Samyang has just officially announced the Rokinon AF 35mm F2.8 FE for Sony E mounts. It is a tiny lens with a mighty performance for daily photography as well as travel photography. This new compact and lightweight lens, together with the existing AF 14mm F2.8 FE and AF 50mm F1.4 FE lenses, now expands Samyang’s autofocus lens line-up to three.
The AF 35mm F2.8 FE weighs just 85g and measures 3.3cm in length, without the hood and rear cap. Thanks to Samyang’s exceptional optical technology, its compact size is packed with features for outstanding image quality. Featuring seven elements in six groups, two aspherical lenses and one high refractive lens plus Ultra Multi Coating to minimise aberration and unnecessary light dispersion, the lens delivers high resolution from the centre to the corners of the image. The Korean pricing is ￦349000 (about $299). This is $500 cheaper than the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 FE lens (Amazon, B&H, Adorama).
