Samyang 85mm F/1.4 Reviews Powered by TurnTo®

Great lens for a very good price


The lens is a surprise and very well worth the money if you don't mind the manual focus. If you're a professional then it should not be a problem. Compared to other lenses this is almost - very close - as good as a major manufacturer lens for the fraction of the price. Sharpness and distortion (lack of) is on par with the best lenses. Get your hands on one, I think the price is going to go up very soon.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Dr. Cornel C  Does it come with the "focus Confirmation chip"? As the Nikon version has.
Andrew R  Focus confirmation chip is not specified.
Carol B  Will this work with Canon Rebel EOS T 3 ?
Andrew R  Yes, this manual focus lens should work on the EOS Rebel T3.
Dr. Cornel C  Thanks I knew that from the ad. Maybe I will ask it differently. Do you supply a focus confirmation chip adapter?
Andrew R  I'm unaware of any sort of adapter. The way the chip would work it would need to have data stored on the specific lens you're using (max and min aperture, focal length, etc.). I don't think that would be possible with an add-on adapter.
