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

Samyang continues to surprise us with the high quality of their recently released products. The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC is capable of delivering a very high quality straight from f/1.4. The contrast level is a bit reduced at max. aperture.

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. The contrast level is a bit reduced at max. aperture though.

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...

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.

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!

    None!

    Alas my example is not sharp at even F5.6. F1.4 to F2.0 it is simply woeful, appalling actually :( Bokeh is awful.

Samyang 35mm f/1.4 Having used Samyang lenses before (the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 and the Samyang 85mm f/1.4), I knew that the 35mm f/1.4 version would not disappoint. But while testing the expensive 35mm f/1.4 lenses, I still thought that it would show worse performance than all of its competitors.

For a fast, manual focusing prime lens, I'd give a properly functioning copy 5 stars. However, my copy had focusing issues. This copy had two 'focusing issues'. First, this lens has a 'chip' that recognizes when your subject is in focus and indicates as much in the viewfinder.

A couple of things I will mention. First off, the image quality is fantastic. Second, stunning clarity and contrasts. And finally, excellent price range. I would say this is the best lens from Samyang/Rokinon.

I would have loved to use this Rokinon, as I have heard great reviews. However I have a Nikon D5200 which is a cropped camera, not a full camera. Although it fits on a Nikon, the camera no longer makes this a wide angle lens.

who says we can not use this lens on events, I used it several times and don't have problem with it when subject is stationary. the sharpness and bokeh it gives is outstanding.

I recommend this lens for everyone who want an ultra large aperture lens but don't want to spend too much money for it!

    - nicely damped focus ring - build quality very ok for that price - very good image quality above f2.8

    - a bit too large - not very contrasty at f1.4
