The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 Wide-Angle US UMC Aspherical Lens for Sony gives you an approximately 43deg. view when used with an APS-C camera, 63.1deg. when used with a full-frame camera and 33.4deg. using a Four-Thirds format camera - excellent for general photography and portraits. With hybrid aspherical lenses and multi-layer coating, you can produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. This manual focus lens focuses as close as 1.0' (0.30m) and has a removable petal lens hood.
