Samyang is launching the AF 35mm F1.4 E II, a second-generation evolution of its Full-frame Standard Prime lens that is optimized for portraits, landscapes, as well as shooting videos. It includes Samyang's key features: focus hold button and custom switch. Samyang’s announcement of this new AF 35mm F1.4 E II means that both 50mm and 35mm, two major angles of view within Samyang's F1.4 E lineup, have now been updated.
AF 35mm F1.4 E II Key Features
Sharp & Clear from Corner-to-Corner
The 2 ASP (aspherical) elements in this new AF 35mm F1.4 E II lens deliver stunning contrast and amazing resolution. Samyang's advanced coating technology maintains superb image clarity, even in challenging lighting conditions. The corner-to-corner sharpness is maintained even at maximum aperture, so optical performance is consistent at all exposure settings. Furthermore, the AF 35mm F1.4 E II provides more clearer images through CCI (Color Contribution Index) improvement.
Faster, Precise, Quiet Auto Focus Performance
Samyang’s Linear Stepping Motor (STM) provides the high-thrust efficiency needed for fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking, thus maximizing the advantages of Sony E-Mount cameras. Compared to the previous AF 35mm F1.4 E, this new AF 35mm F1.4 E II is optimized for not only photo shooting, but also video shooting by minimizing vibration and noise. Tracking the subject accurately and quickly, the AF also operates quietly and smoothly when shooting video. Samyang's Linear STM satisfies both photographers and videographers with quieter and more accurate control of the focusing lens groups.
Delivers Extremely Narrow Depth of Field with Refined Beautiful Bokeh
The F1.4 maximum aperture of this new AF 35mm F1.4 E II lens makes it easier to capture clear images in low light, even when shooting handheld. A 9-blade circular aperture design enhances its capability for stunningly beautiful background bokeh when desired. Smooth bokeh can make subjects stand out in images with deep dimensional impact.
Enhanced Operability and Reliability
Important features of the AF 35mm F1.4 E II include: Customizable 1) Focus hold button & 2) Custom switch. Overall, this is a lens that meets professional requirements for control and reliability, for both stills and videos.
1) Focus Hold Button
Pressing this button on the lens will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. You can assign functions such as Eye AF in settings on the camera body.
2) Custom Switch
There is a custom switch, which can be set to allow adjustment of the aperture silently, by rotating the focus ring. Using the optional Lens Station, you can set up the mode to suit your own preference*.
(*More functions will be added through firmware updates in the future)
Short Minimum Focal Distance 11.4" (0.29m)
Minimum focal distance is just 11.4" (0.29m), making the lens even more versatile. It is possible to produce unique perspective close to the subject and makes it easier to take portraits with exaggerated features, food on tables, etc.
Modern Design & Weather-Sealing
The AF 35mm F1.4 E II has been developed and enhanced, taking into consideration not only the design but also the user's shooting environment. It has an aluminum focus ring, which feels great to operate and the weather-sealing (in 4 areas) also protects the lens from light rain, snow and dust.
