  • F2 large aperture,virtual background,which makes photography with more fun.
  • Support auto focus (AF) and manual focus (MF) mode.
  • The aperture blades up to 7 pieces,which allows you able to shoot the near-circular diffuse plaques,appropriately narrow the apertures can shoot the 14 astral effect.
  • Adopts chrome high precision metal bayonet,which effectively improve the goodness to fit the camera body and the bayonet strength, wear and corrosion resistance for durable use.
  • Full line of the products are glass lenses.
  • Supports full-frame and APS-C format cameras,supports M/AV/TV/P and other camera shooting modes,and can be displayed the aperture data in the EXIF Information.

    Sources are saying the Yongnuo lenses are outperforming original Canon design, this is promising! I wouldn’t mind Yongnuo remaking 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 135mm (all with autofocus), WATCH OUT SAMYANG!

    • Zos Xavius

      I looked closely at a comparison with the 50s and the Yongnuo outperformed it wide open by a large margin, but at the same time the canon had better peak performance stopped down. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don’t think canon has improved some of their formulas much over the years anyways. Aren’t the 50s and 35s still basically film era designs?

      • AYWY

        Both the 50mm f/1.8 II and 35mm f/2 released in 1990. So yeah I’m not feeling excited or inspired about YN besting products that are already a quarter-of-a-century old.

        Of course their patents would have already expired.

        Anyway, a glance at the published MTF shows that it is marginally better than the 1990 Canon 35mm f/2. The curves’ characteristics also look similar, so perhaps they really are copying Canon’s expired patents.

  • MonkeySpanner

    This is an interesting development. They can copy the cheapest (probably patent expired) lenses. Now if they copy a 24-70 f/2.8 – then they really have my attention.

    • Panchoskywalker

      I doubt they could perform the L quality glass.

      • MonkeySpanner

        Don’t bet on it. Sigma and Tamron have already shown that they can get d*mn close.

          ^ After many years of refinement and at price points Yongnuo likely knows nobody will pay for their products, is the thing. 🙂

  • James Donahue

    Would hope they would come out with a Nikon version

  • There can be a big difference between the measurements one gets from a perfectly optically figured and perfectly assembled lens, and production lenses. Tight QC is expensive to maintain on an assembly line, and the lower the price of the product the more tempting it is to lower standards to what the market will bear rather what the published specifications require.

    • Alex5000

      Agreed. I’d be quite surprised if the quality of the Yongnuo lenses didn’t eventually turn out to be all over the map, once significant quantities are extant.

  • Panchoskywalker

    Does it have more blades than the canon version?how many blades there is in the canon version?
