Samyang's "Tiny but Absolute" AF 75mm f1.8 FE lens sets a new standard for shooting portraits and events with Sony mirrorless cameras, it is also the world's first 75mm autofocus lens for fulI-frame format.
In the past, 75mm was accepted as the ideal focal length for shooting portraits but this increased to 85mm during the SLR generation, due to space required for the mirror in SLR camera bodies. Mirrorless cameras have a shorter flange back, so 75mm can become the new ideal angle of view once again.
The AF 75mm f1.8 is compact and light; its size and weight have been optimised for use with full-frame or crop sensor mirrorless cameras and it has a convenient 58mm filter thread.
This outstanding lens delivers remarkable image quality and sharpness from centre to edge, regardless of situation, subject or surroundings. Using their own optical technology, Samyang's development of UMC (Ultra Multi Coating) effectively eliminates flare and ghosting. The 9-bladed aperture provides wonderful circular bokeh in out-of-focus backgrounds and a clear 18-ray Sunstar effect can be achieved, which outperforms competing products.
The internal autofocus system is fast and quiet, thanks to Linear STM motor technology, which also eliminates autofocus noise during video shooting.
This lens has several unique features, including a Custom Switch which adds functions to the focus ring. Users can assign different functions to the focus Ring according to their own preferences. These functions can be changed via a Samyang USB Lens Station and more functions will to be added via firmware upgrades.
