Pros: Sharpness from F2 with a great restitution of colors. It's quite very solid and has a weight well balanced. Remarquable transmittance (T2.2).

Cons: The manual focus but that's the game ;) The focusing ring is a bit hard on the video edition of this lens…

Opinion: For 338 € on a black Friday, I let myself be tempted by this lens for video reports. (You still can find it at that price I presume). I have got the Samyang 135mm T2.2 VDSLR II ED UMC version, which is fitted with a narrow focusing ring, hard and indented in order to receive the follow focus. Apart from that the photo and video versions have exactly the same optic composition. So, then, I tried it to take pictures. And to me since the very first trigger, the optical result is magnificent! For now, among my five lenses this one is my favorite. Within two months of event work, I have been using it on a second camera with an average of two hundred pictures per day (which actually is a lot for a manual lens). Furthermore that frenzy cost me real pains in my hands :'( To conclude, here is my advice: if you buy it for creative pictures which give you time to create your composition and shut whenever you feel like, at that price it's the best choice. You might get better with a Zeiss… ? But I don't have any gold teeth to sell! ; ) But if you want to shoot events like dance, sports or get clear wildlife pictures, I wouldn't say it's useless, but not suitable at all... Without autofocus, you waste lots of pictures. Apart from all what I said, this lens can be a real good investment because without autofocus or stabilizer (and if you do not let it drop or bang it ;), then you should keep it for years without any breakdown ;)

Pros: Brightness, resolution, precision focus ring, F2!!, cost, build quality, solidity!

Cons: Weight... Executioner if he weighs..

Opinion: A brick! But a very nice brick:) It weighs a lot but what about... Just for this in the end you have well clear how solid and well "present" in the hands this magical and economical glass by Samyang bought on E-Infinity at 360 euros, a price from nothing... Although it is a MF and does not have anything electronic.. Definitely worth more! Recommended for those like me do not do problems to wink in the viewfinder to see if you're focusing or not.. :) But just use the highlight feature of the focus area and away.. I use it with Sony A7R2 but also on APSC a6000 which turns it into a 200F2!! Certainly lacks stabilization but for some shots is not a problem..

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Heavy weight, footprint, has no autofocus

Opinion: A splendid lens, with a striking and superabundant sharpness already at full aperture, perhaps even an excessive hair in the portrait. With the magnification and contour effect of Sony focuses with extreme precision in a moment; The focus ring is activated with great precision and offers the right resistance, as well as the diaphragm ring. The tone and colour rendition is extremely faithful, especially for the skin, the fuzzy is very creamy and pleasant to all the openings in which it is visible. Cons are the lack of autofocus, its being cumbersome and heavy, the focal perhaps slightly too long for portraits that forces you to do two or three steps back for those accustomed to medium tele under 100mm. Attention to flare: Use the hood supplied and do not directly frame light sources. Ultimately it is a great lens for laid and landscapes, less obviously for photos on the fly. The price is ridiculous compared to the performance offered.

Pros: sharpness, bokeh at f/2 aperture stop, many collars, fluidity, resistance to flare, no chromatic aberrations, almost no distortion. minimum focus distance struck (manages to focus even less than 80 cm!)

Cons: square 2, over f/Bokeh at every aperture. pronounced vignetting. any kind of stabilization (pros/cons). great lens mirrorless species. absence of tripod ring series

Opinion: Superb lens, excellent. No real flaw found. The sharpness at room temperature is astounding, even at 2.8 reaches its peak, amazing indeed. The fact that both manual makes me prefer even corresponding AF, both for my photographic style that for total control that is exercised in manual about this beast, suitable for photo cutlery and studied. PDC millimetric at f/2 If the pupil a subject slightly listing is in focus, the rest of the eye is not perfectly accurate, fluid, Nuts ... nothing to do with little brother 14 mm. Intense colors and precise. Proper weight to the lens. Being a 135 would require stabilization already at slower speeds to 1/200 to get still images without monopod; It would be appropriate to use a camera with integrated stabilizer. On sony a7 seems a real monster, with the lens hood attached does not go unnoticed even if you want it. A lens is really impressive, I feel the need to always hold when I shoot so as not to damage the hooks of the camera; the lens alone weighs nearly twice the body. The samyang doesn't produce the tripod ring, impossible to find a suitable replacement, better have it print in 3D with a small project. The bokeh at f/2 is gorgeous, other faceted shape and unfortunately no longer focal round, sin.

Pros: Construction, weight, lens hood, lens aperture, focus, fluidity nuts, sharpness

Cons: the half hour needed to get used to the manual

Opinion: A sumptuous lens. Nothing to envy the noble Canon 135 that I had and loved, but more than double the costs. Just tried it, the goal threw me and displaced, as I was accustomed to autofocus. But then ... it was like descending from modern fully electronic car that does not make you neither skid nor drifting, and hop on a car true, no frills, where everything is left to your control. Rediscover the pleasure of regular time and diaphragm, on 5DMarkIII there is not even the confirmation of focus, but my first thirty shots I've thrown away only a small part. Has an incredibly creamy focus, clarity than on a lens in this price range would be unimaginable. Obviously forget action photography, this is a peaceful purpose, possibly from portraits on the stand, bright and solid as a rock. The next purchase? Brother 100mm Macro.
