Samyang / Rokinon has announced the 35mm F1.2 ED AS UMC CS and 35mm T1.3 ED AS UMC CS, two standard angle manual focus lenses for mirrorless cameras with an APS-C sensor size compatible with four camera mounts: Sony E, MFT, Fujifilm X and Canon M.
The lenses aim to deliver high resolution from corner to corner. Ultra Multi Coating and two aspherical lenses have been included among nine elements in seven groups to minimise aberrations and unnecessary light dispersion.
While the 35mm f/1.2 is a photography lens, the 35mm T1.3 cine lens has been designed for a professional follow focus system, thanks to the quiet and smooth de-clicked focus and aperture gear rings. The distance scale and T numbers are also marked on both sides of the lens for convenience when filming.
Both lenses will be globally available in September 2016 at the suggested retail price of €449 for the 35mm f/1.2 and €499 for the 35mm T1.3. For more information, you can read the full press release here.
