The Samyang lens brand expanded its range of lenses presenting their first macro lens for full frame sensors, more specifically the Samyang 100mm F2.8 ED UMC MACRO for photography and its counterpart version for video, the Samyang 100mm T3.1 VDSLR ED UMC MACRO.
The new Samyang 100mm is built with 15 crystals in 12 groups, including a high refractive (HR) lens and a low dispersion (ED) lens to minimize unnecessary light scattering and provide a high resolution, from the edges to the center of the image. The UMC coating of Samyang Optics is used to optimize the entry of light and minimize flare and ghosting.
The Samyang 100mm F2.8 MACRO ED UMC has a reproduction ratio of 1: 1 and a minimum focusing distance of 0.3m. A very versatile lens, which like most macro lenses, not only can be used for details, but it can also be ideal for portraits or landscapes.
The Samyang 100mm T3.1 ED UMC VDSLR MACRO for video is a lens designed for follow focus systems thanks to the smooth and silent mechanism of their focus and aperture rings. The distance scale and its number T are marked on both sides of the lens, which is a great help when shooting.
The Samyang 100mm Macro Series is available 10 camera frames: Canon EOS, Nikon, Pentax, Sony A, Sony E, Fujifilm X, Canon M, Samsung NX, the Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds models.
These new lenses will be available from late April 2015, at a price of $549 for Samyang 100mm for photography and $599 for the video version.
