Hello All!

Offered for sale is a Rokinon/Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 lens for Sony E mount in Excellent used condition. It can also be mounted to the Nikon Z mount with the correct adapter, including auto-focus (Google “Techart Pro Autofocus Adapter")! This is a full frame lens with auto-focus. Don't confuse it with the older, manual-focus version of this lens.

This may not be the most traditional lens for astrophotography, but it can definitely be used for such purposes as Milky Way + landscape shots and star trails. In fact, unless you want nearly the whole sky or Milky Way in your shot, this may provide even better framing than an ultra wide lens such as the 14mm I've also got listed for sale. Neither is better or worse, just different. With this lens you can emphasize the foreground subject a little better. This of course depends on your desired composition. As a bonus, this is a great standard focal length for "regular" photography. The auto-focus makes that use case even more user-friendly. Although most of us probably use manual focusing for astrophotography, the bright f/1.4 aperture of this lens could probably actually allow for auto-focusing on the stars. That could potentially remove quite a bit of headache from the whole process! (I highly recommend manually focusing if you use this lens stopped down, however. If you try to auto-focus at f/1.4 and then stop down afterward, you won't be getting the sharpest possible stars. This advice goes for pretty much any lens/telescope. Always focus at the aperture you intend to shoot at.)

I don't have this lens with me at the moment, which is why I also don't have pics to go with this ad. As such, if you decide to purchase this lens I won't be able to ship it out for a few days. To annoy the CN staff as little as possible, I won't be updating this ad with pictures, so do contact me if you'd like to see some.

This lens goes for about $530 to $600 new. I'm asking $450 for this used lens in Excellent condition. I'll cover PayPal fees. You pay shipping. Local pickup in Salt Lake City area is also okay. I'll also consider reasonable offers, so feel free to contact me!
