Samyang launches new lightweight super wide-angle f/2.8 lens

Samyang’s new 18mm lens weighs just 145g, making it the lightest and smallest 18mm super wide-angle autofocus lens currently on the market

While the light mirrorless camera market has been growing, Samyang believes few small and light wide-angle lenses have been made to match. With that in mind, Samyang has launched the new AF 18mm f/2.8 FE – the lightest and smallest 18mm super wide-angle autofocus lens currently on the market.

The lens features a fast aperture and a full-frame 100˚ angle of view. The new lens consists of nine lens elements in eight groups with eight specialty elements (three aspherical, two high refractive and three extra-low dispersion) and utilises a linear STM motor for fast, quiet and accurate focusing.

The Samyang AF 18mm f/2.8 FE will be available from Samyang stockists during September with a suggested retail price of £349.99.
