Samyang 50mm F1.4 MK2 UMC II Auto Focus Sony FE Full Frame Camera Lens
To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Samyang Optics' first AF lens, the AF 50mm F1.4 FE, is newly released. The AF 50mm F1.4 FE is a versatile, standard AF lens that has been loved by many mirrorless camera users for the last 5 years.
Meet the new AF 50mm F1.4 FE MK2, the lightest standard lens with a large-aperture compatible with Sony FE mount. The AF 50mm F1.4 FE MK2 features a more precise and faster AF with excellent performance!
1. Smallest & Lightest Large-Aperture Standard Lens
2. Ultra-precision aspherical lenses offer soft and beautiful bokeh
3. New modern design with matt finish and red ring
4. Fast & quiet AF and well-controlled breathing for shooting video
Smallest & Lightest Large-Aperture Standard Lens
The AF 50mm F1.4 FE MK2 is the smallest (88.9mm in length) and lightest (weighing 420g) among all the large-aperture standard 50mm focal length lenses compatible with the Sony FE mount, so it's even a perfect match to compact Sony mirrorless cameras with a gimbal.
Excellent Resolution in All Areas of the Image
Optimum resolution is achieved through the 6 special glasses (2 U-ASP, 3 HR and 1 ED) among the optical design of 11 elements in 8 groups. Combined with Sony's full-frame image sensor, this lens delivers superior sharpness and contrast in all areas of the image.
Impressive Background Blur and Bokeh with Bright F1.4 Aperture
The AF 50mm F1.4 FE MK2 uses a large-diameter aperture to provide smooth background blur. It effectively separates the subject from the background, using a shallow depth of field and adding drama to the scene. Also, it is equipped with UA (Ultra-precision Aspherical) lenses, so you can enjoy the natural and refined bokeh. Using this smooth bokeh, you can freely create photos highlighting your subject!
Advanced Fast and Quiet AF for Stills and Movies
Tracking the subject accurately and quickly, the AF also operates quietly and smoothly when shooting video. Samyang's Linear STM (Stepping Motor) satisfies both photographers and videographers with quieter and more accurate control of the focusing lens groups.
Less Breathing for Shooting Video
The optical design minimizes focus breathing, which is especially advantageous for video recording. There is almost no change in the angle of view when adjusting the focus from close focus to infinity, so you can experience professional cinematic effects during shooting video with the subject moving forward or backward, or focusing from the front or back.
Focus Hold Button & Custom Switch to Maximize Usability
Focus Hold Button
Pressing this button on the lens will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. You can assign functions such as Eye AF in settings on the camera body.
There is a custom switch, which can be set to allow adjustment of the aperture silently by rotating the focus ring. Using the optional Lens Station, you can set up the mode to suit your own preference*.
* More functions will be added through firmware updates in the future.
Short Minimum Focusing Distance
The minimum focusing distance is just 0.40m (1.31ft), so it is versatile and possible to produce a unique perspective close to the subject. This makes it easier to take close-up and dramatic shots of food, portraits and nature.
Weather-Sealing Design and New Design
The usability of the AF 50mm F1.4 FE MK2 lens has been developed and enhanced, taking into consideration not only the design but also the user's shooting environment. It has a micro-patterned rubber focus ring, so feels great to operate and weather-sealing also protects the lens from light rain, snow and dust. The matte finish and the subtle red ring (dependent on viewing angle) give it a modern feel.
