This macro lens with vivid colour and soft out-focusing is the best lens for close-up images of flower and insects. It also can be used as a 100mm telephoto lens for landscapes and portraits.
Samyang 100mm F2.8 ED UMC Macro has a low F number of F2.8. You may control the lens precisely when shooting under various exposure environment including relatively dark or too bright situations.
This lens features 15 lenses in 12 groups especially including a high refractive lens (HR) and extra low dispersion lens (ED) to minimize colour aberration and unnecessary light dispersion in order to offer high resolution throughout the image. Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) of Samyang Optics is used to optimise the light penetration and minimises flare and ghost. With such optical construction, it has 0.307m of minimum focal length to film subjects in a very near distance.
There are 9 aperture blades designed to be almost as a full circle when aperture is closed which expresses starlike ray clearly and beautifully. The frame of the lens is compact and solid since it is made of high-strength aluminium alloy so you can create trustworthy images. The detachable petal-shaped lens hood minimizes flare and ghost by sheltering the lens from unnecessary light.
