As the resolution of the sensors grows, the lenses must evolve at the same time to maintain a high level of quality. As we mentioned earlier , a low acutancia and resolution in an lens will give a low image quality, which will only become more noticeable when increasing the resolution of the camera. To meet the needs of the most demanding cameras, Samyang presented his latest goal of the XPert line: The Samyang XP 35mm F1.2 .
The new Korean lens is the new angular that fills the space between the great jump that was in the Xpert line, which now has focal lengths of 14mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm. Like its brothers, it has a high quality design in metal body and glass elements. They have been designed to provide high performance to 50 MP sensors and 8K video . At the moment, it was announced that it will arrive for Canon EF mounts.
The new XP 35mm features a nine-blade diaphragm and an aperture range from F1.2 to F16. It has an internal construction of 12 elements divided into 10 groups . It has a range of focus from 34 cm to infinity. It has a diameter of 93mm, a length of 117.4mm and a weight of 1.1 Kg.
As reported by DPReview , the target has an estimated release date of January 2019. Its launch price will be $ 999 .
