The lens is Samyang’s first “all-in-one” zoom, and it was created to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary. The AF 24-70mm f/2.8 FE, according to the firm, offers various video-optimized capabilities that will fit those who need to operate as both photographers and videographers in the emerging field of hybrid creatives

According to the company’s Research and Development engineer Dalkyu Kim, the new lens has functionalities that are specialized for video recording and are not found in regular zoom lenses.

The company developed a 17-element, nine-group design with customized optics and a premium-material barrel that is weather-sealed in seven places to protect it from light rain and dust. The business has included a linear STM motor for fast and precise autofocus that can track swiftly and is compatible with eye and face recognition, according to the company.

While the lens will undoubtedly work well for stills, Samyang’s marketing emphasizes that it is better suited for video, even though the lens’s weight distribution and physical proportions alter as it zooms. Samyang is also producing a Cine Kit for the lens, which has focus gearing, follow focus and a tripod attachment, and is geared at more professional video projects.

Summing Up

In the United States, the AF 24-70mm f/2.8 will most likely be sold under the Rokinon brand, with a retail price of $999. The lens is presently available for pre-order. While the quality of the lens cannot be determined until it is tested, the sub-$1000 pricing for a true parfocal lens is noteworthy in and of itself.
