The Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC. The official product presentation will take place on September 18th, during Photokina 2012 which is held in Cologne.

The Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC is a wide-angle, full-frame lens fitted with the perspective control and tilt-shift functions. Its unique optical and mechanical construction makes it an ideal tool for architecture and landscape photography. The product will also be extremely useful when convergence of lines in the frame is required. Owing to the mechanism of optical axis tilt, focus depth operation brings utterly new quality and possibilities, enabling photographers to shape the image according to their individual needs, both on digital and analogue carriers.

Optical design of the Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC comprises sixteen lenses arranged in eleven groups, including two aspherical lenses and two Extra Dispersion ED lenses. These elements enable the lens to perfectly reproduce detailed elements and provide superior optical performance even with the T-S function on. Furthermore, each optical component has been covered with multi-layered, anti-reflective UMC coatings, which provide great light transmission, high contrast and natural colours. With sophisticated optics and developed T-S function, the Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC is currently the most advanced lens produced by Samyang Optics.

Tilt-Shift function
Tilt-Shift function in the Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC allows for smooth and fine adjustment of the focal plane by an angle of /-8.5 and enables parallel shift of the optical axis by /-12 mm. To make Tilt-Shift function even more seamless, both the lens mount and the Tilt-Shift section may be rotated on the optical axis. The Tilt-Shift section may be rotated left by 90 degrees with 30 degree adjustment, while mount of the lens may be rotated both in left and right direction by 90 degrees with 30 degree adjustment.

Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC will be available later this year in the following mounts; Canon EF, Nikon F, Pentax and Sony A. Pricing is to be announced.
