Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Review

What Digital Camera
29 June 2011
  • Summary: Overall it is very difficult to characterise this lens. It is certainly a specialist optic on account of being manual-only, but it also looks and feels great. It's a bit heavy but you are getting an ultra-bright f/1.4 maximum aperture and well-corrected optical performance.
  • Pros: Bright aperture, build quality
  • Cons: Weak performance at wide aperture

  • Excerpt: Samyang's 35mm f/1.4 AS USM features a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture that's two-thirds of a stop faster than an f/1.8. This wider opening lets more light in, and is ideal for using faster shutter speeds in low-light situations or producing slightly more blur behind subjects.
