An effective take on a popular focal length, the Samyang 35mm F1.8 Auto Focus UMC II Sony E Full Frame Lens is a wide-angle prime mixing a lightweight and portable design with a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. This lens is specifically designed for 3 main targets: street photographers, vloggers and Instagrammers who are looking for a compact lens with high-quality output. The new lens provides outstanding corner-to-corner image quality from a maximum F1.8 aperture and its quiet autofocus and tenacious tracking performance make it a great choice for both stills and movie shooting.

The optical design incorporates two extra-low dispersion elements and a pair of aspherical elements, which help to suppress both chromatic and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness, colour accuracy, and clarity. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to reduce flare and ghosting in order to achieve higher contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.

A linear STM autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras' AF systems for quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance, and manual focus override is also available for more refined control. Additionally, a Custom Switch enables making intuitive adjustments of a variety of camera and exposure settings by rotating the lens's focusing ring.
