About Samyang 85mm F/1.4

The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 IF MC Aspherical Lens for Sony is an ideal portrait lens. The f/1.4 aperture allows in a great deal of light and its focal length is perfect for capturing undistorted facial features. Each lens within its system has a multilayered, anti-reflective coating which reduces reflections of light on the lens surface and its internal focusing system provides smooth, grab-free manual focusing, which is also conducive to assured portrait photography. An iris diaphragm design helps to produce excellent bokeh, the slightly blurred, out-of-focus background that is a desired component of quality portraiture.

Samyang 85mm F/1.4 Features

  • Dedicated for use on Sony Alpha DSLR cameras
  • Smooth, internal focusing manual control
  • Multi-layered, anti-reflective coating

Great lens for a very good price

By

from Lakewood, Ca  -  Pro Photographer

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.

Perry T  Will I still get the color peaking on my Sony Alpha77 using this lens?
Andrew R  Only if the Alpha 77 supports that feature with manual focus, "un-chipped", lenses.
