Expanded Samyang AF 50mm f1.4 II Lens for Sony E Key Features:

Image Quality & Performance

The image quality that this lens can produce is thanks to an array of features including its optical makeup, AF performance and aperture diaphragm. It would be remiss to talk about anything but the AF performance first - This is the 2nd generation version of Samyang’s first-ever AF lens and it’s safe to say that the 1st edition was a crowd-pleaser. This lens features Samyang's Linear STM (Stepping Motor) that is impressively fast and highly accurate. It also operates very smoothly and almost silently which is a massive benefit for both video and photographic applications.

This motor drives the advanced optical structure of this lens. This pathway is made up of 11 lens elements arranged into 8 groups which include 2 ASP, 3 HR, and 1 ED lenses that dramatically increase detail and reduce lens aberrations. This array of lenses deliver a 45.7 degrees angle of view on full-frame and 31.1 degrees for APS-C sensors and when combined with Sony's full-frame image sensor, the lens can capture exceptional sharpness and contrast from edge-to-edge. Finally, what steps this lens up another gear is its large-diameter 9-bladed aperture with maximum f1.4. This provides smooth background blur, effective subject-background-separation and creates beautifully natural bokeh. Moreover, this wide aperture results in excellent low-light performance!

Optimised for Video

This lens excels in stills photography when paired with Sony’s exceptional FE bodies, but these camera bodies are optimised for video and as such, this lens needed this too. This lens has been optimised to offer impressive video performance including significantly minimised focus breathing. There’s effectively no change in the angle of view when focusing and therefore next to no screen shake. The lens also features an incredibly useful custom switch that can be set so that you can adjust your aperture using the focus ring - This is incredibly useful for video as it means you can react to changes in light without having to take your eye away from the camera.

Build Quality

Samyang has redesigned this lens, refining its construction and features. This lens comes in as one of the smallest and lightest large-aperture stand prime lenses on the market, weighing just 420g and 88.9mm in length. Comparatively, this is a tiny lens when put next to other f1.4 primes out there. This iteration of the lens has also been built to offer effective and reliable weather-sealing. This sealing allows for the use of this lens in light rain, snow and dusty conditions and what’s more, it has a micro-patterned rubber focus ring that offers a tactile grip when shooting.

Does this have any lens coatings?

The lens features Samyang’s Ultra Multi Coating that contributes to minimised aberrations and unwanted light dispersion along with other specialised lens elements.

Can I use this on a crop sensor?

This can be used on both FE and E mount cameras. The lens delivers a 45.7 degrees angle of view on full-frame and 31.1 degrees for APS-C sensors.
