Samyang 24-70mm F/2.8 AF Sony FE
The Samyang 24-70mm F/2.8 AF Sony FE is a versatile and universal zoom lens. The lens is suitable for taking photos and videos. For video recording, several functions have been optimized and added to this lens.
The zoom lens has a focal range of 24-70 mm (wide angle to short telephoto). The lens has a wide open aperture of F/2.8 over the entire zoom range. This creates an even background sharpness. This effectively separates the subject from the background. It is possible to capture a unique wide-angle image with a blurred background. The aperture is made up of 9 blades, giving you a soft and natural-looking bokeh. Combined with Sony’s full-frame image sensor, this zoom lens delivers superior sharpness and contrast right into the corners of the image.
There are several video functions: par-focal, cinematic video AF and linear MF focus control. With par-focal, you keep the focus on the subject while zooming in and out. This function is optimized for video recording and is usually only available with professional cine zoom lenses. By carefully controlling the AF speed during video shooting, the ‘shakiness’ of the focus is reduced. Cinematic video AF makes very stable-looking video recordings possible. Linear MF Focus Control offers videographers convenience by matching the torque/resistance of the focus ring as closely as possible to that of a manual focus lens. Ideal for shooting video without autofocus. The AF system tracks the subject accurately and quickly. This is silent, which gives a great advantage when making video images.
The custom switch on the lens can be set so that you can change the aperture by turning the focus ring in the AF mode. Furthermore, the lens is equipped with a rubber focus ring with micro-patterns for a good grip. The lens is well protected by a versatile seal. This protects it from light rain, snow and dust.
The lens is versatile thanks to the minimum focusing distance of only 35 centimeters. This makes it possible to achieve a powerful perspective close to the subject. Take portraits with exaggerated features, a dish on a table with the background or interior shots in small spaces. Taking a close-up with aperture F/2.8 can create an amazing background blur.
