Samyang has announced the launch of the new telephoto Samyang AF 75mm f/1.8 FE, a devilishly compact piece of glass that promises to intrigue Sony E-mount shooters. Weighing in at only 230g (without the lens-hood or cap), this lens is apparently the lightest and smallest autofocus 75mm currently on the market – according to Samyang.

The new Samyang AF 75mm f/1.8 FE is seemingly perfect for Sony E-mount users who don't want to be lumbered down with hefty kit that gets in the way of their creativity. The lens promises to deliver fast, quiet and accurate autofocusing using a new Linear Stepping Motor (STM). It also has a custom-mode switch that allows you to control the function of the focus ring to your own preference.
