Samyang has introduced the first third-party autofocus lens for Canon RF mount, the Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 RF. The new model joins the company’s similar AF 14mm F2.8 lens for Canon EF, featuring a 113.9-degree wide angle of view (89.8-degree APS-C) thanks to 14 elements in 10 groups, including one high-reflective element, two extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements.

Samyang says it ‘optimized’ the new AF 14mm F2.8 RF lens design so that it is compact enough for use with mirrorless cameras. The model measures 95.3mm (3.7in) in length and weighs 484g (1lbs). The lens is weather-sealed and includes a rear filter holder, AF-MF switch, and an optical design intended to ‘adjust the light flow and reduce the aberration.’

  • Aperture range: F2.8 – F22
  • Construction: 14 Elements in 10 groups
  • Coating UMC
