Sharp, Affordable, but focus is hit or miss with optical viewfinder!

  • Summary: Sharp, decently built, but very hard to focus consistently. I'll admit it - I have to have electronic focus!

False Description

Raquel Brown, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I would like to start out by saying the quality of the lens is great however in the description it said that it had a focus sensor and it did not. When I receive a product I want it as described.

Great lens but this copy had issues

Karl "Face", Amazon
13 January 2014
  • 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. Snap a photo when the indicator says your subject is in focus and the resulting image will be slightly out of focus. This was an issue at all apertures.

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. But, now I that I've tried this lens, I'm so glad I made the choice, and it has become my favorite lens ever since. If you are puzzled to which lens to get, Samyang has its own website, so you can go take a look.

  • Summary: Rokinon 35mm 1.4 UMC Wide Angle Lens for Nikon is an excellent Lens. I am amazed by it's clarity and sharpness...right down to 1.4. Crystal Clear. A better lens than Nikon's 35mm 1.4 G and Cheaper. Lot's Cheaper..and better Results. Highly Recommended.

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. Everything else worked great, the lens was solidly built, great glass, but the field of view is changed by a APS-C sensor. I would recommend researching lens that actually say, for APS-C cameras, rather then 'it fits'..

  • Excerpt: i used this lens for video with my canon 7d the image looks sharp at f1.4 small dof very smooth manual focus ring for video its awesome... this lens is all manual so not for fast action photography but great for other projects its going to be on my camera all the time instead of my canon lenses because of the unique look of the f1.4 for a 35mm lens!!!
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Smooth Focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Large lens
