The premium design and performance of 2nd Generation lenses have been applied to the lens, and it also supports the key features of recent Sony mirrorless bodies, including Hybrid AF, Eye AF, Direct Manual Focus (DMF), and the AF assist function.

Description

AF 35-150mm F2-2.8 FE Key Features

Covering everything between 35mm and 150mm

Samyang has moved a step forward with its innovative second-zoom lens to provide a more convenient user experience. The lens is remarkably versatile as an all-in-one lens with fast maximum apertures and provides a solution for photographers seeking to avoid lens changing. It was clearly designed for a portrait photographer, but the wide zoom range is also useful for everyone shooting commercials, events and travel imagery.

Outstanding Resolution, from corner-to-corner

Thanks to the latest optical design of 21 elements in 18 groups and featuring an optimal combination of 2 ASP, 1 HB, 3 HR and 6 ED elements the lens presents superior optical performance throughout the entire zoom range. When combined with Sony’s full-frame image sensor, the AF 35-150mm F2-2.8 FE delivers high image quality to the edges of the frame with plenty of contrast.

Fast and accurate AF performance

The lens’ Linear Stepping Motor (STM) is fast and highly responsive to both photographers and videographers. It delivers excellent focus tracking and smooth transitions, from the Minimum Object Distance (MOD) to infinity. Its fast maximum aperture also helps you control camera movement by allowing a higher shutter speed or reducing noise by choosing a low ISO. The system is compatible with Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF, and Eye AF camera functions as in-camera lens corrections for shading, chromatic aberration, and distortion.

Impressive bokeh with a bright F2-F2.8 aperture

The large aperture of the AF 35-150mm F2-2.8 FE presents an attractive background blur to the image's out-of-focus areas. It effectively separates the subject from the background, using a shallow depth of field to capture a unique image in which the background is compressed. The lens employs 9 diaphragm blades, creating a smooth and attractive bokeh.

Premium design and usability.

Since introducing the 2nd Generation lenses, Samyang has introduced the 'Hidden red ring' design that has become part of the brand’s design identity. The new design improves the look and usability of the lens, reflecting customer feedback, with enhanced tactile controls for focusing and precise focal length adjustment. A lock switch on the body helps users keep the lens set at its shortest 35mm position and is useful for protection during travel.

Enhanced Functionality with custom switch & button

The two round buttons made of soft rubber have a focus save function which can store 2 points of focus. In addition, three custom mode switches on the lens can be pre-programmed via the optional Lens Station, allowing you to set up the mode to suit your preference.

Optimized features for video shooting

1) Dolly Zoom Shot: The Dolly Zoom is a powerful in-camera cinematic technique. A professional dolly can be expensive and challenging to operate, but this lens allows you easily take the dolly shot.

2) Cinematic Video AF: When shooting video, the AF speed is more carefully adjusted than photo shooting, resulting in lower wobbling and highly stable movie shooting.

3) Linear MF Focus Control: Provides convenience to video shooters by matching the torque of the focus ring as closely as possible to that of a manual focus lens when shooting video in manual mode.

4) Digital Par-Focal: Digital Par-focal is specialized for video shooting as it can maintain focus on the subject when zooming in or out. Since this function is usually mounted in expensive cine zoom lenses, it provides a more special experience and results to customers who use this zoom lens.

Weather-sealed design

Considering the users’ shooting environment, the lens is designed to be completely weather sealed at the mount and throughout the body. Weather sealing is adopted in 11 areas to prevent damage or contamination from dust, light rain, and snow.

Short Minimum Focal Distance 0.33m (1.08ft)

The AF 35-150mm F2-2.8 delivers superior close-up shooting performance for an all-rounder zoom. At the 35mm wide-angle end, the MOD (Minimum Object Distance) is 0.33mm. Combined with the lens's fast apertures, it produces a unique perspective close to the subject while presenting a beautifully blurred background. Users can also take dynamic close-up shots at the 150mm telephoto end with a MOD of 0.85m. It makes taking portraits with exaggerated features easier, food on tables, etc.

One lens for every scene

Samyang has moved a step forward with its second zoom lens to provide a more convenient user experience. The lens is remarkably versatile as an all-rounder with a fast maximum aperture and provides solutions for photographers seeking to avoid changing lenses. Whilst primarily designed for portrait photographers, the wide zoom range is also useful for everyone shooting commercials, events and travel imagery.

Outstanding Resolution, from corner-to-corner

With the latest optical design using special lenses for 12 out of the 21 total elements(in 18 groups), this lens demonstrates excellent optical performance throughout the zoom ranges from wide-angle to telephoto. When combined with Sony’s full-frame image sensor, the lens delivers superior sharp images from edge to edge. In addition, 'UMC' (Ultra Multi-Coating) technology is applied to minimize flare and ghosting, helping to produce natural and clear images.

Impressive bokeh with a bright F2-F2.8 aperture

A large aperture starting from F2 presents an attractive background blur to the image's out-of-focus areas. The lens effectively separates the subject from the background, using a shallow depth of field to capture a unique image in which the background is compressed. The clear and natural bokeh created by the 9 diaphragm blades makes it possible to capture beautiful night-time cityscapes.

Fast and accurate AF performance and Short M.O.D

The Linear Stepping Motor, which provides high responsiveness and accuracy when shooting photos and videos, is excellent for tracking fast-moving subjects. The lens also offers excellent close-up performance for an all-rounder zoom. With a MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 0.33m at 35mm and 0.85m at 150mm, you can easily get close-ups with sharp details. Combined with the fast aperture of the lens, the background is beautifully blurred when close to the subject, making the lens even more versatile.

Optimized features for video shooting

Enhanced Functionality with the custom switch & button

Custom switches and buttons allow the user to control the lens completely.

How to use the focus hold button

When you press and hold down the "focus hold button" for 3 seconds, the screen blinks and informs you of the saving status. The function allows the users to save focus at any desired position and naturally change focus between two subjects. When you press the button briefly after saving, the focus moves to a saved position.

Zoom Lock Switch

A zoom lock switch helps users keep the lens set at its shortest 35mm position, making it more convenient and safe to carry.

Easily become a professional videographer

Dolly Shot
The MODE 3 in MF position, you can easily take "Dolly Shot", a special effect you see in movies.

A professional dolly can be expensive and challenging to operate because you have to operate the focus ring and zoom ring simultaneously while changing the distance to the subject. In "Dolly Shot Mode", the focus ring and zoom ring are linked in the system so that users take dolly shot simply to operate the zoom ring.

Digital Par-Focal
After focusing on the subject in MF mode, the focus doesn’t require adjusting again, even when zoomed in or out. This allows filmmakers to reduce shooting time and allow accurate and stable shooting.

What is Dolly Shot? How to shoot easily

What is Dolly shot?

A dolly shot, also referred to as a tracking shot or trucking shot, is a camera movement technique used by cinematographers to track and follow a subject in motion. To achieve this, the camera is mounted on a device called a "dolly," which facilitates smooth tracking movement. The dolly can move in front of, behind, or alongside the subject, which can be a person, a location, a product, or any other object of focus in the frame. Through this, you can control the emotional distance between the subject and the viewer by highlighting the audiovisual and dramatic effects.

How to take a Dolly Shot simply by handheld

Tip. If the moving distance is long, the camera may shake, so please shoot at a focal length between 35 and 100mm.

  1. Stand at a distance of about 1.5 to 2 meters away from the subject.
  2. Set the custom switch to MF and Mode 3 and adjust the focal length to about 100mm.
  3. After focusing on the subject, set the aperture to F8~16.
  4. Slowly turn the zoom ring to the left (towards the wide-angle end) while using your upper body and arms to move the camera toward your subject.
  5. Dolly Shot complete

    ※ When shooting from a farther distance from the subject, use a cart or gimbal for more stable shooting.

Premium and solid design

Carry your lens around anywhere

The 'Hidden Red Ring', which upgraded Samyang's premium design to the next level, makes the lens even more attractive. In addition, by applying a metal barrel, the build quality was improved and the lens was made more robust. Considering the users’ shooting environment, the lens is designed to be weather sealed at the mount and throughout the body. Weather sealing is adopted to prevent damage or contamination from dust, light rain, and snow.
