Brighten Up Your Images with the New High-Speed Samyang 35mm F/1.2 Lens for Mirrorless Cameras

The new Samyang 35mm f/1.2 AS UMC CS is a relatively affordable high-speed lens designed for use with Sony E, MFT, Fujifilm X and Canon M mirrorless cameras. It’s scheduled to ship in September for around $500, and offers great versatility for low-light photography.

The manual focus lens features Samyang’s Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) and is constructed with nine elements in seven groups, including two aspherical elements to minimize aberration while optimizing sharpness, contrast and color rendition. As expected from the fast f/1.2 maximum aperture, the lens utilizes somewhat large 62mm filters.

The Samyang 35mm f/1.2 AS UMC CS focuses as close as 14.88 inches. Relatively lightweight and compact, the weighs between 14.8 and 15.2 ounces depending upon mount, and measures between 2.8 and 2.9 inches in length. With the crop factor of mirrorless cameras, this fast 35mm f/1.2 will approximate a normal lens and should serve you well for everything from street scenes to landscapes. It comes with a custom, removable hood.
