Samyang announce a brand new 35mm f/1.4 lens to cover both APS-C and full-frame

DSLR sensor sizes. The latest Samyang lens, shown on the company’s

stand at the Focus on Imaging show 2011, is anticipated to retail for

the highly-affordable price of £320.

The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 IF UMC Aspherical lens is constructed of 12 elements in 10 groups (1 aspherical lens), has a 43.2° angle of view, minimum focusing distance of 30cm and takes a 77mm filter

the lens for Canon EOS, Nikon, Sony Alpha, Pentax K-mount, Micro Four

Thirds (Olympus & Panasonic) and Samsung NX fittings.

Talking

to Samyang representatives at the show, What Digital Camera can reveal

that the company is seeking a UK distributor to releases its lenses in

the UK. This could mean a wide variety of affordable Samyang lenses will soon become more readily available.
