Product Overview

Samyang 135mm F1.8 AF is an affordable medium telephoto prime lens for Sony E-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Samyang in 2022, it has 13 elements in 11 groups.
While the lens is not built to the standards of more exclusive brands, for incremental weathers, Samyang is kind enough to include weather sealing.
A telephoto prime lens, the Samyang 135mm F1.8 AF is well suited for portrait photography. It may not be the sharpest in its class, in this case the photographer cares more about the rendering, which is very smooth and soft for the new 135/1.8 AF.
