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.

  • Cons: A little soft at f/1.4, Pronounced falloff at f/1.4
