The 2nd Generation

Meet the AF 85mm F1.4 FE II lens, the second edition of the AF 85mm F1.4 FE that has been loved by many people since Samyang released its first autofocus lens. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of Samyang Optics, Samyang Optics is introducing second-generation AF lenses with upgraded performance. Starting with the first renewal product, the AF 50mm F1.4 FE II, the AF 35mm F1.4 FE II, and this time the AF 85mm F1.4 FE II second-generation lens is newly announced.

1. Smaller size and lighter weight
2. Excellent resolution and creamy bokeh from F1.4 fast lens
3. Quieter, faster and more accurate AF performance with linear STM motor
4. Professional control & upgraded reliability

Unprecedented Resolution in Smaller & Lighter 85mm

The AF 85mm F1.4 FE II is the lightest lens(509g/18.0oz weight) among all the large-aperture 85mm focal length lenses compatible with the Sony FE mount, so it’s even a perfect match to compact Sony mirrorless cameras with a gimbal . Not only superb resolution but also weight is important when shooting portraits. Especially in a handheld shooting environment, the benefit of the lightweight lens is huge, so innovative technology was needed to combine resolution and weight at the same time. The Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 FE II is lighter than other 85mm lenses compatible with a full-frame Sony FE mount, but it expresses the subject with clear image quality.

Outstanding Center Resolution & Color

The 4 HR (High Refractive) and 1 ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass elements of this new AF 85mm F1.4 FE II provide a stunning contrast and resolution, and its center resolution is superior to other comparable expensive telephoto lenses. Samyang’s advanced coating technology not only maintains excellent image sharpness even in poor lighting conditions but also the AF 85mm F1.4 FE II provides a clearer image with an improved Color Contribution Index (CCI).

Extremely Clean & Beautiful Bokeh

F1.4 large-diameter aperture maximizes the extremely narrow depth of field expression. Its smooth blurred background can make subjects stand out in images and natural bokeh provides an artistic view. The AF 85mm F1.4 FE II is the only FE mount lens that does not feature even a single aspherical glass. If an aspherical glass is used to improve its optical performance, there should be onion rings in the bokeh, which is a negative factor in the bokeh evaluation. Since the AF 85mm F1.4 FE II does not feature any aspherical glass in its elements, it has clear and beautiful bokeh!

Faster, Quieter, Precise Auto Focus Performance

Samyang’s Linear Stepping Motor (STM) provides the high-thrust efficiency needed for fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking, thus maximizing the advantages of Sony E-Mount cameras. Compared to the previous AF 85mm F1.4 FE, this new AF 85mm F1.4 FE II is optimized for not only photo shooting but also video shooting by minimizing vibration and noise. Tracking the subject accurately and quickly, the AF also operates quietly and smoothly when shooting video.

Short Minimum Focal Distance 0.85m (2.79ft)

The minimum focal distance is just 85cm (2.79ft), so it produces impressive close-ups, even capturing small details, at very close to the subject. With a short minimum focal distance and large aperture of the AF 85mm F1.4 FE II, you can get close-ups by highlighting the subject with a smoothly expressed background!

Customized Buttons with Various Features

Important features of the AF 85mm F1.4 FE II include Customizable 1) Focus hold button & 2) Custom switch. Overall, this is a lens that meets professional requirements for control and reliability, for both stills and videos.

1) Focus Hold Button
Pressing this button on the lens will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. You can assign functions such as Eye AF in settings on the camera body.

2) Custom Switch
There is a custom switch, which can be set to allow adjustment of the aperture silently, by rotating the focus ring. Using the optional Lens Station, you can set up the mode to suit your own preference*.
• MODE 1 : Operates with focus control function (MF, DMF mode)
• MODE 2 : Operates with aperture control function (AF mode)
*More functions will be added through firmware updates in the future.

Weather-Sealing & Modern Design

The AF 85mm F1.4 FE II has been developed and enhanced, taking into consideration not only the design but also the user’s shooting environment. It features a rubberized micro-patterned focus ring, stylish silver ring, hidden red ring, and matte finish which feels great to operate and the weather-sealing (in 7 areas) protects the lens from light rain, snow, and dust.
