Samyang posted this teaser image for a new Sony FE lens. Strange enough Samyang Korea made a mistake and already published the full product page. Here are the images with the official press text:

This lens is small and lightweight to carry anywhere, anytime and has a clear resolution that can capture the beauty of everyday life and people. The angle of view and shooting distance are natural, making it ideal for recording everyday life. Thanks to the large aperture, F1.8 and excellent optical system, the bokeh is beautiful, round, and the background is calm, making the subject stand out more. Experience a quiet and accurate AF system for video shooting and a new Custom Switch for custom modes.

Optimized for portraits and everyday photography, the AF 75mm F1.8 FE is compact, lightweight, yet has great performance and versatility. It’s only 230g, so it’s perfect for taking photos on a variety of topics anytime, anywhere. The optical system is sophisticatedly designed with Samyang’s original optical technology, providing excellent resolution from corner to corner of the image to the surroundings. In particular, the large diameter of F1.8 presents a large and beautiful bokeh, the bokeh is more clean and the background blur is more calm by correcting various aberrations and designing the optimal optical path.
Thanks to the new Stepping Motor (STM), AF performance is quiet and accurate, allowing you to take more natural portraits. Also, here comes the new Custom Switch! You can switch to Aperture Control Mode according to Modes 1 and 2, and you will be able to select more various shooting modes with the upcoming firware updates. Experience Samyang’s next-generation lens in new angle of view.

The AF 75mm F1.8 FE is only 230g in weight and 69mm in height, so it’s easy to carry and fits perfectly with a compact mirrorless camera. Enjoy the clear image quality with the compact telephoto lens that can be used anytime, anywhere.

After switching from range finder to SLR and to mirrorless system, the forgotten 75mm angle of view is now reborn as a full-frame AF lens! Take your everyday life with the legendary angle of view 75mm that captures both the story and the character.

The subject and background are effectively separated, creating an impressive sense of depth when the large round bokeh, calm background blurring, and high contrast achieve the optimal balance. Samyang’s original optical design delivers unique depth of field even in a similar angle of view and aperture. Capture your beautiful everyday life more impressively.

Only by carefully designing and simulating the path of light can you complete a large and beautiful bokeh that cannot be captured by a mobile phone. We hope you will experience the best bokeh that is beautifully designed after many years of research in shape, color, border, and minimized chromatic aberration.

Samyang’s original technology put everything in concise 10 lenses in 7 groups. In order to effectively control chromatic aberration, three extra low-dispersion lenses (ED) with achromat are used, and high-refractive lenses (HR) with excellent refractive index are used to achieve a small size of Ø65 x 69mm. In addition, the UMC coating is applied to minimize unnecessary internal reflections, resulting in high contrast and sharp images.

Now Autofocus needs to consider not only how more accurately and quickly it captures images, but also how quiet and smooth it is. Thanks to the newly researched and developed STM (Stepping Motor), a larger and heavier focus lens group can be controlled more quietly and precisely, providing excellent image quality in photos and videos.

Equipped with the Custom Wwitch, shooting and operation is more intuitive and simple. You can easily select various functions such as Aperture Control Mode from the Switch, and enjoy the shooting mode that suits your personal preference. More functions will be added through firmware update in the future.
