Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE Review


The Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE is a moderate wide-angle prime lens for full-frame and APS-C Sony mirrorless cameras. The Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE is comprised of 7 elements in 6 groups including 2 aspherical glass elements and 1 high refractive lens, and employs an iris diaphragm with seven rounded aperture blades. It’s the third Samyang lens to feature auto-focusing and has a minimum focusing distance of 35cm/1.14ft and a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.12x. The Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE lens retails for £279 in the UK and $399 in the US, where it’s known as the Rokinon AF 35mm f/2.8 FE.
