manufacturer description

Samyang 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC is a bright prime lens that has been designed to work with both full-frame and APS-C cameras. The optical construction comprises 9 elements in 7 optical groups, including one aspherical lens. Just like all the other Samyang lenses, this product is also made of the anti-reflective UMC coatings to improve the contrast quality and faithfully reproduce all the colours. The 8-blade aperture brings extremely smooth background blur on the photography.

Samyang 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC with the Nikon F mount has been additionally fitted with an electronic circuit to control the exposure parameters from the camera level and take full advantage of the i-TTL flash system. Thanks to the detailed parameters connected with the range of available apertures, focal length and focus confirmation, shooting with Samyang lens has never been so easy and comfortable.

Samyang 85 mm is an extremely popular portrait photography lens. Thanks to its functional construction and high image parameters, the product is perfect for amateur and professional photography. - Home of the alpha system photographer
