Samyang (also known as Rokinon in some parts of the world) has today announced a new lens for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras – the AF 75mm f/1.8 FE. It weighs only 230 grams, making it one of the lightest portrait full-frame lenses.
The 75mm f/1.8 joins Samyang’s growing list of compact AF lenses for FE cameras, which includes an 18mm f/2.8, 24mm f/2.4, 35mm f/2.8, and 45mm f/1.8 lenses. The brand new 75mm lens has a unique feature that’s not found on the other lenses in their lineup. What’s unique about the newest lens is a switch that allows users to adjust aperture by using the focus ring when in AF mode. It will also allow additional functions via upcoming firmware updates.
There is still no official information regarding the shipping date or price, but the lens is rumored to retail for $399.
