Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

August 2nd, 2019

Samyang has previously released a couple of very compact autofocusing prime lenses for Sony, though with only moderately wide maximum apertures of F2.8.  People loved the size of the lenses, but the autofocus systems were not always quite there.  Fast forward to 2019 where Samyang has just hit a home run with the AF 85mm F1.4 (a truly excellent lens), and Samyang has gone back to the small and light formula for its most recent lens.  The Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 is very light and compact (making it an intriguing option for those of you with an A6000 series camera, too), but Samyang has added its recent progress with much more refined dual linear motor autofocus.  I’m personally a fan of the 45mm focal length, and have reached for the Tamron SP 45mm F1.8 VC lens a lot in the past.  The Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 promises to be an easy lens to bring along, and will probably be a tempting option…if the performance measures up.  You can get a sense of the lens’ performance from the images below, and stay tuned for my ongoing coverage.
