Remarkable quality for an inexpensive lens.

Excerpt: You get the sense that your average Canon engineer will (on the QT) use Samyang lenses. No autofocus, no auto-aperture. When you stop down the lens, what you see is what you get. The focusing ring is mechanical, so you don't have any sense of disconnection, when you engage focus. How it should be?
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Don't let the name scare you, it's the the same maker as the other big branded lens makers!

Summary: You could go for the bigger name lens makers, but you fail to realize this brand is still made by the same company! Razor sharp, beautiful images and videos - this is my go to lens when I need something a bit longer. Wish they made a shorter lens.
Summary: Thank you .Samyang, Bower and Rokinon for providing good quality lenses with reasonable prices. I have bought 8mm fisheye, 24mm, 35mm and 85 mm lenses from these 3 brands. They work all perfectly for video productions. The images are always sharpe, clear and crisp.
Summary: I love this little lens from Samyang. It is tack sharp as long as you can manually focus this little beast. I use a canon 70d. Either because of the APS-C sensor or the lens itself, I get a lot of chromatic aberration in high contrast shots. Other than that, it's well worth the money.
