Official: SAMYANG 100mm F/2.8 ED UMC MACRO Apr 02, 2015
Official: SAMYANG 100mm F/2.8 ED UMC MACRO
Samyang officially announced the new 100mm f/2.8 ED UMC Macro lens.

Focusing on the Essence of Nature

The real art designed for ultimate close-ups
  1. Macro Telephoto Manual Focus Lens
  2. Bright F2.8 aperture
  3. High refractive (HR) and extra low dispersion lens (ED)
  4. Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) technology of Samyang Optics
  5. Circular aperture with 9 blades
Macro Telephoto Manual Focus Lens
Samyang Optics 100mm F2.8 ED UMC MACRO is a macro telephoto manual focus lens designed for full frame sensor sizes. The maximum close-up magnification is 1:1. This macro lens with vivid color and soft out-focusing is the best lens for close-up images of flower and insects. It also can be used as a 100mm telephoto lens for landscapes and portraits.

Optical Features
Samyang 100mm F2.8 ED UMC MACRO has a low F number of F2.8. You may control the lens precisely when shooting under various exposure environment including relatively dark or too bright situations.
This lens features 15 lenses in 12 groups especially including a high refractive lens (HR) and extra low dispersion lens (ED) to minimize color aberration and unnecessary light dispersion in order to offer high resolution throughout the image. Ultra Multi Coating (UMC) of Samyang Optics is used to optimize the light penetration and minimizes flare and ghost. With such optical construction, it has 0.307m of minimum focal length to film subjects in a very near distance.

Hardware Features
There are 9 aperture blades designed to be almost as a full circle when aperture is closed which expresses starlike ray clearly and beautifully. The frame of the lens is compact and solid since it is made of high-strength aluminum alloy so you can create trustworthy images. Also, detachable petal-shaped lens hood minimizes flare and ghost by sheltering lens from unnecessary lights.
Available for 10 camera mounts: Canon EOS, Nikon AE, Pentax K, Sony ∝, Canon M, Fujifilm X, Samsung NX, Sony E, FT, MFT.
