A fully-manual prime lens with a fast aperture at a bargain price

Weak performance at wide aperture
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.
If you're looking for a sharp, moderate wide angle with a fast aperture and can live with focusing manually, you need look no further. The performance at f/1.4 is amazing for a lens that costs under £400, and this is with good build quality, low CA, distortion and falloff that is typical of lenses...
Very inexpensive, Excellent sharpness, even at f/1.4, Even better sharpness when stopped down a little, Low CA and distortion, Good build
Contrast suffers when shooting into the light

Available in a range of mounts, and both Four Thirds and Samsung NX versions, the Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC is an attractive lens for CSC users wanting a fast prime. Samyang’s 35mm f/1.4 AS USM features a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture that’s two-thirds of a stop faster than an f/1.8.
The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC is the company’s most expensive lens to date, but at a street price of around £320 it is only about 25% of the price of a comparable optic from the likes of Canon, Nikon and Sony. This means that the Samyang model is around £1,000 cheaper than its rivals.
Samyang continues to surprise us regarding the quality of their recently released products. The full format Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC is capable of delivering a very high quality straight from f/1.4 - at least within the tested APS-C scope. The contrast level is a bit reduced at max.
In this summary you can write just one thing: aces of the photographical market, it’s high time you got down to work seriously! If Samyang is able to launch a 540$ lens which, when it comes to the image quality, is only slightly worse than the Canon 35L, which can compete on equal terms with the...
very good, momentarily even splendid image quality in the frame centre,, good image quality on the edge, even on full frame,, low lateral chromatic aberration,, moderate distortion,, splendidly corrected astigmatism,, the smallest vignetting in the 1.4/35 class lenses,, decent work against bright...
visible longitudinal chromatic aberration,, noticeable coma.
I just can't get over the image quality of this lens. I shoot landscapes mainly from F5.6-11 and for my application I would have to spend $5000 on the Otus 35mm to get better image quality.
Sharp fast lens. I'd buy another.
Excellent lens, no autofocus, no VR very sharp
I am using this lens for a moment.. Yes It is manual with chip... Even sometimes doesn't confirm, it is not big issue for manual lens lovers... The good thing is, even not confirming, menus on camera and option AV / P / FULL AUTO / all works like automatic and very good result.
Love my 50mm lens but I want to get in closer to someone or something and still have that sharpness, this lens does just that for me.
I used this len at a wedding and the sharpness of the video was awesome.
Sick lens, sick price.
get one! this is a wonderful lens!
sharp sharp sharp; contrasty
This lens is the best 35mm 1.4 lens i've ever had! Both video and image quality is tact sharp!
Obviously from positive reviews elsewhere I must have a dismal example of this lens. Caveat Emptor. I will never buy another Samyang lens. Try as I might I cannot any longer bring myself to put on my camera.... It really is that e'ffing useless!
Alas my example is not sharp at even F5.6. F1.4 to F2.0 it is simply woeful, appalling actually :( Bokeh is awful.
