1. Introduction

The Samyang AF 35 mm f/2.8 FE, presented in June 2017, was the third Sony FE lens equipped with an autofocus mechanism. The first, the Samyang AF 50 mm f/1.4 FE, we’ve already tested and the Samyang AF 14 mm f/2.8 FE was the second; in October 2017 a fourth model was lauched, the Samyang AF 35 mm f/1.4 FE. The following chart presents a comparison between basic parameters of these lenses.

The Samyang AF 35 mm f/2.8 FE is physically the lightest and the smallest device in the group, fitting the idea of a handy mirrorless system very well. It is, overall, a very interesting option, noticeably cheaper than the system lens we’ve already tested, the Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 35 mm f/2.8 ZA. That’s why it was very interesting to check the possibilities of the Samyang and the results are presented in the following chapters.

We would like to thank the Fototechnika company, the sole distributor for Samyang devices in Poland, for lending us one specimen of the lens which we used in our test.
