January 8th, 2018, Seoul, South Korea– Global optics brand, Samyang Optics (https://www.samyanglensglobal.com) is pleased to unveil its first autofocus lens for Canon full frame DSLR cameras: AF 14mm F2.8EF. This light weight wide angle lens inherits the renowned image quality of Samyang’s wide angle series and delivers a quiet, fast and accurate autofocus system.
World Class Wide Angle Lens, Samyang 14mm
This first EF mount autofocus lens from Samyang encapsulates the brand’s universally respected optical technology, especially in the wide angle lens category.
From a total of 15 lenses in 10 groups, 7 special optic lenses have been chosen in the production of this lens, to maximise the image quality.
The use of 2 aspherical lenses, 4 high-refractive lenses, and 1 extra-low dispersion lens minimises distortion and various aberrations while producing crystal clear resolution.
The remarkably even image quality from centre to corner of the wide 116.6 degree angle of view appears distinctly on its MTF chart.
