Developing Specialty in Optics to Become Worlds Best Technology with Accumulated MF Technology
Since its establishment in 1972, Samyang Optics has made its Manual Focus lenses with an outstanding resolution as its main product, and by launching six new products on average annually, it is recognized as a company of innovation and challenge in the global optics world. While diversifying product lineups with AF lens lineups aiming at the mass market, it is ceaselessly exerting efforts in developing the premium lens lineup XP series, which integrates its MF lens optical technologies that have been accumulated for 40 years. Through these XP products, the company provides brand experience that enables users to demonstrate their unique sensitivity and creativity through manual lenses.

Innovation with Cine Lens XEEN Following VDSLR in Video Lens
Following its VDSLR lenses exclusive for video, based on MF technology, with its cine lens XEEN, Samyang Optics is growing into a total imaging solution company. XEEN creates an excellent picture with X-coating Technology, which has been newly designed to create a cinematic look, and for this it is recognized as a lens that can realize beautiful colors and images that maximize the users creativity. This is also known as the lens that is patronized by the globally renowned movie directors Shane Hulburt and Steve Gainer, and Joseph Kahn, the director of Taylor Swifts music video.

It is hard to find a global optics manufacturer that develops and produces not only MF and AF interchangeable lenses for photo cameras, but also cine lenses for experts of cine cameras. This is because it is not easy to appropriately respond in different fields with different characteristics, and one of such handful of companies is Samyang Optics, a total imaging solution company that will open a new era in video lens, building on its achievement in photo lenses.
