Featuring a fast design and a popular focal length, the Sony E-mount 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC from Samyang is a versatile wide-angle prime characterized by its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture for extensive depth of field control and low-light performance. The lens’s optical design incorporates a pair of high refractive index (HR) elements and one aspherical element, which help to control spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness, clarity, and accurate rendering. An Ultra Multi-Coating is also featured to reduce flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Its manual focus design affords an 11.8″ minimum focusing distance and a floating elements system also helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the focusing range.
Prime wide-angle lens is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Notably bright f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords greater control over depth of field.
One aspherical element and two high refractive index elements help to minimize spherical aberrations and distortion in order to achieve greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting in order to produce greater contrast and color accuracy.
Floating elements system is employed, which maintains consistent image quality throughout the focusing range, from 11.8″ to infinity.
Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
