  • De-Click Function for Video Filming
  • Smooth Bokeh for Portraits
  • Expressive Image Quality
  • Weather Sealing and Updated Design

Manual lens for the highest demands.
The Samyang MF 85mm F1.4 MK2 is a further development of the popular Samyang MF 85mm F1.4 lens. The second generation of this lens brings some innovations.

De-click function.
With the de-click function, you can remove the click stops of the aperture steps. Simply turn the silver ring of the lens to "click" or "free" as you need it.

A new bezel, new design and weather protection.
The new panel has 9 rounded slats instead of 6. This makes it easier to create round highlights in the Bokeh. Sun stars receive 18 rays.

The controls are easy to grip and dirt-repellent thanks to their shape. Now, this lens also has weather protection on the bayonet that protects the interior from moisture and raindrops.

The lens is only about 587 g in weight and has a length of only approx. 10 cm much lighter and more compact than many other 85 mm lenses.

Unique perspectives, crisp images
With its viewing angle of 14.4° on MFT, this lens primarily enables beautiful portage names. It is also suitable for travel and nature photography. The soft Bokeh and the extremely good light intensity of F1.4 allow unique shots. The optical system consists of 7 groups with 9 elements and is optimised with UMC multi-layer coating. The aspherical hybrid lens minimises image errors. The lens provides excellent resolution from the centre to the edge.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
