The Australian distributor of Samyang lenses, Maxxum, is staging a one-off online sale with discounts of up to 27% on select models of photo and cine lenses, but you’ll need to hurry as these offers end at 5pm AEST on 28 May.
Samyang has built its reputation on making affordable high-performance manual focus lenses for both photography and cinematography, but the company now also has a growing line-up of autofocus models.
Included in the sale are models for Canon and Nikon full-frame full-frame DSLRs, including the 8mm f/3.5 UMC II fish-eye – which is a manual focus lens – and the 14mm f/2.8 AF UMC-II ultra wide-angle, both in the EF and F mounts. Additionally, the 14mm f/2.8 autofocus wide-angle is available in the Pentax K bayonet fitting.
If you’re a mirrorless camera user, the sale includes Samyang lenses in the Canon EF-M, Sony E and FE, Fujifilm X and Micro Four Thirds fittings. Even Samyang’s latest models for the Nikon Z and Canon RF mirrorless system mounts are available with healthy discounts of up to 17%.
For video-makers, there’s a big selection of the much-acclaimed XEEN series cinema lenses with an 11% price reduction. Samyang’s photo lenses are backed by a manufacturer’s warranty of two years, and the XEEN models have a three-year warranty.
