The Samyang 85mm f/1.8 UMC Lens is specifically designed for mirrorless APS-C and MFT cameras. Perfect for portrait photography, it combines a medium telephoto focal length with its bright f/1.8 aperture to create beautifully shallow depth of field results.
Medium-Telephoto Focal Range
With an equivalent 135mm (APS-C) or 170mm (MFT) focal length, the lens is great for creating background separation from your subject, ensuring the viewers attention is focused solely on the area in focus. Common with portrait and wedding photography, this style removes all background and foreground distractions to create a stunning cinematic feel.
Compact, Lightweight Design
Weighing only approximately 300 grams, the lens fits in with the mirrorless ethos, complementing the smaller, travel-friendly camera bodies of most mirrorless systems.
Manual Focus & Manual Aperture Control
Its size is possible without a compromise in image quality thanks to the lack of electronics contained in the lens. With its manual focusing system and manual aperture ring, the lens invites you to slow down your shooting process, encouraging you to take a more measured approach and consider your focus, composition and depth of field before pressing the shutter.
Ultra-Multi Coated Optics
An optical construction which consists of nine elements in seven groups help deliver edge to edge sharpness. A high-refractive and extra-low dispersion lens are combined with an ultra multi-coating to supress chromatic aberration and deliver excellent colour accuracy.
Includes Lens Hood
The Samyang 85mm f/1.8 UMC is a great option for portrait shooters on a budget. Its excellent image quality and fast f/1.8 maximum aperture ensure suitability in a broad range of lighting scenarios. A lens hood is included to reduce lens flare while also providing protection for the front lens element.
