Very versatile normal focal length with very high speed
This normal lens is suitable for many areas of application: From portraits to product and detail photography to street and landscape photography, the lens is ideally suited. The very high speed of F1.4 gives you the possibility to work with short exposure times and without flash even in low light conditions, for example at weddings, in buildings of all kinds or at dusk. Even if you want to capture the city lights at night, you can achieve short exposure times thanks to the large open aperture. The subject is rendered crisp and in the highest detail. The lens is suitable for all Sony mirrorless cameras, whether full-frame or APS-C sensor.
Smaller and lighter - always with you
With a weight of only 492 g and a length of 8.9 cm, the lens is significantly smaller and lighter than its predecessor. It is one of the most compact AF 50mm lenses available for Sony mirrorless cameras. This makes it the ideal standard lens to have with you at all times.
Excellent imaging performance - even at open aperture
By using the highest quality lenses - 11 elements in 8 groups - and employing 6 special lenses (2x ASP, 3x HR and 1x ED), you can achieve outstanding sharpness performance. The Samyang UMC coating effectively reduces flares and ghosting. The Samyang AF 50mm F1.4 MK2 Sony E delivers outstanding image results even at open aperture F1.4, topping its predecessor.
Impressive background blur - beautiful bokeh
The fast open aperture of F1.4 allows the main subject to be separated from the background easily, ideal for portrait photography, for example. The 9 aperture blades ensure a pleasant and natural bokeh.
Fast, quiet autofocus - reduced "focus pumping"
With a noise level of just 26.78 dB, the lens makes virtually no audible noise, making it ideal for use when filming. It is thus significantly quieter than its predecessor (45.90 dB). The linear stepping motor (LSTM) guides the focus quickly and precisely as usual. The notorious "focus pumping" does not occur, and the frame hardly changes at all during focusing. Ideal conditions, therefore, not only for photo but also for video recordings.
Freely assignable custom switch, separate focus hold button
The custom switch known from Samyang is also built into this lens. For example, the aperture control and manual focus via the forkus ring are assigned to the two switch positions ex works. The focus hold button stores the focus setting and can perform other tasks depending on the camera model. The Custom Switch can be assigned various functions via the Lens Station, which can be purchased separately.
Weather protection - ready for all adventures
The integrated Saymang Weather Sealing reliably prevents dust, dirt or moisture from entering the lens. So you can also reliably capture motifs that only come into their own in adverse weather conditions.
