New Samyang 75mm f/1.8

Posted on May 14, 2020

Samyang’s new lens for Sony E-mount full-frame cameras is perfect for portraits and more.

Samyang’s latest addition to its lens range is an AF 75mm f/1.8 FE for Sony E-mount cameras. For its focal length and fast maximum aperture, this lens is very small and light, weighing in at 230g – Samyang says it is the lightest and most compact autofocus 75mm lens currently on the market.

Autofocus is handled by a new Linear Stepping Motor (STM) giving fast, quiet and very accurate focusing, while the advanced ‘ten elements in nine groups’ optical design gives first-rate results. Three extra-low dispersion and two high refractive elements are included to help the lens deliver impressive sharpness, low chromatic aberration and minimal distortion. An extra neat feature of this lens is the custom switch, which lets the user adjust the aperture value using the focusing ring.

This lens is available now at a price of £379.
