all the latest functions.
