The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 Wide-Angle US UMC Aspherical Lens for Nikon With Focus Confirm Chip gives you an approximately 43deg. view when used with an APS-C camera, or 63.1deg. when used with a full-frame camera - excellent for general photography and portraits. It includes a special chip that allows the lens to work with the camera's focus confirm, auto exposure, auto metering and auto white balance functions. With hybrid aspherical lenses and multi-layer coating, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The 35mm lens focuses as close as 1' (30.48 cm) from the lens and has a removable petal lens hood.
