Reviews:

Full review at ePhotozine:

We seem to have gone full circle and classic prime lenses, once the only choice, are seemingly being rediscovered and once again becoming highly sought after. Compact, high quality and reasonable priced it is not difficult to see why. The optical designs have in some cases benefited from modern technologies and glasses and they can comfortably surpass the performance of their predecessors.

This is where we find the Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 lens – superb performance, compact size, excellent price and a compelling focal length to use. There’s nothing to dislike, everything to like and an obvious Editor’s Choice.

Full leaked press text of the new Samyang 24mm f/2.8 FE lens

UPDATE: A source (thanks!) sent me additional images which I embedded into this post

The lens will be officially announced tomorrow (June 11th). Here is the leaked press text:

Samyang AF 24MM 2,8 SONY E

Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 FE is designed specifically for Sony’s mirrorless system cameras and is compatible with full-frame sensors. But it can also be used with models of the A6xxx series that are equipped with the smaller APS-C sensor.

 

Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 FE is a perfect wide-angle lens for Sony photographers who want to keep their photo equipment as small and lightweight as possible without sacrificing functionality or optical quality.

The lens weighs only 93 grams and can be used for a vast range of subjects, from landscape, travel and architecture to street photography, group shots, and even sports!

Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 FE is designed specifically for Sony’s mirrorless system cameras and is compatible with full-frame sensors. But it can also be used with models of the A6xxx series that are equipped with the smaller APS-C sensor.

The lens has fast, silent and accurate autofocus, and thanks to a minimum focus of only 24 cm, it’s possible to get close to the subject and at the same include a part of the surrounding environment in the picture. A great feature when you want to capture cool detail photos on your holiday trip!

Despite its small and lightweight format, Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 FE contains 7 lens elements, divided into 7 groups. To minimize optical aberrations and ensure maximum sharpness all the way to the edges, the construction includes three aspherical lens elements and two made of HR (High Refractive) glass.

Samyang’s advanced Ultra Multi Coating ensures that the images show high contrast and brilliance as well as neutral color reproduction even in difficult lighting conditions.

Summary of important features

  • 24 mm wide angle with Sony FE / E mount
  • Full-frame compatible (can also be used with APS-C)
  • Compact and super light – only 93 grams!
  • Fast and silent autofocus
  • High quality optical construction with aspherical elements and HR glass
  • Short minimum focus, 24 cm
