Review of the new Samyang AF 24mm F2.8 FE lens for Sony mirrorless cameras. The Rokinon AF 24mm F2.8 lens was made for Sony full frame mirrorless cameras. It was built with three main features in mind, optical quality, portability, and near silent auto focus for video.
The Samyang AF 24mm F2.8 (also know as the Rokinon AF 24mm f/2.8 in the USA) lens is made up of 7 elements in 7 groups that has been designed to deliver high resolution from the center to the corners of the image. There are 3 Aspherical and 2 High Refractive Index elements with Rokinon’s Ultra Multi-Coating. This is utilized to minimize chromatic aberrations and unnecessary light dispersion. The Auto focusing is quiet, quick and accurate. It also has a manual focus override that allows for more control when needed.
The lens is only about 3.3 oz and its small size makes it great for travel and had to spot when street shooting. The AF 24mm has a minimum focusing distance of 9.5” and an internal focusing layout that keeps the front of the lens from rotating for easy use of filters.
Thanks to Tuber “The Hybrid Shooter” William Svrček for the great review video.
