Samyang AF 14/2.8 for Sony E mount

The new lens in the Summer Blockbuster Series from Samyang is not just another new lens for Sony E mount. It represents another sign of a shift to autofocus, something we do not usually associate with Samyang lenses.

Samyang AF 14/2.8 for Sony E mount

The new Samyang AF 14/2.8 FE for Sony E mount mirrorless cameras with full frame sensor size is the widest angle available in the market in its class, broadening the sight of photographers to capture the world.

Samyang continues their Summer Blockbuster Series with this new lens, which follows the recent availability announcement of Samyang AF 50/1.4 FE. This new product will be one of the first autofocus lenses in over 40 years of Samyang’s class-leading core optics technologies.

The company says, in the information provided, that it “has captured the essence of world leading image technology with their manual focus lenses and reinterpreted it into autofocus lenses. Photographers now can enjoy the prime manual lens image quality and autofocus lens. Samyang AF 14/2.8 FE is compatible with both phase detect and contrast detect sensors to operate fast and accurate focus detection.”

The 14mm F2.8 is built based Samyang’s optical technology. Ultra Multi Coating and three aspherical lenses have been included among 14 elements in 10 groups to minimise aberration and unnecessary light dispersion, delivering high resolution from the centre to the corners of the image.

This new lens expands the family of Samyang Optics photo lens line-up from manual focus only, to now include autofocus lenses. With the addition of 14mm to 50mm, Samyang now has two autofocus lenses along with 39 manual focus photo & cine lenses and 6 professional cine lenses, XEEN. The lens will be globally available from September, and the suggested retail price is € 699. Under the name Rokinon the lens – as many other Samyang references –  is also available in the United States, with a price of $849.

I am a writer and photographer living on the West Coast of Portugal, a place I tend to call the Atlantic Realm. An area of rugged cliffs and sandy beaches overlooking the sea, a coastal area sitting between the Atlantic Ocean waves and hills and forests with some of the most magical palaces, castles and prehistorical sites for you to visit and photograph. Little hamlets, vast fields, inviting you to a contemplative state of mind. That’s where I live, and the landscape surely makes you what you are.
