Samyang has just officially announced the new Samyang (Rokinon) 45mm F1.8 FE autofocus lens for Sony mirrorless cameras. It is a normal-length prime characterized by its compact design and bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. This new lens costs $399, first available for Pre-Order at B&H/ Adorama.

Rokinon 45mm f/1.8 AF Specs:
  • Compact normal-length prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 67.5mm equivalent focal length.
  • Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects and working with selective focus.
  • One extra-low dispersion element reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
  • Two aspherical elements control spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and resolution.
  • An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to individual elements in order to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and a neutral color balance.
  • The integrated autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras’ focusing systems for quick, accurate, and precise AF control. Manual focus override is also available for refining your focus position.
  • Internal focusing design maintains the overall lens length and prevents the front of the lens from rotating during use.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
  • Included lens hood helps to block stray light from causing flare and ghosting.
