Samyang’s 135mm F2.0 ED UMC Telephoto Lens (full-frame)
A manual focus telephoto lens for full frame and smaller sensor sizes. It expresses vibrant colour and soft bokeh, making this the ideal lens for shooting portrait, scenery, wildlife and photo-journalism. The fast F2.0 aperture allows versatile control when shooting under tricky lighting conditions. The lens features 11 elements in 7 groups, including extra low dispersion (ED) to offer high resolution across the image. Samyang’s Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) is used to optimise light transmission whilst minimising flare and ghosting. Close focus is 0.8m and the floating element design captures as much light as possible, minimising spherical aberration and distortion. The body is compact and solid, made of high-strength aluminium alloy and the detachable lens hood protects from flare and ghosting.
