Another autofocus lens in the compact Pancake format ("Tiny but Wide") announces Samyang for the Sony E-Mount connection. The AF 24mm F2.8 FE weighs only 93 g and measures only 3.8 cm in length. The full-frame focal length of 24mm is extended on an APS-C camera to approx. 36mm (Kb-equivalent / crop factor approx. 1.5).
The close-up limit is 0.24 m. The optical construction consists of 7 elements in 7 groups, including three aspherical lenses and two high refractive lenses. The design and ultra-multi-coating (UMC) are designed to minimize imaging errors, distortion and chromatic aberrations.
The Samyang AF 24mm F2.8 FE will cost 299 Euro and will be available from July 2018.
