Rokinon Adds New 14mm F2.8 AF Full-Frame Lens For Sony's E-Mount

Recently, Rokinon released their first new AF labeled lens for Sony's E-mount cameras, the 50mm F/1.4 AF. This was the first lens in a new line of high-quality, full-frame E-mount lenses that feature a built-in autofocus motor (most all of Rokinon's previous E-mount lenses were full manual).

It offers Rokinon's IF (Internal Focusing) AF motor, which they claim works well "with
both phase detect and contrast detect sensors for fast, quiet and accurate focus detection." The lens also boasts a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture, which should allow it to offer great low-light performance.

This new ultra-wide prime lens is available for preorder now through authorized Rokinon dealers, with a MSRP of $849 US. Shipments are expected sometime in early October. Click here to preorder the lens from B&H Photo.
