The lens with a focal length of 135mm is one of the photographers’ favorite telephoto portrait lenses. That’s why Samyang launched a 135mm F1.8 lens for Sony mirrorless camera users with E-mount.
Features of Samyang 135mm F1.8
With the presence of this lens, it means that Samyang already has 5 collections of prime lenses with autofocus. Previously, 24mm, 35mm, 45mm and 75mm lenses were available.
Like a 135mm lens in general, this lens comes with quite large dimensions. The body length is about 130mm and weighs about 772 grams. The design has also been made weather resistant. So, it is safe to use for shooting outdoors when weather conditions are uncertain.
The Samyang 135mm F1.8 features a 13-element design in 11 groups, including three low-dispersion lens elements, two high-refractive index lens elements and one aspherical lens element.
In the autofocus sector, the Samyang 135mm F1.8 supports the autofocus system. Carrying linear stepping motor technology, this lens promises fast and quiet autofocus performance.
For other features on the Samyang 135mm F1.8, users can find a focus hold button, customizable buttons, and a focus distance limiter (can only be used in Autofocus mode).
Price Samyang 135mm F1.8
The Samyang 135mm F1.8 is planned to be available on the market in March 2022. The price for the Samyang 135mm F1.8 is US$999. If you are interested, this lens can be pre-ordered through the Samyan g website.
