Samyang 21mm and 50mm system brings camera lenses




The South Korean manufacturer Samyang lenses brings two strong light lenses specifically for system cameras. The 21mm f / 1.4 ED AS UMC and 50mm f / 1.2 AS UMC CS are available for Sony E, M Canon, Fujifilm X and Micro Four Thirds from Olympus and Panasonic.

The lenses are designed for system cameras with APS-C sensor and are not equipped with an autofocus motor. But because virtually all system cameras are equipped peaking focus, manual focus is no big problem. Besides the versions for photography, Samyang also comes with two versions specifically for filmmakers, the 21mm and 50mm T1.3 T1.5.

The 21mm f / 1.4 lens features eight elements in seven groups with three aspherical lens elements and extra-low dispersion element. UMC in the product stands for ultra-multi-coated and must combat flare and ghosting. Focusing can on objects at a distance of 28 centimeters or more. The minimum aperture is f / 22 and the diaphragm consists of nine slats. The filter size is 58 millimeters, and, depending on the mount, the lens is between 64,3 and 67,9mm and 64,3mm in longitudinal cross-section. The weight is around 290 grams.

The 50mm f / 1.2 version with a minimum aperture of f / 16 and focus distance of 50 cm, consists of nine elements in seven groups, including two aspherical ultra multi coating. The filter size is 62 millimeters, and the measurement around the whole 7.4 inches in length, depending on the mount, and 67,5mm in cross-section.

The video versions of both fixed focal length lenses feature T-markings, which is too precise focusing. Because of the serrated edge, can be made of a follow-focus systems.

From mid-October, the lenses are available. The 21mm and 50mm version for photography alternates respectively for 430 and 480 euros of ownership. The video lenses will be available for 470 or 520 euros.
