Samyang announces the AF 85mm F1.4 for the RF mount
Samyang has announced the AF 85mm F1.4 for the RF mount. This will certainly delight some users that wished for a lighter, smaller 85mm lens instead of the Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM lenses.
Samyang from our understanding is using the EF protocol with the RF mount. This is of course, completely possible and the Canon RF cameras support this functionality. There are usually a few things that a Canon R camera will not do however in EF protocol modes, such as high-speed display and DLO lens conversions.
Samyang certainly has led the way, and I'm wondering when Sigma and Tamron will follow.
The lens will be released at $800 which is significantly cheaper than the Canon RF 85mm F1.2L which is around $2700.
