Independent lens maker Samyang (branded Rokinon in the US) is continuing to expand its range of reliable low-cost lenses – offering primes for practically every camera mount made. The new Samyang AF 35mm F1.8 FE is an extremely affordable general purpose lens for cameras like the Sony A7 III and A7R IV. But it can also be used in Sony A6000 series cameras too, offering a useful equivalent focal length of 52.5mm

The latest in Samyang's Tiny Series, the lens is not just small, it’s light too weighing just 210g, and is more affordable than Sony’s own prime lenses, especially the G Master series – some of the best Sony lenses are also some of the biggest!
