Samyang, also known as Rokinon in United States, just officially announced its new lens for Sony’s full-frame mirrorless bodies. The new 85mm f/1.4 FE lens is comprised of 11 glass elements, and has 9 aperture blades. Samyang claims that the lens delivers sharpness, while maintaining beautiful bokeh.
The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 2.95 feet (90 cm), sports a 77mm filter thread and is quite lightweight for a 85mm f/1.4 lens, coming in at 568 grams. In comparison, Sony’s very own 85mm f/1.4 GM lens weighs 820 grams!
The pricing and release date in the U.S. is yet to be announced, but it is expected the lens will go for €699 in Europe.
