January 8th, 2018, Seoul, South Korea – Global optics brand, Samyang Optics is pleased to unveil its first autofocus lens for Canon full frame DSLR cameras: AF 14mm F2.8EF. This light weight wide angle lens inherits the renowned image quality of Samyang’s wide angle series and delivers a quiet, fast and accurate autofocus system.

World Class Wide Angle Lens, Samyang 14mm

This first EF mount autofocus lens from Samyang encapsulates the brand’s universally respected optical technology, especially in the wide angle lens category. From a total of 15 lenses in 10 groups, 7 special optic lenses have been chosen in the production of this lens, to maximise the image quality.

The use of 2 aspherical lenses, 4 high-refractive lenses, and 1 extra-low dispersion lens minimizes distortion and various aberrations while producing crystal clear resolution. The remarkably even image quality from centre to corner of the wide 116.6 degree angle of view appears distinctly on its MTF chart.

Ideal Autofocus Lens with High Usability

Importantly, the minimised weight and movement of the focusing lens group enables quiet and pleasant autofocusing with high accuracy.

This compact Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 EF weighs only 485g without lens caps and hood and is the best travel partner to capture unforgettable moments on your journey.

Weather-sealing and a built-in AF/MF switch increase usability.
