Samyang Press Release
Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC – bright lens suitable for any occasion
Samyang Optics presents new, exceptionally bright and semi wide-angle manual lens - Samyang 35 mm F1.4 AS UMC
Sophisticated optics of Samyang 35mm F1.4 UMC has been constructed upon twelve elements arranged in ten groups. The lens comes with two lenses made of the glass with high refraction factor, which reduces its weight and dimensions. Moreover, one aspherical lens minimizes the risk of chromatic aberration. Owing to the high-quality multi-layer coatings, our lens provides high contrast and faithful color imaging. Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC uses the system of the so called “floating” lenses allowing to preserve high image quality with minimum focusing distance.
Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC was constructed to fit most popular reflexive cameras with small sensors. 35mm focal length has universal applications. When attached to the small sensor camera, the lens will act as bright, wide-angle lens perfect for landscape and reporting shooting. The same lens mounted on the camera with APS-C sensor, will become a popular, multitask 50mm lens. In case of cameras with 3:4 system, Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC will turn into a short, bright portrait lens with 70mm focal length equivalent.
Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC has been designed with great care for the smallest details and perfect style. This applies both to optics and workmanship, which place the lens among the best photographic products worldwide.
Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC is to feature mount for the following systems: Canon, 4:3, Nikon, Pentax, Samsung NX and Sony Alpha. All information concerning the date of release and price will be available at the end of September.
