Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Overview

The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical IF Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras is a compact telephoto prime lens that is compatible with both full frame and APS-C formats and provides a focal length equivalence of 127.5mm when used on Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless digital cameras. The fast, bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is effective in low light situations and provides shallow depth of field control.

This manual focus and manual exposure lens features an internal focusing mechanism that maintains the overall lens length during focusing and does not rotate the front of the lens, making it well-suited for use with polarizers or graduated neutral density filters.

One aspherical element is incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and produce imagery with a degree of sharpness and clarity. A UMC multi-coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich images.

question

I have a Nikon D7100 that has a motor built in. Can it autofocus this lens even though it is a manual focus lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
No it cannot. The D7100 requires that the lenses be designed to be focused automatically (aka Autofocus lenses). A lens such as this which is designated as a manual focus only lens cannot be autofocused even if the camera has an autofocus engine in it. That is one of the reasons this lens is as affordable as it is.

question

Hi, I just ordered this lens upon seeing it but I can't find info about this anywhere other than B&H photo, not even on the Samyang site. Just wanted to make sure this is an actual product that will ship in 7-14 days like your website says. :)Thank you, Ali
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 is a manual aperture/manual focus lens, designed to fit on the X-mount Fuji cameras. It is estimated to ship in 7-14 days, and you will receive a shipping confirmation and tracking number once it does.

question

Is the focusing machine action on this lens silent for use in video capture? (when using auto-focus)
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, this lens is manual focus only, which would be very ideal for shooting video since it does not produce any sound.
