The Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 RF, is an autofocus short-telephoto (portrait) lens for Canon RF mount cameras. This lens delivers beautiful bokeh, outstanding image quality and fast, silent autofocusing. Along with the previously launched, TIPA Award-winning AF 14mm F2.8 RF, this lens opens a door to new possibilities and options for Canon EOS R camera users.

The AF 85mm f1.4 RF makes no compromises in image quality: A total of 11 elements in 8 groups, with 4 high-refractive (HR) optics and an extra low-dispersion (ED) lens, have been optimised to create impressive image quality from corner to corner, even wide-open.

Samyang’s advanced optical design delivers smooth and creamy bokeh which adds depth and a three-dimensional feeling to your subjects. The 9 aperture blades provide natural, circular highlights with fantastic out-of-focus backgrounds that are pleasing to the eye.

The 85mm focal length, combined with a fast, wide maximum aperture of f/1.4, enables photographers to achieve a dramatically shallow depth-of-field, ideal for creating dramatic and flattering portraits.

The DLSM (Dual Linear Sonic Motor) uses ultrasonic vibrations to deliver fast, precise and silent autofocus performance.

Samyang has packed this lens with optical performance and additional features, such as: Weather sealing, which protects the lens from dust, light rain and snow and provides the ability to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions. Also, the AF/MF switch enables you to be in complete control and enjoy the freedom to capture finest details.

Outstanding Image Quality

Samyang’s RF series is known for its outstanding image quality, since the AF 14mm F2.8 RF was awarded the prestigious TIPA award in 2020 as ‘best mirrorless prime wide-angle lens.’ The new AF 85mm RF also makes no compromise in image quality: A total of 11 elements in 8 groups, with 4 high-refractive (HR) optics and an extra low-dispersion (ED) lens, have been designed to create impressive image quality from corner to corner.

Smooth and Dreamy Bokeh

Exceptional bokeh is presented with the knowhow of Samyang’s optical design. The smooth bokeh adds depth and a three dimensional feeling to your portraits. 9 aperture blades provide natural, circular bokeh with a fantastic out-of-focus effect that is pleasing to the eye.

Bright F1.4 for Treasured Portraits

Shallow depth of focus smoothly blurs the background and highlights the story of the subject. The 85mm focal length, combined with the wide maximum aperture of f/1.4, enables photographers to achieve a dramatically shallow depth-of-field. This optic offers great creative freedom: it yields images with depth, while maintaining an appropriate distance from the subject; it separates subject and background naturally, providing an impressive visual feeling of depth.
 

Fast and efficient autofocus with DLSM Technology

DLSM (Dual Linear Sonic Motor) works with ultrasonic vibrations, which cannot be heard by human ears, to successfully give a silent autofocus performance. The accurate high frequency signals, controlled with Samyang’s own protocols, precisely operate the DLSM. Specialists in optics, mechanical engineering, and electronics, have researched cooperatively to give these powerful results for a short telephoto lens. The introduction of DLSM technology on an 85mm lens means you can comfortably and silently capture the subjects you want, with quick efficiency.

Outstanding contrast with Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) technology

Samyang’s Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) technology is applied through a thorough cleaning process, followed by Ion-Beam Sputtering (IBS), which controls the spread of reflections while still enabling a high transmittance of light. This UMC technology reduces unwanted reflections and provides crystal clear image quality, minimizing flare and ghosting effects in high contrast environments, such as backlit pictures and nightscapes.

Enhanced Usability

Pioneering new territory, this lens is packed with features: Weather sealing protects the lens from dust, light rain and snow and provides the ability to capture stunning images in less than perfect conditions. Also, the AF/MF switch enables you to be in control and capture the finest details. You can enjoy the freedom of photographic expression, with all the latest functions.

Lightweight and Compact 85mm Lens

Thanks to its compact optical design and aluminum construction, AF 85mm F1.4 RF lens comes in a compact design suitable for mirrorless cameras. The length is less than 10cm and it weighs 582g without lens cap and hood, enabling photographers to capture unforgettable moments anywhere, anytime with portable lens.
