Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical (EOS) - APS-C format Review / Lab Test

  • Conclusion: The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical may be a very affordable lens but it's a very decent performer nevertheless. It is capable of delivering a very good center performance at f/1.4 although it's fairly soft in the image corners at this setting. The contrast level could be a tad better here as well. The global quality is pretty good at f/2.8 and impressive from f/4 onwards. At f/5.6 it is as good as the very best lenses out there.

  • Conclusion: I can honestly say I am pleasantly surprised at the performance of the Samyang. If it cost 500 or 1000 $, I might have a few reasons to complain. At 299 $ I won’t say a word. It presents a very reasonable offer for less affluent portrait photographers. In such circumstances we can be understanding of the few inevitable discrepancies.
  • Cons: After stopping down performs considerably worse than competing brands, Performance against bright light could be better, ‘Soft’ corners at full frame

Recensione: Samyang 85mm f/1.4, ritratti e bokeh di qualità a basso prezzo

  • Excerpt: Chiunque ami la ritrattistica "urbana" e non da studio dovrebbe possedere una lente dagli 85 ai 135mm. Sia su formato pieno che su crop 1.5 o 1.6 queste focali sanno regalare scatti magnifici. La qualità che un'ottica fissa consente di ottenere, nonché lo sfocato quando è molto luminosa, difficilmente si riescono a pareggiare con un equivalente zoom.

  • Excerpt: Zapowiedziany w lutym, a dostępny w sklepach od września 2007 roku, Steiner Night Hunter XP 8x44 jest lornetką o nieczęsto spotykanych parametrach. Ośmiokrotne powiększenie i średnica obiektywu wynosząca 44 cm, powoduje, że średnica źrenicy wyjściowej wynosi 5.5 mm. To pierwsza lornetka Steinera z Comfort Balance System, czyli z bardziej wyprofilowanym uchwytem. W pozostałych lornetkach XP mamy do czynienia z indywidualnym ustawianiem ostrości.
  • Pros: solidna i bardzo ergonomiczna obudowa,, wysoka transmisja,, bardzo duże pole widzenia ostre praktycznie do samego brzegu,, mała aberracja chromatyczna,, znikome pociemnienie na brzegu pola,, mała koma,, bardzo dobre odwzorowanie bieli,, wysokiej klasy pryzmaty i powłoki.
  • Cons: za duża dystorsja,, zauważalne odblaski,, brak wyjścia statywowego.
