Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

April 23rd, 2020

In late March, Samyang contacted me to see if I wanted to look at a new lens.  I agreed, but they didn’t specify what the lens was.  I didn’t know until it arrived, but was very interested to discover a compact, portrait oriented prime lens at a focal length that I’ve never tested before – 75mm.  The Samyang (also sold as Rokinon in North America) AF 75mm F1.8 is a lightweight (230g/8oz) lens with a relatively fast maximum aperture of F1.8 and a new design element for Samyang.  There is now a custom switch on the side with two modes – allowing you to use the single ring similarly to Canon RF’s control ring.  It can be used for aperture control and manual focus at the moment, though Samyang promises that more options will be available via the Samyang Lens Station in the future.  This extra degree of control is welcome and is a sign of growing maturation in Samyang’s lens design.  With a compact size, light weight, good optical and autofocus performance, and a reasonable price tag ($399 USD), the 75mm F1.8 will be attractive to both full frame and APS-C shooters where it has a focal length equivalent of 112.5mm.   This image gallery will give you a sense of the rendering of the lens, which has a unique look with surprisingly nice bokeh. I’ll be reviewing the Af 75mm F1.8 on my Sony a7RIII and Sony a9 bodies, and you can see photos from both cameras below.  Stay tuned for my ongoing coverage.
