Yongnuo has announced the new Yongnuo YN 16mm f/1.8S DA DSM lens. This autofocus lens is available in both Nikon Z and Sony E mounts. The lens popped up on the Yongnuo website to absolutely no fanfare whatsoever, but it’s also available to pre-order in the USA for $288. It has a very minimal layout with just a single ring for focus, an AF/MF switch, a custom function button and a USB-C socket.
It features a quiet DSM stepper motor, which Yongnuo says offers “quick start-stop response, high focusing accuracy, smooth autofocus” that’s quiet enough to use for video. The Yongnuo website only lists the lens as being available for Sony E mount, although B&H lists it as being available for both Nikon Z and Sony E. There’s no dropdown list on the pre-order page, so I think it’s probably just Sony E for now. Amazon agrees.
