The Samyang 24mm F1.4 ED AS UMC Lens is a high quality, fast aperture, prime wide angle lens for full frame or APS-C sized sensors. It is ideal for full-frame cameras, constituting a high-quality wide-angle lens perfect for shooting street, landscape and architecture even in low light conditions. The sharpness if excellent, even at the edges of the frame at wide apertures, and the fast F1.4 aperture is able to give a narrow depth of field when needed.
This Auto Exposure (AE) chip version of the Samyang 24mm lens features an electronic circuit which allows for full control of exposure parameters accessible from the camera. On Nikon bodies this functionality includes i-TTL flash communication and EXIF data with all Nikon Digital SLR cameras (both full frame FX and cropped DX bodies).
The Samyang 24mm F1.4 ED AS UMC is a manual focus lens. The manual focus ring is wide, easily accessible and perfectly adaptable to most photographic applications. Accurate focus at very close distance or focus critical situations can be achieved through use of focusing in live view mode, available to most newer camera models. Furthermore the 24mm provides lovely bokeh (the character of out-of-focus areas), due to its design and fast aperture. Optical construction of the Samyang 24mm lens features 13 elements arranged in 12 groups, 4 of them low-dispersion glass (ED), and 2 of them aspherical. The 24mm is Ultra Multi Coated (UMC) for the best possible light transmission, and reduction of ghosting and flare. Supplied with detachable petal shaped lens hood, lens caps and soft lens bag. Filter size is 77mm.
- Extra low dispersion (ED)
- Glass aspherical lenses (AS)
- 8 circular aperture blades
- Ultra Multi Coating (UMC)
- F1.4 wide apertures
- Internal focusing (IF)
Low dispersion lenses decrease dispersion of unnecessary light so that make aberration little effectively.
Glass aspherical lenses
The adaption glass aspherical lenses reproduce aberration to get high quality image in centre and edge of frame and excellent contrast.
8 circular aperture blades
This lens is designed to have 8 circular aperture blades to render beautiful buttery bokeh.
Ultra Multi Coating (UMC)
Samyang applies the UMC (Ultra Multi Coating) of their own technology to reduce flare and ghost as much as possible and get clear and fresh colour image.
F1.4 wide aperture
Smooth focal control gives you precise adjustment and also F1.4 wide aperture gives you touching photography.
Internal focusing (IF)
The internal focusing controls focusing inside of barrels so that is so free from contamination of dust.
