The bright aperture prime lens supports AF systems on Sony mirrorless cameras. It features aspherical lens, Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) of Samyang Optics and Circular aperture with 7 blades.

The price of the Samyang 35mm f/2.8 FE is 299$ in USD shipping will start from July. Overall it is $500 cheaper than the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 FE lens (Amazon, B&H).

The AF 35mm F2.8 FE weighs just 85g and measures 3.3cm in length, without the hood and rear cap. Featuring seven elements in six groups, two aspherical lenses and one high refractive lens plus Ultra Multi Coating to minimise aberration and unnecessary light dispersion, the lens delivers high resolution from the centre to the corners of the image.

This new lens is specifically designed to work in harmony with full frame mirrorless cameras in Sony E mount. For full frame sensors, the focal length resembles the human eye the most. For APS-C size image sensor cameras like Sony A6000 and A5000 series users the lens is equivalent to approximately 52mm.

Portability with mighty performance and a 35mm focal length makes this lens the best choice for daily photographers who want to capture every memory as a high quality image. The autofocus is fast and accurate and is ideal for the capture of outdoor events such as hiking, sports events and landscape photography. It also has a minimum focusing distance of 0.35m and is ideal for street, portrait and close focus photography.
