Samyang Reflex 300mm F/6.3 ED UMC CS: 14 facts and highlights

1. widest aperture at maximum focal length

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
