From Samyang: SAMYANG Launches New AF 18mm F2.8 FE -Lightweight and Super-Wide-Angle Lens for Sony E-mount (Full-Frame)

 

29 August 2019: Global Optics Manufacturer Samyang Optics announces the launch of their new AF 18mm F2.8 FE. This amazing new lens weighs just 145g (without lens-hood or cap), which makes it the lightest and smallest 18mm super-wide-angle auto-focus lens currently on the market.

 

Innovation in Size: Surprisingly Small but Super-Wide

Whilst various new lenses are being released at the same time as smaller and lighter mirrorless cameras, it is difficult to find wide-angle lenses that have been designed with their weight and size significantly reduced to match the cameras.

 

Samyang's new AF 18mm F2.8 FE is determined to set a new direction for super-wide-angle lenses.

With autumn just around the corner, the super wide-angle AF 18mm F2.8 FE lens is designed to be exactly what customers are looking for. It has a full-frame 100° angle of view, weighs just 145g and fits perfectly in the hand. Coupled with fast aperture and handsome design, this is the perfect lens for mirrorless cameras, whether shooting outdoors or indoors.

Incredible Detail: 9 Elements and 8 Specialty Optics

With a total of 9 lens elements in 8 groups, Samyang use 8 specialty elements (3 Aspherical, 2 High Refractive and 3 Extra Low Dispersion) to create results with incredible sharpness, low chromatic aberration and minimal distortion. This delivers unmatched resolution and colour for landscape, interior and astrophotography. The AF 18mm F2.8 FE lens utilises a Linear STM motor for fast, quiet and accurate focusing, helping the user to capture priceless moments effortlessly.

 

Released in Time for Autumn Photoshoots

The AF 18mm F2.8 FE is the first super-wide-angle lens in Samyang's ‘Tiny Series’ (which also includes the AF 35mm f/2.8 FE, AF 24mm f/2.8 FE and AF 45mm f/1.8 FE models), all designed under the concept of being incredibly capable, despite their compact size.
