Just in! Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 EF

Introducing Samyang's first autofocus lens for Canon full frame DSLR cameras: AF 14mm F2.8 EF. This light weight wide angle lens inherits the renowned image quality of Samyang’s wide angle series.

News Image

This first EF mount autofocus lens from Samyang encapsulates the brand's universally respected optical technology, especially in the wide angle lens category.

The remarkably even image quality from centre to corner of the wide 116.6° angle of view appears distinctly on its MTF chart. Importantly, the minimised weight and movement of the focusing lens group enables quiet, fast and pleasant autofocusing with high accuracy. Weather-sealing and a built-in AF/MF switch increase usability.
