Samyang 85mm F1.4 AF FE E-mount lens review by Collingsandheal
|Collingsandheal#45780 date: Oct-22-2021|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||FE85mm GM. FE85mm f1.8. Samyang 75mm f1.8.|
|positive:||Sharp and much lower distortion than most of it's opposition.|
Well built and feels solid in the hand.
Fantastic transition to out of focus areas.
|negative:||Girth. slightly warm white balance.|
|comment:||Sharper than the GM, significantly less distortion than the Sigma 85mm f1.4 FE, less chromatic aberrations than the FE85mm f1.8 and the softest transition to out of focus of any of them.|
The colours are a touch warm but fixable in white balance and there is no aperture ring which I have come to love on GM lenses but otherwise the best bang for buck for me by quite a margin.
