Samyang has just announced a pair of manual focus lenses for Nikon Z cameras. They are a wide-angle 14mm f/2.8 and an 85mm f/1.4, just like the recently announced lenses for Canon RF.

Samyang MF 14mm F2.8 Z

The Samyang 14mm f/2.8 Z is aimed at landscape, architecture and interior photographers. It covers 115.7˚ angle of view and it’s constructed out of 14 elements in 10 groups. There’s no info on the price yet, but the Nikon F version is $299, so the Z version will probably be equally affordable.

Take a look at the full specs:

Model Name MF 14mm F2.8 Z
Aperture Range F2.8 ~ 22
Lens optical Construction 14 Elements in 10 Groups
Special lens ASP 1, H-ASP 1, ED 2, HR 3

Diaphragm Blades 6
Maximum Diameter 87.0mm
Mount Nikon Z
Angle of view – Full Frame 115.7˚

Samyang MF 85mm F1.4

The 85mm f/1.4 Z is weather-sealed and constructed of 9 elements in 7 groups. Samyang promises that various aberrations are minimal, while the lens provides with high image quality and contrast edge to edge.

We don’t know the exact price yet, but considering that the Nikon F version is $269, I don’t think it will be much higher than that.

Here are the full specs:

Model Name MF 85mm F1.4 Z

Special lens H-ASP 1
