The Samyang (Rokinon in the US) AF 35mm F1.8 FE is a standard prime lens for full-frame Sony E-mount bodies. This compact lens is just 65mm x 64mm (2.6″ x 2.5″) in size and weighs 120g (8.4oz). It has two aspherical and two HRI elements, as well as an Ultra Multi-Coating, to reduce flare and ghosting. The lens has a 9-blade circular aperture and uses a linear STM motor to drive the focus group. The minimum focus distance is 29cm (11.4″) and the max magnification is 0.17x.
The lens is weather-sealed, and has a mode switch that currently moves between manual focus and aperture control. Additional functions will be added later via a firmware update.
