The AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE has several features optimized for video shooting to effectively capture the trend of users who need the flexibility of not only photography but also video shooting.
In addition to a zoom lens that reflects consumer needs for video shooting and video-specialized functions, Samyang exclusive accessories allow users to further enjoy functions available on existing professional Cine lenses with this new Samyang zoom lens.
As the AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE provides the 'Par-focal' function in manual focus video shooting mode, allows the user to zoom in on a subject and zoom back out while maintaining the same focus. Now the users are able to shoot cinematic-look videos more conveniently. Well-controlled AF movement speed in AF video shooting mode reduced its wobbling and noise, which maximizes the convenience of the lens usability.
*Par-Focal function is electronically controlled in MF Video shooting mode.
A Samyang Cine Kit, consisting of focus gearing, follow focus, and tripod mount, enables you to shoot professional video. With this Cine Kit, you can easily exchange the shooting system such as the lens or the follow focus, so it saves your time changing systems for shooting. This kit is designed, considering the user's shooting environment, so manoeuvrability is very good. For instance, an additional accessory is usually needed to utilize the rod, but a huge accessory like a cage is unnecessary when you have a Samyang Cine Kit. Enjoy the essential elements of video shooting at once with the Samyang Cine Kit!
* The Samyang Cine Kit is available separately.
This zoom lens delivers a 24-70mm (wide-angle to short-telephoto) angle of view and a bright maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout the entire zoom range, as commonly utilized by full-frame camera users, so it can be used for diverse photos such as landscapes, portraits, and snaps. In particular, the optimum resolution is achieved through the optical design of 17 elements in 14 groups (2 ASP, 1 H-ASP, 3 HR, and 3 ED).
Take high-quality images with superior resolution in all areas of the image!
Bright aperture of the AF 24-70 F2.8 FE offers beautifully blurred background. The subject and background are effectively separated with shallow depth of field, creating impressive images highlighting the subject. The 9-blade circular aperture contributes natural-looking bokeh and the beautiful starburst effect.
The minimum focusing distance is just 0.35m (1.15ft), so it is possible to produce a unique perspective close to the subject. It makes it easier to take various images such as food on tables or portraits with exagger- ated features.
Now Autofocus needs to consider not only how more accurately and quickly it captures images, but also how quiet and smooth it is. The AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE features the latest STM(Stepping Motor), a larger and heavier focus lens group can be controlled more quietly and precisely, providing excellent image quality in both photos and videos.
The AF 24-70 F2.8 FE enhanced the usability considering the user's shooting environment. This Samyang's first zoom lens features weather sealing for 7 spots to protect from light dust, rain, and snow and provide the ability to capture stunning images in less than perfect condi- tions.
Equipped with the Custom Switch, shooting and operation are more intuitive and simple. You can easily select various functions such as Aperture Control Mode or MF Mode from the Switch, and enjoy the shooting mode that suits your personal preference.
*More functions will be added through the firmware update in the future.
