Samyang has just announced the new and improved version of its well-known 85mm f/1.4 AF lens. While the previous one exists in Nikon F, Canon EF and RF, and slightly modified in Sony FE, the new Mk II version of the lens is only available for Sony FE. It’s smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the AF has been improved, and there are some other tweaks that might make you love this lens more than its older brother.
Rokinon/Samyang has today announced their new AF 85mm f/1.4 RF lens for the Canon RF mount. While it appears to simply be a new mount version of their existing AF 85mm f/1.4 for Sony, it presents something of a bargain when it comes to fast portrait glass for Canon’s EOS R mirrorless cameras. The price isn’t quite as good as some might hope, though.
