Korean camera gear company Samyang has announced a new Rokinon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens. The manual focus lens provides life-size 1:1 magnification for macro photographs and can be used as a lens for portraits as well.

Features of the lens include a high refractive index element, an extra-low dispersion element, high quality multi-coating, a 1-foot minimum focusing distance, a front filter mount that doesn’t rotate during focusing, and a 9-blade diaphragm.

The lens will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Fujifilm X, Pentax K, Micro Four Thirds, Samsung NX, Sony A, and Sony E mounts. One extra feature found in the Nikon F version of the lens is a chip that can relay focus info, auto-exposure modes, and EXIF data from the lens to the camera.

The 100mm f/2.8 will be available starting at the end of April 2015 at the price of $549 — the same price that Samyang’s new 135mm f/2 lens is being sold at.
