Samyang has a new sharp and utterly manual control 50mm f1.4 AS UMC lens made for full frame cameras. With a wide open f1.4 aperture users will be able to shoot more comfortably in low light situations without having to bump up their ISO or long shutter speeds. Add in the eight aperture blades and the lens should produce nice and smooth bokeh as well.

The lens features 9 elements in 6 groups, which includes one aspherical element plus another Hybrid aspherical element. The lens also has a minimum focus distance of 45cm.

The lens will be available for a variety of lens mounts including Canon EF, Canon M, Nikon, Sony Alpha, Sony E, Pentax K, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Micro Four Thirds, Four Thirds. Samyang has yet to announce a price or pre-order date for the lens but you can check out more images of the lens and sample image after the break.
