The Samyang 75mm F1.8 Auto Focus UMC II for Sony E Full Frame Lens not only brings back the true classic portrait focal length of the past but it is a remarkable high-performance compact portrait prime for modern mirrorless Sony cameras.
Optimized for the shorter lens to sensor distance of mirrorless cameras the Samyang 75mm F1.8 Auto Focus UMC II offers the best resolution possible in a compact and light package - perfect for location portraits or events. A 9-bladed aperture produces smooth circular bokeh rendition and UMC lens coating effectively reduces ghosting and flaring.
Samyang's Linear STM Autofocus is both fast and quiet for precise focus you can rely on even while filming. Additionally, a custom switch allows you to change the focus ring function between focus and aperture.
Samyang is bringing back the old standard in portrait focal lengths with their new 75mm F1.8 AF UMC II for Sony E mount cameras. Before the change to 85mm brought on by SLR cameras 75mm used to be the focal length you went for when shooting portraits. Since modern mirrorless cameras don't require the 'dead space' used for the mirror in a DSLR, lenses like this one can both be made smaller and with less optical compromises.
The AF 75mm F1.8 performs flawlessly regardless of place, object or surroundings with excellent image quality from the very centre of the frame to the edge.
A 9-bladed aperture helps to produce pleasing bokeh (out of focus areas) with a circular nature. When shooting stopped down to a small aperture this lens will create a clear 18 rays star or sunburst effect around bright in-the-scene light sources.
Samyang's Linear STM Technology offers precise and fast autofocus enables to capture any moment. With Linear STM, autofocus noise during video shooting is almost completely eliminated.
Switch it up by assigning the control ring function to how you prefer working. With two different modes customizable through Samyang's optional lens station, you can easily change between having a manual focus ring or a ring to change aperture right there on the lens.
