Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE II Lens for Sony in More Detail

Updated 2nd Generation AF 35mm F1.4 FE Lens

This second generation evolution of Samyang’s full frame standard prime lens is optimised for portraits, landscapes and shooting videos. It includes Samyang's key features to optimise your workflow, with a focus hold button and custom switch. This new AF 35mm f/1.4 FE II joins the recently updated AF 35mm f/1.4 FE II Lens, bringing the latest technology for Sony photographers and videographers.

Corner to Corner Sharpness

Two ASP aspherical elements deliver strong contrast as well as striking resolution. Advanced coating technology has also been applied, which maintains superb image clarity, even in challenging lighting conditions.

The corner to corner sharpness is maintained even wide open at the maximum f/1.4 aperture, resulting in consistent optical performance at all exposure settings. Samyang has also included their CCI (Colour Contribution Index) technology for clearer images.

Faster, More Precise Quiet Autofocus

The Linear Stepping Motor (STM) found in newer Samyang lenses provides the high efficiency for fast, precise, quiet AF and AF tracking. This enables users to take advantage of advanced AF performance found in Sony E-Mount cameras. Compared to the previous gen, this new AF 35mm F1.4 FE II is optimised for not only stills photography, but also video, by minimising vibration and noise.

AF also operates quietly and smoothly when shooting video, with great subject tracking capabilities thanks to Samyang's Linear STM.

Shallow Depth of Field with Refined Bokeh

The maximum f/1.4 aperture makes it easier to capture sharp and low noise images in low light when shooting handheld. A 9-bladed circular aperture enhances the lens’ capability for stunning beautiful background bokeh when desired. This makes the lens ideal for naturally lit portraits where the subject is separated from backgrounds, or street scenes and other subjects where this effect is desirable. Some of the advantages of why get a 35mm lens are outlined in our buying guide here.

Improved Reliability And Streamlined Control

A customisable Focus hold button and Custom switch are included in this lens, making it suited to anyone from beginner to professional level.

1. Focus Hold Button

Pressing this button on the lens will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance and you can also assign functions such as Eye AF from the camera body menu.

2. Custom Switch

The custom switch can be set up to allow adjustment of the aperture silently, by rotating the focus ring. Using the optional Lens Station for Sony FE, you can set up the mode to suit your own preference.

Greater Versatility With Short Minimum Focus

The minimum focal distance of just 29cm (0.95ft), makes the lens even more versatile, enabling users to capture unique perspectives extremely close to their subject. This lends itself to dynamic portraits with exaggerated features, food photography and more.

Updated Lens Design With Weather Sealing

The AF 35mm F1.4 FE II has been developed and enhanced for outdoor use. It has a smooth and pleasing aluminium focus ring, and weather sealing in four areas to protect the lens from light rain, snow and dust.
