Samyang AF 75mm f/1.8 FE Lens to be Announced on April 20th

Samyang Korea has leaked the upcoming AF 75mm f/1.8 FE lens for Sony E-mount. This lens will be officially announced on April 20th, 2020. You can take a look at product page of this lens at Samyang Korea.

We have designed a lens that is easy to carry and has a vivid resolution that can capture the beauty of everyday life and people. The large-diameter lens with an F1.8 aperture and the excellent optical system create a brilliant, round light that further emphasizes the subject. Feel the newly reborn AF 75mm with the AF system and Custom Switch, which have developed another stage.

Optimized for portraits (portraits), the AF 75mm F1.8 FE is compact and lightweight, with outstanding performance and versatile features. It weighs only 230g and is the strongest compact size among the commercially available 75mm autofocus, so you can capture the beauty of everyday life and people anytime, anywhere.
In addition, the sophisticated optical system designed with Sanyo’s unique technology has achieved amazing resolution. In particular, the spherical aberration is effectively corrected so that beautiful blurring can be expressed with a large aperture of F1.8, and the optimum optical path has been designed so that the background can be beautifully blurred.
The new STM (Stepping Motor), which realizes quiet and accurate AF performance, helps to capture more natural portraits. Since it is possible to switch to Aperture Control Mode with Custom Switch, you can freely select the shooting mode according to your preference. Enjoy Sanyo’s next-generation lenses that combine new angles of view and technology.

The smallest and lightest AF 75mm

  • The surprisingly light weight of 230g and the height of 69mm reduces the burden on the photographer and maximizes portability with a small size that perfectly matches the small volume mirrorless camera. Feel the sharp image quality with a compact single lens for people that you can easily carry around.

    75mm single focus lens reborn modern

    • The angle of view of the portrait lens, which has been traditionally loved since the era of film cameras, is 75mm. Sanyo Optics has reborn the 75mm lens that has disappeared from people’s memory, changing from Range Finder to SLR to a mirrorless camera. Enjoy the legendary 75mm angle of view that captures the story and the person at once through AF.

      The best portraits created by shallow depth

      Depth of field does not just come out with the aperture. When a large, round ball of light and a clean background blur and high contrast strike the perfect balance, the subject and background are effectively separated, creating an impressive sense of depth. Sanyo’s unique optical design that realizes completely different depth expressions even with similar angles of view and apertures will further enhance your everyday life and record.
