Samyang has introduced a new, ultra wide-angle lens – the company’s first-ever autofocus lens for Nikon DSLR full-frame cameras.

Inside the AF 14mm f/2.8 lens there are 15 elements in 10 groups, including 2 aspherical elements, 4 high refractive (HR) elements and 1 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element to minimise distortion and chromatic aberrations. The lens also offers a 116.6-degree wide angle-of-view and features 7 rounded aperture blades, which help to create beautiful bokeh (out-of-focus backgrounds).

The autofocus function in the AF 14mm f/2.8 F has been upgraded with Samyang’s advanced technology and it also offers faster, more accurate and quieter autofocus performance than previous AF 14mm f/2.8 lenses.

Other features include its weather-sealing, built-in AF/MF switch for increased usability and a minimum focus distance of 20cm.

The Samyang AF 14mm f/2.8 lens for Nikon full-frame DSLR cameras will be available from September with an SRP of £649.99.
