Samyang MF 85mm F1.4 is a high performance manual lens, optimized and developed for the latest Nikon camera series with Z mount
The lens is designed for cameras with 35mm full frame sensor for superb photo and video shooting. It is ideal for the latest Nikon series mirrorless cameras with Z mount and high pixel count.
Optimal image angle - beautiful portraits
The 85 mm Samyang lens provides an ideal focal length for portraits and focuses on the essentials. On the full-frame camera, its 28.3° angle of view provides the optimum concentration on the subject. If the 85/1.4 is locked to a Nikon APS-C camera, an image angle of 19° is produced, which roughly corresponds to the image impression of a 126 mm lens. The lens is very well corrected and convinces with very good and distortion-free imaging performance. The very compact construction provides a pleasant handling with a balanced center of gravity.
High quality optics and mechanics
The lens is equipped with internal focusing and offers a close-up limit of 1m. With 9 lenses in 7 groups, it is very elaborately built, with optimum performance already expected with an open aperture. When focusing, the corresponding lens elements are shifted internally: the overall length of the lens therefore does not change, and the 72mm filter thread does not rotate during focusing. The iris diaphragm has 8 blades and thus offers an almost circular aperture pattern. The blur is reproduced harmoniously with a fine bokeh. Of course, all lens surfaces are multicoated to increase the contrast of the images and to avoid reflections. Everything is rounded off by precise mechanics, clearly latching aperture values (in 1/2 increments) and production in a high-quality metal frame.
Excellent light intensity
The superior speed of this Samyang lens allows the use of short exposure times or lower ISO values. This significantly reduces image noise. The large aperture with a shallower depth of field optimizes the position of the focal plane in the viewfinder. A practical secondary benefit of the high light intensity is the highlighting/clearance of the subject against a blurred foreground or background.
Innovative design and weather protection
The lens is not only technically outstanding but also in appearance. It interprets the design of the mirrorless cameras in a new way. The camera and lens thus form a harmonious duo. The high-quality 85mm F1.4 lens has a compact design despite the solid metal housing. The focus ring is frosted, which not only looks good on the lens, but also gives the photographer a good grip. The lens is equipped with Samyang's own weather protection and resists snow or light rain showers.
Advantages of a full frame lens on a camera with APS-C sensor
The Samyang MF 14mm F2.8 is designed to be used on a full frame camera. Of course you can also use it on cameras with smaller sensors, e.g. APS-C. Since a correspondingly smaller section of the full-frame image circle hits the sensor from the lens, the image angle is also smaller (28.3° for full-frame, 19° for APS-C on Nikon). Thus, the image contents of the APS-C image are a central section of the image that a full format camera would display. Aberrations usually occur at the edge, especially with wide-angle lenses, so the quality for APS-C cameras is always maximum.
