Mission Accomplished


from Richland, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

As a serious amateur landscape photographer, I find this lens to be an excellent choice. It yields razor sharp imagery with extreme depth of field on my D800E. This lens is one of the best price to value propositions on the market today.


Disappointing star images


from Granite Gap, New Mexico  -  Photo Enthusiast

I had read good reviews of this lens for my hobby, astrophotography. However, my lens clearly had something wrong. The stars were quite good in the center, and also good toward one edge of the frame, but toward the opposite edge, star images became flared to a horrible degree. There was no way to focus the lens to get around this. Clearly, one of the elements was either mounted improperly in the lens I received, or was made wrong. I gave up on this lens and, quite literally, deposited it in the trash. I know others have had better luck, and I've seen good star images from others, but my lens was, quite simply, defective. I do have another lens (85mm)from this manufacturer, and it delivers good stellar images across the field, but this one was not useable.


Razor Sharp, and Excellent Price!


from Illnois, chicago  -  Photo Enthusiast

It is a razor sharp lens, and the fact that it's a manual focus is very forgiving once you learn your ways to go about it. Plus, it is what makes this lens amazing value for money. I cannot say enough this lens has been one of my favorites. I use this lens for shooting landscape, and it has been producing exceptional-quality photos. It also works perfectly well in other types of shooting situations, so I tend depend on this lens a lot. Yes, focusing is always challenging, since it's "manual," but if you are a photographer who can handle it, go for it, and you are going to be more than satisfied for sure.

Unbeatable price-quality ratio


from Switzerland  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This lens is a gem ! Sharpness, focus range, ease of use, compatibility, and also very low distortion, why pay more to get something less performing ? I own more than 30 different lenses for my D4, and this one rank in the top league.

Questions about this item:

MOLLY M  Why did you choose the Samyang lens which is a little more expensive than the Bower, ProOptics, or Rokinon lens? Supposedly they are made by the same company. However, the Samyang brand seems to have more followers from what I have been able to review. I would appreciate any feedback you might be willing to share as to why you purchased this particular brand as I plan on purchasing one of them from Adorama in the next couple weeks. Regards, MAM in KY
DALE M  Great question! I read up on these lenses as much as possible and found that the Samyang had the fewest percentage of complaints. I have heard that the others were sometimes off with there focusing and I even found an instructional video that somebody posted on how to take apart and repair the focus so that "3 feet" would actually be in focus at 3 feet away, not 10' (I think that was on a ProOptics). As far as I could tell, they all had the same or similar photo quality and same "mustache" distortion (only really noticeable in some photographs, like close-up photos of items with a lot of straight lines) Ultimately, I paid a few extra dollars on a gut-feeling and I have no regrets. The focus ring seem accurate and having a manual focus wide angle lens is not as difficult/challenging as I thought it would be. The build and photo quality seem pretty good to me. This is the only non-Canon lens that I have in my bag (50mm, 24-70L, 70-200LII, 100L macro) and I still recommend it to others. It's a fun lens at an unbeatable price!
MOLLY M  Hi Dale: Thanks so much for your response and all the good information! I have actually purchased the Samyang lens (and glad I did based on some of the rebuilding that has taken palce with some of the others), and am looking forward to learning to use it! Again, I appreciate your reply. Kind regards, MAM
vicente m  Does it fix to 50D Canon mount ?
Andrew R  Yes, this lens should work with most Canon EOS film and digital SLRs (including the 50D)
