A Versatile All-In-One Zoom
Meet Samyang's first ‘All-In-One’ zoom lens, the AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE, celebrating the 50th year since its foundation! The AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE has several features optimized for video shooting to effectively capture the trend change of users who need the flexibility of not only photography but also video shooting. In addition to a zoom lens that reflects consumer needs for video shooting and video-specialized functions, Samyang exclusive accessories allow users to further enjoy functions available on existing professional Cine lenses with this new Samyang zoom lens.
Why the Samyang AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE is the 'All-In-One' zoom lens?
Optimized Features for Video Shooting
The AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE lens is optimized for video shooting. You can get the video continuously maintaining focus on the subject when zooming in and out on MF mode. As the AF speed is carefully controlled during video recording, focus wobble is reduced, so very stable video recording is possible. Linear MF changes linearly in response to focus ring rotation, giving the user the control immediacy needed for fast, accurate manual focusing. And also the aperture ring moves smoothly and quietly, providing seamless, silent control for moviemaking.
Customized Cine Kit for More Professional Video Shooting
A Samyang Cine Kit, consisting of focus gearing, follow focus, and tripod mount, enables you to shoot professional video. With this Cine Kit, you can easily exchange the shooting system such as the lens or the follow focus, so it saves your time changing systems for shooting. This kit is designed, considering the user's shooting environment, so manoeuvrability is very good. For instance, an additional accessory is usually needed to utilize the rod, but a huge accessory like a cage is unnecessary when you have a Samyang Cine Kit. Enjoy the essential elements of video shooting at once with the Samyang Cine Kit! * The Samyang Cine Kit is available separately.
A Versatile, Bright Standard Zoom Lens, Excellent Resolution in All Areas of the Image
This zoom lens delivers a 24-70mm (wide-angle to short-telephoto) angle of view and a bright maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout the entire zoom range, as commonly utilized by full-frame camera users, so it can be used for diverse photos such as landscapes, portraits, and snaps. In particular, the optimum resolution is achieved through the optical design of 17 elements in 14 groups (2 ASP, 1 H-ASP, 3 HR, and 3 ED). Take high-quality images with superior resolution in all areas of the image!
Impressive Background Blur and Bokeh with Bright F2.8 Aperture
Bright aperture of the AF 24-70 F2.8 FE offers beautifully blurred background. The subject and background are effectively separated with shallow depth of field, creating impressive images highlighting the subject. The 9-blade circular aperture contributes natural-looking bokeh and the beautiful starburst effect.
Short Minimum Focusing Distance
The minimum focusing distance is just 0.35m (1.15ft), so it is possible to produce a unique perspective close to the subject. It makes it easier to take various images such as food on tables or portraits with exaggerated features.
Advanced Fast and Quiet AF for Stills and Movies
Now Autofocus needs to consider not only how more accurately and quickly it captures images, but also how quiet and smooth it is. The AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE features the latest STM(Stepping Motor), a larger and heavier focus lens group can be controlled more quietly and precisely, providing excellent image quality in both photos and videos.
Enhanced Usability Considering the Shooting Environment, Weather Sealing for Protection from External Influences
The AF 24-70 F2.8 FE enhanced the usability considering the user's shooting environment. This Samyang's first zoom lens features weather sealing for 7 spots to protect from light dust, rain, and snow and provide the ability to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions.
Custom Switch to Set Multiple Functions
Equipped with the Custom Switch, shooting and operation are more intuitive and simple. You can easily select various functions such as Aperture Control Mode or MF Mode from the Switch, and enjoy the shooting mode that suits your personal preference.
*More functions will be added through the firmware update in the future.
