Unbeatable for the price, but...

  • Excerpt: In 2014, I bought the AE version of this lens as the first 35mm pairing for my Canon 6D. It quickly became my go-to lens for anything that didn't absolutely require AF. The bokeh quality, vignetting, and color rendition of this lens are unbelievable for such an affordable piece of glass.

Great lens but

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens. I find that I love using it because of its 1.4 maximum aperture that allows me to use it for low-light situations. However, at 1.4, you have to be very calculating about the area you want in focus, because that depth of field is indeed shallow.

Just what I needed

Waegwan, B&H Photo
1 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this on a crop sensor Canon 50D as it gives me a 56mm equivalent on a film or full sensor camera. I have an 18-200 lens but it only goes down to f/3.5 of 4 at 50mm so I need this for the depth of field it can give with the f/1.4 aperture.

  • Excerpt: If you don't mind everything that is manual on this lens, GET IT!! It is the best 35mm F/1.4 lens out there! It's beats both the Canon and Nikon in terms of sharpness. You get more than what you pay for!! ;)

much better background bokeh at f/1.4 than the Nikon 35 /1.4, or the new $5,000 LEICA SUMILUX-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH

  • Summary: Samyang 35mm f/1.4 Having used Samyang lenses before (the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 and the Samyang 85mm f/1.4), I knew that the 35mm f/1.4 version would not disappoint. But while testing the expensive 35mm f/1.4 lenses, I still thought that it would show worse performance than all of its competitors.

Great lens but this copy had issues

Karl "Face", Amazon

  • Summary: For a fast, manual focusing prime lens, I'd give a properly functioning copy 5 stars. However, my copy had focusing issues. This copy had two 'focusing issues'. First, this lens has a 'chip' that recognizes when your subject is in focus and indicates as much in the viewfinder.

Best Lens!

  • Excerpt: It goes without saying this lens is the best lens and also the sharpest lens I've ever used so far. When I picked up this lens, honestly I didn't know much about Samyang's lenses except, i've heard of them from quite a few forums.

no longer a wide angle on a cropped camera

Mary, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: I would have loved to use this Rokinon, as I have heard great reviews. However I have a Nikon D5200 which is a cropped camera, not a full camera. Although it fits on a Nikon, the camera no longer makes this a wide angle lens.
