If you are looking for a value-priced fast telephoto lens, the Samyang 135mm f/2 ED UMC Lens is a good option to consider. At review time, it is the only value priced 135mm f/2 lens available. For a low price, this lens can deliver excellent image quality and imagery that garners attention.
This manual focus telephoto lens offers a fast f/2 maximum aperture for a price of around £380, which seems very good value for a 135mm lens with an f/2 maximum aperture.
Those interested in a fast 135mm, who are either on a budget or don’t need autofocus for their work, should certainly consider this lens. It’s more than capable of delivering sharpness on a par with high-end lenses, but at a fraction of the cost.
Excellent sharpness from maximum aperture, Smooth manual focus action, Good build, Low CA, Low distortion, Good value
Lack of autofocus may be enough to put many off this lens, Loss of contrast when shooting into the light
This might be the sharpest lens I have used on my A7RII's, shot wide-open, and I have shot all the FE lenses and most of the professional Canon L lenses, as well as a number of Leica lenses, on this camera. The sharpness is stunning! Also amazing is the nearly total lack of LoCA's and CA's.
This is exceptionally good lens for the price . Bought this lens after reading very good reviews for its astro capabilities which it did not disappoint. NO comma at wide open f2.0 which was a big plus.
This is a great lens. Very sharp. I am able to deal with the manual focus without any problem. In fact, this lens has turned me into a manual focus advocate - I now manually focus many of my 'automatic' lenses.I always try to focus wide open, with the shallowest possible depth of field.
Wish I could get more one with autofocus. Great lens. Must buy for portraits. Doesn't have that soft look when shot wide open like the nikons I have
Happy with this lens, sharp and excellent for portraits. I own the samyang 85mm f1.4 before so already accustomed to the build and manual nature of the lens, the 135mm is similarly sharp, the focus ring very smooth and not as damp as the 85mm (the 85mm was overly damped when focusing).
Bought this after buying and using the Samsung 85mm. Use both with Gx7. Am still getting used to this lens. It is very sharp, but you might have to close it down several stops to get the depth of field you desire.
Recieved new Samyang 135mm f/2.0 ED UMC lens for my Nikon D600 yesterday.Images I took were very sharp And Clear.I compared it to my Sigma 150mm 2.8 Micro lens .I found the Sigma performed on my camera sharper and I perfer it more.I have a problem mounting the Sigma on the D600 and also my D7200.Was...
This review is based on two weeks of use and about 650 exposures. Being my second Samyang manual lens my usage technique was already established based on the Samyang 85mm F1.4. This 135mm lens like the 85mm is all manual, no EXIF data (including distance, F stop and focal length) is transmitted to...
Superb lens for the money if you are okay with manual focus.
I'd read plenty of glowing reviews, but I was still amazed when I put my first shots up on my 30" monitor. Uncanny sharpness wide open, great color, and smooth bokah, dissolving into misty distance. The subject really pops.
