No promises, but I would like to write a full Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Lens review in the future. In the meantime, I think that you will find the standardized Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Lens results currently available to be helpful.

The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical may be a very affordable lens but it's a very decent performer nevertheless. It is capable of delivering a very good center performance at f/1.4 although it's fairly soft in the image corners at this setting. The contrast level could be a tad better here as well.

Just got my second hand copy. The hood ring was loose other than that its awesome rich and creamy. I also have 85mm 1.8G but when compared to this you wont see much of a difference but still it will be creamier than 1.8. I just love it. I think im just going to go ahead and sell my 1.8 G version.

The item listing stated " Lens cap missing" , this was the case. However the lens hood was also missing.. This has cost £20.00 to replace. Otherwise an excellent item.

This lens has NO AUTO FOCUS and produces a lot of noise in dark areas of image. However its a bliss when we use it for tabletop indoor and controlled lighting environment. Overall, its not suitable for street and hobby photography rather it is for pro/mid level product or architectural photography.

It's a beautiful lens and able to capture brilliant images in any light. Remember it's a manual only lens so it will teach you a lot about the importance of focus

A great quality, solid build, manual focus lens, the perfect budget choice for portrait photography, love it! Only downside is no AF but that doesn't matter if you aren't lazy
