Samyang Tilt-Shift 24mm to be released in mid-May
Initially announced at last year’s Photokina exhibition, the Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC lens, featuring perspective control function, will be released in the UK in mid May.
Source of inspiration
Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC is a wide-angle prime lens designed for full frame cameras. Its optics and mechanic features enable independent shift of the optical axis and lens plane tilt. This feature, combined with the Tilt-Shift section rotation function, gives unlimited range of image creation options with the use of perspective and depth of field. The lens is an ideal tool for landscape and architecture photography, but it is also a limitless source of inspiration for ambitious photographers who express their emotions in new ways, through unique perspectives, precise placed focal planes, corrected convergence of lines within the frame and high-resolution panoramas.
Tilt-Shift function of the lens allows for smooth adjustment of the focal plane angle (from -8.5 to +8.5 degrees) and parallel shift of the lens optical axis by ±12 millimetres. Sections responsible for tilt-shift function may be rotated to the left by 30, 60 or 90 degrees against each other and the bayonet mount may also be independently rotated to the right by ± 90 degrees, also at 30 degrees increments.
The wide range of functionalities of this Tilt-Shift lens required designing sophisticated optics based on the highest quality elements. The lens features sixteen elements divided into eleven groups that include two aspherical lenses (ASP), to prevent spherical aberration effect, and two lenses made of low dispersion glass to reduce chromatic aberration. Each lens is covered with multi-layer anti-reflective UMC coatings that provide perfect light transmission, high contrast and faithful colour reproduction.
The Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC will be released in Canon EF, Nikon F and Sony A. fittings. Canon M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Pentax and Sony E fittings will be available at a later date.
