The Samyang 85mm F1.4 AS IF UMC Lens - Nikon Mount with AE is a version of the Samyang 85mm for Nikon Mount and features an electronic circuit / CPU which allows for full control of exposure parameters accessible from Nikon Digital SLR cameras, including i-TTL flash communication with EXIF data. All exposure parameters are stored in the cameras RAW / jpeg EXIF. data, for future reference.
The 85mm features UMC (Ultra Multi Coatings) which promote a high level of light transmission, and adds further resistance to flare and ghosting. The 85mm F1.4 Lens is a manual focus prime designed to give exceptional results at wide apertures. At F1.4 great images can be obtained, which is perfect for portraiture and low light shooting.
The Samyang 85mm is designed for full frame cameras and also cropped sensors, including APS-C sensors, where it gives approximately a 120mm focal length equivalent. The bokeh (the character of the out-of-focus blur) is a primary concern for professionals choosing an ultra large aperture lens for shallow depth-of-field photography. The Samyang 85mm F1.4 Lens design offers excellent bokeh quality with a superior 8-blade circular aperture.
The Lens’s optical construction comprises of 9 lenses divided into 7 optical groups with one aspheric lens element. It features internal focusing (IF) meaning the lens does not increase in size when focusing. A further positive aspect to internal focusing is that the lens is much less likely to get dust inside.
The Samyang 85 mm F1.4 Lens should be a serious consideration to all professional or amateur photographers in need of a fast yet intricate prime lens at a reasonable price.
