The maximum aperture of the budget-friendly Rokinon AF 135mm FE portrait lens is unknown at the moment. In terms of the affordable sales price, our thought is that the max. aperture would be f/2.8.

Other Samyang autofocus lenses in the lineup are the AF 14mm F2.8 FE and AF 50mm F1.4 FE. The upcoming optic will probably feature Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) of Samyang Optics.

The Samyang AF 135mm FE lens is on the horizon. Official announcement might happen soon. Stay tuned with us for more information.
