116.6° Ultra Wide-Angle with beautiful bokeh…
Inside the lens, there are 15 elements in 10 groups, including 2 aspherical elements, 4 highrefractive (HR) elements and 1 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element to minimise distortion and chromatic aberrations, for crystal clear resolution. This lens offers a powerful 116.6 degrees wide angle-of-view. It also features 7 rounded aperture blades, which help to create beautiful bokeh (out-of focus backgrounds) in portraits, still-lifes and night-time cityscapes.
Faster, accurate and quieter Auto Focus performance…
The AF 14mm F2.8 F autofocus function is upgraded with Samyang’s advanced technology. The lens offers faster, more accurate and quieter autofocus performance than previous AF 14mm F2.8 lenses.
Capture vivid images anytime, anywhere…
This compact ultra wide-angle lens weighs only 484g (without lens cap and hood). The lens also features weather-sealing and a built-in AF/MF switch for increased usability. With a minimum focus distance of just 20cm, it is possible to capture more vivid close-up images of portraits, pets, food etc., anytime, anywhere.
