Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 Overview

  • 1Description

Characterized by its sleek size, the AF 35mm f/2.8 FE Lens from Samyang is a compact wide-angle prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Its versatile wide angle of view is well-suited to general shooting applications and its slim form factor is ideal for travel and everyday photography. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements and one high refractive index element to suppress spherical aberrations in order to achieve a high degree of sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture range. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to control flare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. The lens's autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras' AF systems for quick and precise focusing performance, and manual focus override is also available for more refined control.

Compact wide-angle prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Maximum f/2.8 aperture helps to achieve the slim, portable form factor while also remaining versatile for use in a variety of lighting conditions.
Two aspherical elements and one high refractive index element help control spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness, resolution, and clarity.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to individual elements in order to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and a neutral color balance.
The integrated autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras' focusing systems for quick, accurate, and precise AF control. Manual focus override is also available for refining your focus position.
Seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Aluminum alloy housing is both lightweight and durable.

    Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 Reviews

    AF 35mm f/2.8 FE Lens for Sony E is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The lens is sharp, but the quality control is questionable. I got this lens to use with a Sony a7Riii. I received the lens and the camera together and I was very excited to exploit the full potential of this combo. However, as soon that I got it, I noticed a strange spot in the front element. Looking close, I realized that the spot is inside the lens. At first, I thought is was some sort of speck. But I took a macro photo of it and it seems that the coating of a inside element of the lens is pealing off. Check it by yoursef in the photo below. I took a couple of pictures with it and the images are sharp indeed, mainly when stoped down to F/4. But I will return this copy and ask for another one. Samyang quality control should have avoided this lens to be in the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a poor man's Zeiss. This Samyang 35mm f/2.8 is a gem. It's light, sharp, and inexpensive. I also own the Sony's 35mm f/2.8 ZA when I first got my a7riii. I did a little research on YouTube and found out that this Samyang is even sharper. I bought this Samyang along with a brand new a7III recently. I tested both Samyang and Sony Zeiss on both a7riii and a7iii. On the a7iii, their image quality is indistinguishable. However, when mounted it on the a7rIII, the Samyang is a titbit sharper than my Sony Zeiss. I'm selling my Sony Zeiss...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the price. This lens is as light as air. It is extremely sharp wide open and gets razor sharp stopped down to f4. Bokeh and color are nice too. When you need a tiny, air weight lens as your only companion for the day, this lens more than satisfies. Fast autofocus with not much sound.? This lens is 1/3 the price of the Sony 35/2.8. It's a fantastic little bargain and I can think of a ton of ways it will come in handy for people, landscape, and vacation images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this lens, but for the price I LOVE IT! First of all this is obviously a budget lens that has in its favor a small form factor. ?AND... it has AF. ?I keep this lens on my camera (A7III) when traveling or when I don't need the 1.8s ?for professional work. People complained about noisy AF... in my experience the AF is silent when using AFC in video and only makes noise when you half press the shutter to force a refocus or in photo mode. ?Thats my experience. ? I have the 28mm f2, the 55 f1.8, and 85 f1.8 batis ?and this lens is great because its small, light, and has good image quality. ?I would give it a 4 in general but then you look at the price point and its a 5. ?Also I think when you keep the lens hood on that it is a handsome little lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome lense. Just got it today, and after playing with it for a bit, I can say that the AF motor is not as loud as I thought. For the price it takes nice sharp pictures great bokeh, and very small, only negative is the motor noise. But bought it knowing that, so it's not a bother. I did give it 4 stars only because I had to exchange it due to the one I got having issues with the lock-on AF-C, it would lock on but any movement, and sometime when not even moving, it would go crazy and start searching for focus and will not find it unless the camera is still. I requested an exchange and hope to get one that works as the ones reviewed online.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samyang 35mm f/2.8 on a Sony a7m3 You already read reviews on how sharp this lens is. What many reviewers don’t discuss is how the lens performs at night. Here are some observations: For objects that are illuminated by nearby lights, such as streetlights or flood lights, the images are sharp. Please see the outdoor Christmas decorations in the attached photo. For sources of light, such as neon lights or Christmas lights, the lens does NOT blow out the light source beyond recognition. Overall, this is a very good lens for night photography. Pluses: - Instead of a lens bag, the lens comes with a round zippered pouch. A nice touch! - lightweight lens, pairs well with a7 cameras, good walk-around lens - sharp, excellent contrast and color Minus: Worst lens hood ever!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic little lens! This really is a great lens for a low price. I needed a fast and portable prime and was so excited to find a 35mm at a good price point for my Sony a7. Dont let the size of this little lens fool you – the AF is fast, it performs fantastically in low light, and travels light. Ill be using it for many adventures to come!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price it cant be beat. Got this baby for $280 its feather light. looks good on the camera is a tiny combo. Very fast and accurate focus. Eye auto focus works great this is my second lens i got for my a7iii i also got the samyang 50 1.4 and its a stellar lens for the price as well. I would definitely buy another samyang lens.

    How severe is it not to have weather resistance? ...

    How severe is it not to have weather resistance? Shoot during the dusk or foggy day effect the lens at all?
    Asked by: Inshik
    Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE Lens for Sony E,B&H # SASYIO35AFE. Weather resistance typically refers to precipitation/moisture, such as rain or snow, or sealing from dust. As the Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE Lens for Sony E is not weather-sealed, while you may use the lens in a light drizzle or light snow, I would not recommend using it in a sustained or moderate/heavy rain/downpour/snow. Using it in a dusty/windy environment would also not be recommended, such as at a rodeo or at the beach on a windy day.

    question

    A regular B&W UV filter-- 49 'm, does not fit. It's there a filter with the threads on the outside ? Or will it even take a filter?
    Asked by: Greg S.
    The lens has an outer ring that can be removed and then a 49mm filter will fit.

    question

    What size UV or Polarizer filter does this take? I purchased 49 mm filters but they are too big. Would a 48 'm work? Maybe I did not try hard enough
    Asked by: Greg S.
    No matter what Staff says, 49mm does not work on this lens and b&h should remove it from the accessories suggestion below this item. The literature says 40.5mm. B&h should send me a replacement.

    Can you register a Samyang lens for warranty ...

    Can you register a Samyang lens for warranty repair in the USA? Or do you need to buy Rokinon to get the USA warranty?
    Asked by: Leif
    This is a good question. However, like you, I am only a customer and have nothing to do with the Samyang organization. It's odd, and perhaps irresponsible, of B&H to forward your question to me. It's their job to find out this information, both for your benefit, and for B&H's so they can answer future inquiries. I wish you good luck with the lens - images are razor sharp.

    question

    Is this the same lens as Rokinon AF 35mm F2.8 FE?
    Asked by: Gunes
    It should be. It looks identical, with the only difference being the logo. Rokinon is a Samyang brand.
