Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC review

Amateur Photographer
27 October 2012
  • Summary: When using such the shallow depth of field that an f/1.4 lens offers, a manual-focus-only lens is a good reminder of just how useful autofocus is. Even a skilled photographer will find that there are numerous occasions when the manual focus is ‘off' in everyday images.

29 August 2012
  • Conclusion: It may be a bit embarrassing for the original manufacturers but the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC manages to produce a quality similar to its roughly double priced counterparts.

Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS IF UMC Lens Review

ePHOTOzine
4 July 2012
  • Summary: For the price, this Samyang 24mm f/1.4 offers a decent, budget introduction to fast aperture lenses. Although the sharpness delivered at f/1.4 may not be up to that delivered my manufacturer’s own lenses, it may still be usable for some applications, and it certainly costs a lot less too.
  • Pros: Very good value for the price, Excellent sharpness when stopped down, Good build, Good sharpness in the centre stopped down to f/2 or beyond
  • Cons: A little soft at f/1.4, Pronounced falloff at f/1.4

  • Excerpt: Объектив позволяет получать высококачественные снимки даже при полностью открытой диафрагме, что говорит о первоклассной резкости и контрастность. Искажения по краям изображений сводятся к незначительному диапазону, это достойный показатель, особенно для широкоугольных объективов.
