  • Excerpt: My favorite lens for portrait work. It has excellent built quality and even with the size it's very comfortable when used off a tripod. Be aware that this lens minimum focus distance is about 3 feet.

Much better than anticipated

  • Excerpt: I got this Samyang 85mm f1.4 in Pentax mount. There is A position on aperture ring so this lens works in aperture priority mode very nice. Didn't try other modes as I use them seldom. It meters correctly and exposures are perfect. You can change aperture at the dial on camera body.

  • Excerpt: So we all now navigate by satnav, trusting our journey to the voice of our choice, well here you have a chance to get rewards for your own efforts. At first I found it frustrating to nail the focus but soon found a solution that works for me.

Patience has its rewards!

  • Excerpt: Lens is manual, does not have stabilization; don't let this hold you back, the quality of the images are amazing if you take your time. Some chromatic aberration exists at f1.4, however it disappears at 1.6. Focus range on lens is smooth and adequate to make easy precise adjustments.

Great lens for a very good price

Madman, Adorama

  • Excerpt: The lens is a surprise and very well worth the money if you don't mind the manual focus. If you're a professional then it should not be a problem. Compared to other lenses this is almost - very close - as good as a major manufacturer lens for the fraction of the price.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Great picture quality
