Samyang Optics has introduced a new lens line-up for Sony E-Mount full frame mirrorless cameras. Samyang has announced it will be introducing 5 lenses to a newly announced family of optics designed to be used with Sony E-Mount Full-Frame Mirrorless cameras.
The new V-AF family has been designed specifically for video creators, to make content creation more convenient. The first lens from this new line-up is the V-AF 75mm T1.9. Samyang will release four more lenses – 20mm, 24mm, 35mm & 45mm – before the end of 2023.
A unified form factor that’s compact & light
All V-AF lenses provide greater compatibility with gimbals and drones because they all have the same form factor across 5 different focal lengths (ultra-wide to medium-telephoto). Compact dimensions of 73mm x 70mm and a light weight of less than 300g, means there is no need to re-set equipment when changing lenses.
Tally lamp for enhanced functionality
The tally lamp located on the front of the lens indicates to the presenter whether video is being recorded or not. It means video content creation is more convenient, even in small spaces and without a lot of equipment.
Supports colour-matched 8K recording
The new V-AF series supports resolutions up to 8K and all lenses are colour-matched to avoid shifts when swapping lenses. Nine aperture blades create a superb, natural-looking bokeh.
Custom Switch & Button
The lens features a custom switch and button that enables access to video-specific functions, such as Focus Save, quickly and easily.
