Third-party lens manufacturer Samyang recently announced its latest 24mm F1.4 prime lens for Nikon, Canon, Four Thirds, Pentax K, Sony Alpha and Samsung NX mounts.
Constructed with 13 optical elements in 12 groups, this lens is equipped with low dispersion and aspherical glass as well as multi-layered lens coatings to help reduce color fringing and flare in images. Its fast F1.4 aperture will also enable users to shoot in lowlight conditions, and conceal background distractions when used wide open.
What's interesting about the lens is the different focal lengths it gives on various sensors. For example, on Four Thirds cameras sporting a 2x crop factor, the 24mm gives a normal (48mm equivalent field of view which is suitable for portraits. Whereas on a full-frame sensor, the 24mm becomes a true wide-angle lens which is great for landscapes or street photography. However, do note that the Samyang 24mm F1.4 has no autofocus capabilities and will require manual focusing.
The company says that the lens will be available for sale at the end of the year or early 2012. Pricing in Asia has yet to be confirmed.
