    Photokina, Global optics brand, Samyang Optics will announce its long-awaited first premium lens line-up: 85mm F1.2 and 14mm F2.4. This launch is a cornerstone for Samyang Optics to become a ‘Total Imaging Solution’ brand along with the introduction and expansion of autofocus lenses and XEEN lenses.

    Founded in 1972 in South Korea, Samyang Optics has been the representative of Korean optics industry. With over 40 years of research and development in optics, Samyang integrates the essence of history and introduces a signature lens line-up of Samyang. “We believe a lens is one of the foremost elements in photography and videography”, says Haejin Lee, the head of Samyang Research Centre. He continues, “to create a signature Samyang Lens series, we have reviewed all the meetings and talks with photographers and cinematographers from past decades. They always return to one concept, the image quality. And it’s what we are after.”

    85mm f/1.2 and 14mm f/2.4 manual focus lenses inherit and upgrade the eminent Samyang’s image quality to the next level. The new Samyang Lenses have unprecedented resolving power, matched with 50 megapixels photo and 8K video productions. The two lenses enable you to capture life-long memories in everlasting image quality. Bokeh, out-focusing, starburst effect creates unforgettable images. Photographers can rely on the lens under various conditions. The resolving power contains abundant pixel information, allowing photographers the freedom in post-production to create unique images of their own. Also, the minimised aberration enhance the clarity of images.

    The f/1.2 85mm lens is, by far, the brightest lens in existing full frame DSLR lenses, securing the fastest shutter speed. It has ten elements in seven groups, applying one aspherical lens and two high refractive lenses. The aspherical lens minimises aberration and unnecessary light dispersion. Two high refractive lenses effectively adjust the path of light and deliver the maximum amount to the sensor for clear and vibrant images.

    The 14mm f/2.4 lens is equipped with the most advanced optical technology among Samyang Lenses. It has 18 glass elements in 14 groups including four different special optics: two aspherical lenses, one hybrid aspherical lens, two extra-low dispersion lenses and one high refractive lens. This optimal performance creates impressive image quality from the centre and to the corner of images.

    Also, the design itself is the statement. Aluminium alloy metal is adopted for maximum durability. With a sleek yet unprecedented design with flowing curves, this signature line-up is a one-of-a-kind lens. The usability is maximized with a considerate diameter of 93~95mm.

    In pursuit of image quality itself, Samyang will continue to develop premium manual focus lenses in response to the demands of professionals and will compete with world famous optics brands in quality and design. The lenses will be globally available in 2016, with suggested retail prices announced at a later date.

  • This might be a great combo with an EF Adapter that has ND built in for a mirrorless Sony, Panasonic etc. This way you could dial in the ND from the adapter and not have to worry about front of the lens ND solutions.

  • Similar to Irix 15mm Lens ? Probably not a coincidence.

  • Similar to Irix 15mm Lens ? Probably not a coincidence.

    No, I think we had similar suggestions in Irix topic. Optical scheme is different even.

  • The design cross-section shown above is obviously incorrect.

    The Samyang 14mm f/2.4 lens is a very high class performer and also a very exciting lens to use. Manual focusing lends itself to use on a tripod with critical focusing, and when this is done the sharpness of the results can be stunning.

    Samyang Premium MF 14mm f/2.4 is very high quality, ultra-wide-angle lens for full-frame DSLR and mirrorless cameras. In terms of image quality, sharpness is outstanding when shooting wide-open at f/2.4, becoming even better from f/4 onwards, and the edges are just as sharp as the centre.
