While I would like to complete a full Samyang 24mm f/1.4 US UMC Lens review in the future, please use the standard lens test results for now.
Handling and features This lens is available to fit many different types of cameras, including Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony and Four Thirds SLRs as well as Samsung NX mirrorless cameras.
Apart from a lack of sharpness at very wide apertures, image quality is very convincing from this Samyang, making it very good value.
Samyang has long been a minor player in the UK lens market, but with supply improving, new releases extending the company’s range and each model available in most of the popular lens mounts, Samyang may just find itself emerging from the shadows.
It may be a bit embarrassing for the original manufacturers but the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC manages to produce a quality similar to its roughly double priced counterparts. Admittedly, the 24mm f/1.4 suffers from slightly lower contrast at large apertures but the resolution is already pretty...
For the price, this Samyang 24mm f/1.4 offers a decent, budget introduction to fast aperture lenses. Although the sharpness delivered at f/1.4 may not be up to that delivered my manufacturer’s own lenses, it may still be usable for some applications, and it certainly costs a lot less too.
Very good value for the price, Excellent sharpness when stopped down, Good build, Good sharpness in the centre stopped down to f/2 or beyond
A little soft at f/1.4, Pronounced falloff at f/1.4
Our summary can be a simple parable about climbing to the top, which was too quick, and a very painful downfall. After several very successful launches Samyang assumed too hastily that they belong to the elite and they can offer a lens with professional parameters in every category for a price not...
very good image quality on stopping down the lens by 1.5 EV,, chromatic aberration well-controlled,, decent work against bright light,, well-corrected coma on APS-C/DX and smaller detectors.
real aperture of the lens is much closer to f/1.8 than to f/1.4 or/and wrong conctruction of the diaphragm,, distortion level higher than in the case of its competitors,, slackened manual focus ring,, very high vignetting on full frame,, no contacts in the Canon mount version,, weak image quality by...
I had read that quite a few astrophotographers had noticed that the images had a defect at one side. I had taken daylight photographs and had not noticed anything odd but the first photo of stars showed clear distortion to the right side of the image.
Bought specially for astrophotography this lens is superb. Some glorious milky way shots from Devon. Using it on EOS 5D Mk III
I own many SamYangs; and I like this one very much; good for walkaround
can catch some flair; not very sharp at 1.4 - 2.0
Don`t remember so nothing unfavourable.
The box contained dust and a piece of old sticky tape, the lens had wear marks on the bayonet fitting.
Overall a quite good wide angle lens for photographers who have time for image setup, focussing,...
well suited for astrophotography
Large housing, could be more compact no chip/auto focus
I have just done a few tests, no real night shots, which is why I bought it. Using Focal software, in theory the quality is poor under f2.2 In practice, it compared favorably (at f2.8) with a much more expensive 25mm lens.
Really impressed with this Lens, wanted a manual focus, fast lens for Timelapse/Aurora and Astrophotography as well a Landscape Lens,I tried it out locally on a Canon 40D and got great results of Milkyway .Can't wait to try it on a Full Frame 6D.
Firstly to provide some context to this review, I reviewed this lens alongside the Samyang 35mm lens using a Canon 5D which has a full-frame sensor (and therefore no CCD cropping). As a child when I first got to play with cameras, I had a 50mm and 35mm lens.
First impressions are that this is a well made, good quality lens; although quite large at around 102mm long and not light at 680g. In use the initial impressions are confirmed, it is capable of taking good quality, sharp pictures.
