Optimized Features for Video Shooting
Zoom Lens Offering Stable Video Recording
The AF 24-70mm F2.8 FE lens is optimized for video shooting. In a professional video recording environment that utilizes follow focus, it provides a par-focal function that maintains focus on the subject when zooming in and out. The seamless focus control ring, adopting the linear MF which allows focus change linearly in response to focus ring rotation, enables more intuitive and accurate follow focus control, compared to other electronic focus control rings. In addition, the focus speed is smoothly controlled when shooting the video on the autofocus mode, this lens provides a very stable video, in which focus wobble is reduced.
Customized Cine Kit for
More Professional Video Shooting
A Samyang Cine Kit, consisting of focus gearing, follow focus, and tripod mount, enables you to shoot professional video. With this Cine Kit, you can easily exchange the shooting system such as the lens or the follow focus, so it saves your time changing systems for shooting.
This kit is designed, considering the user's shooting environment, so manoeuvrability is very good. For instance, an additional accessory is usually needed to utilize the rod, but a huge accessory like a cage is unnecessary when you have a Samyang Cine Kit.

A Versatile, Bright Standard Zoom Lens

Impressive Background Blur and Bokeh with Bright F2.8 Aperture
Bright aperture of the AF 24-70 F2.8 FE offers beautifully blurred background. The subject and background are effectively separated with shallow depth of field, creating impressive images highlighting the subject. The 9-blade circular aperture contributes natural-looking bokeh and the beautiful starburst effect.
Short Minimum Focusing Distance
The minimum focusing distance is just 0.35m (1.15ft), so it is possible to produce a unique perspective close to the subject. It makes it easier to take various images such as food on tables or portraits with exaggerated features.
Advanced Fast and Quiet AF
