Samyang 24 mm F1.4 ED AS UMC is a manual focus prime lens. The manual focus ring is wide, easily accessible and perfectly adapted to most photographic applications, except applications such as sports or where Autofocus lenses would be better considered.
For film and video applications manual focus is often the preferred choice, allowing changing focusing during filming and here are increasing numbers of users using DSLRs for filming and High Definition (HD) video.
This Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC Lens has a standard coupled (clicked) aperture, adjustable in 1 stop (1 EV) intervals. Accurate focus at very close distance or focus critical situations can be achieved through use of focusing in live view mode.
The Samyang 24mm provides lovely bokeh (the character of out-of-focus areas), due to its 8 circular blade aperture design and fast aperture. Optical construction features 13 lenses arranged in 12 groups, 4 lenses are low-dispersion glass (ED), plus two aspheric elements. The 24 mm features Ultra Multi Coated (UMC) multi-coated lenses for the best possible light transmission, and resistance to ghosting and flares.
The Samyang 24mm F1.4 ED AS UMC lens offers a professional wide angle prime lens with excellent optics, yet still manages to deliver significant value for money.
