The Samyang 85mm lens has an incredibly useful focal length. It combines a convenient shooting distance with a flattering perspective, making it perfect for headshots. With the high-resolution resolving ability, this means you can capture ultra-sharp stunning portraits.
The light gathering of the f/1.2 Samyang lens is outstanding, allowing you to shoot in dim light without a flash or needing to boost the ISO of your camera. This avoids nasty grain and allows you to capture images with much faster shutter speeds. A wide aperture also creates the exaggerated shallow depth of field look commonly used by professional photographers and filmmakers.
The 85mm f/1.2 has an advanced optical construction comprising of 10 elements arranged in 7 groups that include an aspherical element and 2 HRI (High Refractive Index) elements. These special elements minimise spherical distortion and control chromatic aberrations ensuring that image sharpness and resolution is maintained in any light condition.
A 9-bladed circular diaphragm creates a rich bokeh that is extremely smooth and appealing. When taking low light images, out of focus light sources are rendered as beautiful orbs of light, helping you create stunning eye-catching shots.
The individual elements use Samyang’s proprietary ultra-multi coating to reduce flare and ghosting, while improving contrast and colour neutrality in strong light. Perfect for backlit portraits or sunset landscapes when you want to capture a dramatic light source without compromising on image quality.
Cased in an aluminium housing the Samyang lens provides solid durability with its robust construction. A wide rubberised grip on the focus ring helps you fine-tune your composition with precision while improving handling comfort.
