Summary: I've used this lens for some really important shoots and I'm very happy with the results. Samyang offers some great value for their product and this is by far the best Samyang Lens I've bought. Although it's been released for a while, I've used it with my Nikon D750 for photography and video.
Excellent lens. Look for least expensive branding.

Summary: I bought this Samyang lens for Nikon under the Vivitar brand. Also available as Rokinon, Bower, and others -- buy the one going for the lowest price. At F1.4 the lens is sharp in the center, but soft at the corners and edges. Noticeable vignetting that is correctable in post processing.
Summary: Thought that this lens would provide that extra measure of tack sharpness expected from a prime lens over a zoom. Some of the reviews rave about the sharpness and thought I was making a good choice.
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.
