Complementing the lens itself, the Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 EF Lens with Lens Station Kit for Canon EF from B&H bundles the portrait-length prime with the Lens Station for updating lens firmware and adjusting settings.
Mixing a flattering focal length with a fast design, the Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 EF is a Canon EF-mount lens well-suited for portraiture. Its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture enables extensive control over depth of field for using selective focus, and it also excels in low-light conditions. The optical design features a hybrid aspherical element, which controls distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture range. Individual elements also sport an Ultra Multi-Coating to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast in various lighting conditions. Benefitting the optics, the lens also features an Ultrasonic Dual Linear autofocus motor for quick and accurate focusing performance. Additionally, the rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps to achieve a pleasing bokeh quality.

Used in conjunction with Samyang's Lens Manager software for Mac and Windows, this console connects to Canon EF lenses at the bayonet mount and permits customization over focus and aperture parameters, calibration, and lens's firmware can also be updated.
