The Samyang 50mm F1.4 AS UMC Lens - Canon Mount is a standard focal length prime lens, with full frame compatibility (50mm). It is also suitable for smaller APS-C sensor cameras (75mm equivalent).
Offering a 46.2 degrees (full frame) field of view with a fast aperture of f/1.4, the 50mm is superb for low light shooting and shallow depth of field photography where separation of the subject from the background is desired and beautiful bokeh with a circular aperture with 8 blades.
Optics of the lens consists of nine lens elements arranged in six groups (including one aspherical and one hybrid aspherical lens element). The Hybrid glass aspherical lens (H-ASP) minimises colour aberration to produce exceptional image quality and high contrast for throughout the image, from centre to the corners, even for wide apertures. The aspherical element (ASP) further helps to produce the highest resolution and sharpness throughout the image. To ensure high contrast and faithful colour reproduction, all lens elements have been covered with Samyang's multi-layered UMC anti-reflective coatings.
