Samyang officially announces 24mm F2.8 AF lens, available in July for $400

Just a week after we came across leaked images of the lens, Samyang has unveiled its latest Sony autofocus lens, the AF 24mm F2. 8 FE. Samyang calls the lens tiny but wideand rightly so.

This lens weighs just 93g and measures 37mm from front to back without the hood or rear lens cap. The FE mount means it works with full-frame Sony cameras, including but not limited to the A9 and A7 IIII.

The optical design of the lens is made up of 7 elements in 7 groups. Three of the optical elements are aspherical lenses and two are high-refractive lenses. The lens also features ultra multi coating, which helps minimize chromatic aberration and undesired light dispersion.

As the leaked images suggested, the lens features a minimum focusing distance of just 0. 24m/0. 79ft and has a rubberized focus ring for when you want to take things manual.

The Samyang AF 24mm F2. 8, which retails under the brand name Rokinon in the United States, will be available in July for $400.

Samyangs Next FE Lens Could Be 135mm

Korean lens maker Samyang has been known to throw out teasers when they have new lenses in the works and staying true to form, the company is at it yet again. There have been SAR reports over the last several months about some possible Samyang FE lenses that were in development but until now nothing from the company indicated that a new lens was actually incoming.
