Samyang XP 85mm F1.2 Lens for Canon EF Full-Frame and APS-C format DSLR cameras



The Samyang XP 85mm F1.2 is a premium, manual focus photo lens designed for high resolution photography. In pursuit of image quality itself, this new lens is equipped with the most advanced optical technology among Samyang Lenses.

With over 40 years of research and development in optics, Samyang integrates the essence of history and introduces a signature lens line-up. It has unprecedented resolving power, matched to 50 megapixel photos and 8K video productions. The resolving power contains abundant pixel information, allowing photographers the freedom in post-production to create a unique image of their own. It enables you to capture life-long memories using the beautiful Bokeh, out-focusing and starburst effect to create unforgettable images.

The F1.2 maximum aperture makes this 85mm by far the brightest lens in existing full frame DSLR lenses. It gathers light like no other and helps secure the fastest possible shutter speed or de-focus everything but the subject. There are ten optical elements in seven groups, incorporating one aspherical lens and two high refractive lenses. The aspherical lens minimises aberration and unnecessary light dispersion and two high refractive lenses effectively adjust the path of light and deliver maximum amount to the sensor for a clear and vibrant image. This optimal performance creates astounding image quality from the centre to corner of the image. Also, the minimised aberrations enhance clarity, creating an even more impressive image than your eyes can actually see. An aluminium-alloy metal body has been adopted for maximum durability. With a sleek, yet unprecedented design with flowing curves, this signature line-up is a one-of-a-kind lens. Handling and ergonomics have been optimised with the lens having a maximum diameter of 95mm.

We will buy or part-exchange your cameras, lenses, accessories, spotting scopes and binoculars.

We are able to give you a rough price - however we will need to see your gear to give you a final price.

The market fluctuates rapidly and there are a number of considerations we have to make when purchasing equipment from our customers. Our prices undoubtedly are less than you would get if you were to sell privately. The reason for this is, when we sell them to a customer we have to provide a warranty - and with growing costs for repairs this has to be a key consideration.

We’ll always offer as fair a deal as possible and are happy to negotiate or in some instances offer a commission sales basis.

To enquire about selling or part exchanging any items, please complete our online form and ensure you select 'Selling / Part Exchange' within the enquiry type dropdown.

Many thanks, Justin
