Samyang has announced a new AF 18mm f/2.8 lens, price tag £349.99, for Sony FE-mount cameras.

The new Samyang AF 18mm f/2.8 FE is comprised of 9 elements in 8 groups and incorporates three aspherical, two high refractive and three low dispersion elements to help reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion.

The compact lens weighs just 145g, making it the lightest and smallest 18mm super-wide-angle AF lens on the market, according to Samyang.

It offers a full-frame 100-degree angle of view and uses a Linear STM motor for silent focusing.

The new Samyang AF 18mm f/2.8 FE joins Samyang’s ‘Tiny Series’, which also includes the AF 35mm f/2.8 FE, AF 24mm f/2.8 FE and AF 45mm f/1.8 FE.

The Samyang AF 18mm f/2.8 will be released in September 2019.
