Pros: nitidezza pazzesca, costruzione solida, ghiera messa a fuoco morbida e piacevole
Cons: peso, problemi con maf all'infinito, circa 3 stop di vignettatura ad f1.4
Opinion: ho strausato il samyang 35mm e ormai siamo inseparabili. usato sulla nikon d800 con i suoi 36mpx mostra a pieno la sua nitidezza. i problemi sono il peso, che a volte lasciano da pensare se portarlo con sé o no in occasione di trasferte, l'imprecisione della conferma della messa a fuoco sotto f4. mi spiego, la profondità di campo è così poca che sotto quelle focali (anche a distanze non eccessivamente ravvicinate) la conferma risulta grossolana e poco precisa. per il resto sono un grande appassionato di ottiche fisse, ed ormai ho fatto il callo con il fuoco manuale, e questa lente vale ogni euro speso.

Opinion: I waited more than 1 year to review it, to know it better especially with regard to focusing as it is a manual focus lens and large aperture: good brightness in the viewfinder, less well the depth of field, very small, at the most open apertures. The compromise? make use of the electronic rangefinder of modern camera bodies or easily calculate the hyperfocal thanks to the notches of the pdc marked on the tube or, in extreme, take two slightly staggered photos of the same subject ... On my Nikon D810, this lens communicates perfectly both for the adjustment of the apertures from the camera body, both for the transmission of exif data and also for the confirmation dot of the m.a.f. The lens is really important with its 111mm in length, 660 gr in weight and the front lens with 77mm filter. This is due to its complex optical scheme that includes 12 lenses (1 asf. and 2 high refr.) in 10 groups. The diaphragm varies from f.1,4 up to f.22, counts 8 lamellae and can be adjusted to 1/2 jerky steps. The minimum focusing distance is 30 cm, while infinity is after 3 meters. The barrel, well rubberized, measures 83 mm and makes a total excursion of 145 °. The dimensions increase even more when the bulky (but effective) hood is mounted, which fortunately can also be reassembled inverted. Two things are to be emphasized: the "buttery" rotation and without games of the barrel of m.a.f. and the three-dimensionality of the images (you notice it as soon as you frame). As always done, I will publish images without posts, but only converted from RAW to full resolution to JPEG with Nikon's Capture NX-D program. As for the Sharpness we have good results in the center already from F1.4 that improve significantly to f2 and find the maximum in the center at f3.2 and on the whole frame from f.4 up to f.5.6 . It is useless to close further if you do not need a greater p.d.c. The colors are excellent with a good micro-contrast and a slight tendency to warm tones. There are important chromatic aberrations (mainly magenta) especially on very reflective subjects and especially at the most open diaphragms and there is a slight barrel distortion. Note apart from the Bokeh that I find beautiful up to 5.6 and a bit '"crowded" by f.8, then obviously also depends on the subjects and their distance from the focused point ... The vignetting is noticeable up to f2.2 and then becomes negligible already from f.2.8. In summary I found this objective very valid even with some "mole" that can be removed with an adequate post-production especially in relation to its truly "popular" cost and also for the impeccable mechanical construction.
Opinion:I took this lens to make macro photos (mounted in reverse) and some photos with a blurry and fast shutter speed. So for the use I make of it I am more than satisfied and I would immediately make the purchase. In addition, the expenditure has been contained. Obviously for a more complete use, I would have preferred autofocus and stabilizer and probably I would have turned elsewhere, even spending more. In my opinion, as almost always happens, there is no absolute best product, but the most suitable for your needs.
Pros:Sharpness, blurry, railing comfort, size, value for money, build quality
Opinion:Unlike others I do not consider the size of the lens bulky (despite the weight). The generous focus ring is in fact the most comfortable you can mock, it flows slowly and allows you to better select the fire. The diaphragm ring is also comfortable and in the right position. The images he churns out are very sharp (even at full aperture), with pleasant colors; and you can have a good time with the bokeh. But it is not a lens for everyone. The absence of autofocus is both good and bad. He taught me a lot and I would recommend it to those who want to learn and be patient to sweat excellent results (for those who need quick shots I would suggest the sigma 35 art, but the price rises). I applaud the build quality. Mainly used on aps-c.
Pros:Sharpness, pleasant blur, soft focus, price, solidity
Opinion:This lens I really like though compared to the Sigma 35 art loses on all fronts, apart from the build quality in which it is probably better this. What about it? For what costs them all worth, I was amazed by the personality, has something indefinable that makes it enjoyable. At the manual kelp you get used to it right away and with Oppurtuno adapter ring can also be used on mirrorless having control over the mechanical diaphragms.
