South Korean lens maker Samyang has today confirmed the June launch of new 14mm and 50mm AF lenses for Sony E-mount cameras.

Designed for full-frame E-mount cameras, the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and 50mm f/1.4 feature a 67mm filter diameter.

They are compatible with both phase and contrast-detection sensors, according to Samyang’s UK distributor Intro 2020 which said in a statement: ‘These new products will be the first autofocus lenses in over 40 years of Samyang’s class-leading core optics technologies.

‘Samyang has captured the essence of world leading image technology with their manual focus lenses, and reinterpreted it into autofocus lenses.’

The firm claimed: ‘Based on Samyang’s Optics’ exceptional optical technology, aspherical lenses have been included in both lenses to minimise aberration and unnecessary light dispersion – delivering high resolution from the centre to the corners of the image.’

The Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and 50mm f/1.4 are first due to be displayed at the Photo & Imaging 2016 Show which opens in Seoul on 4 May.
