Samyang announces full-frame AF 135mm f/1.8 lens for Sony mirrorless cameras

Samyang Corporation, which also sells its lenses under the Rokinon brand in the US, has recently expanded its autofocus f/1.8 series line-up, has now introduced the AF 135mm F1.8 FE lens, equipped with various additional functions to meet the new demands of many people who have used the existing MF 135mm F2.0 lens. 

The new AF 135mm f/1.8 FE telephoto lens is said to be optimized for portraits, astrophotography, landscapes and video shooting. It includes popular features, such as focus lock button and a custom switch, but also Samyang’s new focus range limiter switch. It will be available in Sony FE mount, but can also be used with APS-C Sony mirrorless cameras.

With this announcement of the new Samyang/Rokinon AF 135mm F1.8 FE, the Auto Focus F1.8 FE series now includes: 24mm, 35mm, 45mm, 75mm and 135mm focal lengths, completing the line-up, from wide-angle to telephoto.

The AF 135mm f/1.8 FE uses a large-diameter 11-blade aperture to provide smooth background blur and effectively allows separation of the subject from the background, by using a shallow depth of field. It is also equipped with am Ultra-precision Aspherical lens, which delivers natural and refined bokeh.
