The Samyang XP Series consists of ultra-high-quality, premium manual focus lenses designed for super-high-resolution shooting!

With a convenient shooting distance that allows for creative, stunning shots, the 85mm lens is a popular choice for classic portrait photography. Even in low-light conditions, the superior optical design of ten elements, including an aspherical element and two high refractive index elements, reduces spherical distortion and chromatic aberrations while increasing image clarity and sharpness. The Ultra Multi Coating is designed to reduce ghosting and flare for improved contrast and colour fidelity, making this lens ideal for working with bright light like sunsets or backlit portraits.

The Samyang XP lens allows for beautiful bokeh, with a 9-bladed circular diaphragm for an extremely smooth, appealing artistic flair. If you’re after controlled depth of field focus shots, the extremely fast maximum aperture of f/1.2 also performs strongly in low light environments. The manual focus design allows for precise focus control, all housed in an aluminium-alloy construction, both for lightweight comfort and durable, long-lasting performance.

Developed for high-resolution photography with over 40 years of experience by Samyang Optics, the Samyang 85mm F1.2 is a premium manual focus lens with particular attention to image quality.
