It was designed to work especially with full-frame sensor cameras, nevertheless it may be also used with cameras featuring APS-C/DX and Four-thirds sensors. The device's optical construction comes with two lenses with high refractive index (HR) limiting its weight and dimensions. One aspherical lens (AS) protecting against chromatic aberration was also used. 

High-quality multi-layer and anti-reflexive coatings (UMC) increase the contrast and allow to generate more natural colours. Samyang 35mm 1:1.4 AS UMC lens takes advantage of the so called "gliding lenses" allowing to maintain high image quality with minimum focusing distance. AE model, intended for Nikon DSLR cameras feature a microprocessor unit allowing to have full control over the exposure parameters and freely use i-TTL flash control technology. Data on focal length and available apertures is recorded in EXIF format.
