A new addition to the Yongnuo lens family arrives: The 35mm f/1.4 Canon mount.
The design reminds of the Yongnuo 60mm f/2 macro. The construction is pretty similar.
35mm lenses are pretty common and really close to human vision. Prime lenses are usually better quality than zoom, lighter and less subject to damage.
35mm lenses are great for landscapes, portraits, street photography, and came sometimes be used for proxy/ close-up.
Nothing special in the product description, it looks like the previous lens released (7 pieces of aperture blades, gold-plated contact, focus distance indicator, quick AF and manual Focus (MF), live view focusing, multilayer coating, aspherical lens, bla bla bla, boring stuff.
Specifications of the YN35mm F/1.4:
- Focal length: 35mm
- Structure: 9 groups / 11 elements
- Minimal aperture: F/22
- Canon Mount
- Magnification ratio: 0.15X
- Filter diameter: 67mm
- Size: 80mm x 111mm
- weight: 810g (28.5 oz)
- Price: $400
You will find below the Yongnuo MTF curve graph as well as the lens structure of this new 35mm f/1.4
Giving estimation is tough, but when Yongnuo announce a new product, you can be pretty sure it will hit the market in the following month. Regarding the price, Yongnuo is usually pretty aggressive, so I am betting on a price in the $200-250 range.
EDIT January 2019: Lense came in December 2018, and it cost more than I expected. You can find it on Amazon for $400.
PS: A firmware update is already available and can be downloaded and installed from our dedicated firmware update page.
