A True Bokeh Monster

The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 encapsulates the 40-year experience of their optical innovation. Designed for the Sony FE mount, this full-frame autofocus lens is a bokeh monster. Built specifically to help you separate your foreground and background, it’s shallow depth of field characteristics empower you to create beautiful, atmospheric images that naturally draws the eye of the viewer to your subject.

Ideal for Portrait Photography

Perfect for portraits and street photography the ultra-fast f/1.4 aperture is constructed from a 9-aperture blade design that forms a circular diaphragm which produces the smoothest, beautifully rendered out-of-focus areas in your images.

Excellent Exposure Versatility

A real weapon when shooting in low-light scenarios, the bright aperture provides additional shooting versatility when exposing your images, giving you more creative control when trying to balance shutter speed, exposure, and depth-of-field.

HR and ED Optical Elements

Its internal construction consists of 11 glass elements in 8 groups which work to deliver razor sharp detail with eye-catching contrast and excellent colour fidelity. The four High Refractive elements and an Extra-Low dispersion element incorporated into the design minimises flare while reducing chromatic aberrations and delivering excellent edge-to-edge sharpness.

Compact, Lightweight Design

The four HR elements also allow for a much more compact design, reducing what is traditionally a moderately large and heavy lens to a unit that measure 99.5mm in length and weighs only 586g.

Fast, Accurate, Quiet Auto Focusing

The autofocus ability of the 85mm f1.4 is delivered via a Dual Linear Sonic Motor (DLSM). Using ultra-sonic vibrations to control the focusing motor allows for a near-silent focusing experience, well suited to noise-sensitive shooting environments such as wedding ceremonies and perfect for shooting video.

Suits Sony FE mount and Sony E Mount

Important for critical focusing accuracy when shooting wide open, the high frequency focus lock signals are combined with Samyang’s proprietary protocols to deliver fast, consistent autofocus performance across the entire range of Sony’s full frame FE-Mount and APS-C E-mount range.

Weather Sealed Aluminium Exterior

The exterior of the Samyang 85mm f/1.4 AF Lens is made from lightweight yet rugged aluminium exterior. Designed for professionals and serious enthusiasts, the lens also features weather sealing to protect its interior for dirt, dust and rain while equipping you with the confidence to shoot in adverse weather conditions to create truly memorable images.
