Samyang Announces AF 35-150mm F2-2.8 FE Lens
Samyang, a South Korean optics manufacturer, recently announced their AF 35-150mm F2-2.8 FE lens. This is a full-frame telephoto zoom lens, designed specifically for Sony E-mount cameras. It offers a 35mm full-frame equivalent of 55-240mm and a fast F2-F2.8 constant aperture across its zoom range.
It builds on the success of Samyang’s existing optics line-up. It follows Samyang’s introduction of the AF 14mm F2.4 FE and AF 85mm F1.4 FE lenses in 2017. This new lens further broadens Samyang’s optics offerings, providing photographers with more options for versatile and budget-friendly optics.
This new lens delivers professional-grade optics in a lightweight and budget-friendly package. It weighs just 628 g (1.4 lbs.), making it one of the lightest full-frame telephoto zoom lenses on the market. It features nine rounded diaphragm blades, providing beautiful, rounded bokeh. Additionally, it has fast and accurate autofocus, due to a dual linear motor.
Moreover, the lens is dust and moisture-resistant for longevity. It is constructed with metal and built with rubber seals for protection against weather and dust, ensuring that it will last a long time. A six-year warranty is also available for the lens, providing piece of mind for photographers.
The AF 35-150mm F2-2.8 FE is currently available for pre-order. It has an MSRP of $749 and will start shipping in April. It is currently available for pre-order through authorized Samyang retailers.
