The Samyang 85mm supports most SLR mounts and thus its dimensions vary accordingly. As a manual focus only lens, it does not support auto focus. This has enabled the manufacturer to produce a lens of exceptional quality while remaining significantly cheaper than equivalent lenses from either Nikon or Canon.
The lens contains one aspherical element.
It is also sold under a number of different brands such as Walimex, Rokinon, Vivitar and Bower.
Samyang has released the AE version of the lens for Nikon which includes a CPU and electronic contacts to allow for automatic exposure in all modes, including in camera models that do not normally support automatic exposure with manual focus Nikon Ai lenses.
