AF 85 1

Samyang has announced the fourth lens in its 2019 'Spring Collection' lineup - a new 85mm f/1.4 FE Prime lens.

Samyang say that demand for lenses which can produce various artistic expressions is growing, and so the 85mm f/1.4 offers both sharpness and beautiful bokeh in one body, as well as excellent AF performance. 

"The AF 85mm F1.4 FE allows you to express drama, even in low-light situations, using shallow depth-of-field and its maximum aperture of F1.4. The beautiful and attractive bokeh helps the subject stand out and give it character. In addition, the lens structure features weather-sealing to enhance anti-dust and water-protection capabilities, enabling photographers to continue shooting, even in unpredictable conditions."

Advanced Optical Technology 

The lens is currently only available for Sony full frame cameras. The AF 85mm f/1.4 FE features 11 elements in 8 groups, and 4 high-resolution glass elements let the lens remain compact yet able to provide stunning resolution. There's also an ED (extra-low dispersion) element to remove colour-fringing and chromatic aberration. 

No suggested retail pricing has been announced, but the lens will be on display at The Photography Show this weekend for the first time. It will be available to purchase in Spring 2019, say Samyang. Samyang lenses are available in the UK and Ireland through Intro2020.
