Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 X for Fujifilm X-Mount cameras

The Transcontinenta Group, distributor of Samyang in the Benelux, introduces the new Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 X for Fujifilm X-Mount cameras.

At 257g, this new autofocus telephoto lens is surprisingly light, making it a perfect fit for Fujifilm APS-C X-mount cameras. The lens is up to two times lighter than comparable lenses available today. It is perfect for still photography, but also for video. Its light weight makes it very easy to use on a gimbal, for example. The Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 X has a focal length of 112.5mm, taking into account the 1.5x APS-C crop factor, making it perfect for portrait, street, and nature photography.

This compact prime lens offers outstanding performance thanks to Samyang's 50 years of lens design experience. The two HR (High Refractive) and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements of the new AF 75mm F1.8 X ensure stunning contrast and high resolution in all areas of the image. Notably, this lens does not contain a single aspherical lens element, creating a soft and refined bokeh effect. As mentioned above, the Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 X is also great for shooting video, thanks to its silent and fast autofocus system and the new 'Preset Aperture Control' function on the 'Custom Switch - Mode 2'. This allows Fujifilm camera users to smoothly control the depth of field without any noise or vibration during (video) recording.

Finally, the AF 75mm F1.8X can be used in all (weather) conditions thanks to special seals at no less than five points on the body. This prevents damage or contamination from dust, rain or snow.

Key features:
  • Compact size and light weight.
    At 69mm in length and 257g in weight, the Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 X is the smallest and lightest autofocus telephoto lens for the Fuji X mount.
  • Superb resolution across the entire frame.
    The 2 HR (High Refractive) and 3 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements of the new AF 75mm F1.8 X deliver stunning contrast and resolution throughout the image.
  • Beautiful background blur with soft bokeh.
    The nine-blade aperture, high brightness and optical design create beautiful bokeh.
  • Fast and accurate autofocus.
    The autofocus of the Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 X follows the subject quickly and accurately, working silently in video recording mode.
  • Two Custom Switch Modes.
    A new feature for Fujifilm X-mount lenses is available on this lens. With the 'Preset Aperture Control' of 'Custom Switch - Mode 2', you can easily adjust the depth of field while shooting with autofocus. All without noise or vibration.
    The Custom Switch - Mode 1 works with the Focus Control function in MF shooting mode, allowing precise manual focusing by turning the focus ring.
  • Modern design with splashproof seals.
    The AF 75mm F1.8 X also features the stylish Samyang AF 2nd generation design and seals at five different locations to protect against external (weather) influences.
