Pros: Bokeh, sharpness, autofocus

Cons: Construction not at GM level (but costs half as much)

Opinion: I love this lens, I preferred it to the sony and sigma for the really creamy bokeh, it stays sharp even at full aperture. I haven't heard from anyone about the quality problems that other samyang lenses have, everyone who has tried or taken it speaks well of it. My favorite portrait lens, without a doubt. Used on A7c (crazy af) and on a7iii with a lot of satisfaction. It's not small, but it's in line with the 135. For the amount it costs it is a must have, for a stressful use I would opt for the gm. I carry it in my backpack almost all the time, it repays the weight with results. I also confirm that it tends a bit to warm colors I am going to amyang, but it can be solved in post with two clicks.

Pros: Sharpness already at 1.8, bokeh, AF on a7iii

Cons: weight, distortion

Opinion: I wanted a 135mm 1.8 with AF, and not wanting to spend much on Sigma or Sony GM I took advantage of a temporary offer on amazon to buy this Samyang of which there are excellent reviews on Youtube. With 800€ I took home a fantastic portrait optics. I especially love the bokeh and sharpness at all openings. I confirm the tendency to warm colors, but it can be corrected with two clicks. On a7iii autofocus very performing especially in AF-C. On affinity photo I had to create a profile to correct some distortion, but nothing striking. I recommend it!

Pros: A TA blade. Creamy bokeh. High performance AF (on A7IV). Custom buttons. Tropicalized.

Cons: The weight is felt. 82mm for good filters is quite an outlay.

Opinion: Third Samyang lens that is added to my Sony kit. It's curious but until a few years ago I hated this brand for the very poor optics it produced for Nikon and Canon. the quintessence of optical defects. Yet with the AF line they churned out an excellent 35mm and a superb 75mm, both taken at ridiculous prices. I waited for Amazon's Black Friday, a wonderful event to buy lenses of this house, taking it away for 769 euros. Opening the box I confess I expected a nice hard case as for the 35 and 75 but here the dimensions begin to be really important and such a package perhaps was not possible. But I notice a hood finally as God commands. Solid with precise engagement and with a nice rubber edge. After the terrible one of 75 it is already a good start. Even the invoice, although the barrel is made of plastic, is far from the cheap look of the younger brothers. Excellent to the touch the soft focus ring. Then I find a custom button to which I dedicated the AF / MF switch, the selector to switch the AF ring in the ring for the aperture, which I honestly do not use, and the selector for the MAF limit. Useful in studio portraiture sessions. Then there is a LED on the base of the mount which as I read indicates that the Astro-Focus mode during night shooting is easily identifiable. The first test I always perform is to check if the lens is off-center as the good Phillip Reeve teaches. Now in all honesty in the last 10 years with almost eighty lenses between Nikon, Sony, Sigma, Tamron and Samyang I have never found one completely out of phase. And this 135 is just perfect on all four corners. The sharpness test on urban environment is also crazy. At TA from edge to board you eat my Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2 closed at 5.6. And without any distortion. So I prepare a small portrait shooting set. An alpine road with beautiful orange larches of late autumn. And the warm light of sunset. It is in this type of full-length shots and full aperture that I love to use this focal length. And Samyang does not deny any of its potential. Creamy bokeh with a break between subject and background wonderful. None and I say no chromatic aberration. AF and Eye Detection beautiful reactive decidedly above average (thanks also to my fantastic A7IV) and a sharpness of the subject to TA remarkable. Maybe if I have to find the hair in the egg I expected a greater three-dimensionality, but equaling a Leica lens from 5000 euros would have been really outrageous ... :-) Is there any downside? The weight, 770 gr are not easy to balance without a battery grip. Having to work for whole days with important lenses is a fundamental accessory for me. The diameter. Good 82mm filters begin to have a price not really for all budgets. Ultimately a WONDERFUL lens, usable in various types of photography, from urban landscape and not to macro set (69 cm minimum maf) to the portrait set. Probably today the spearhead in the Samyang house. And one of the best I've ever worked with. And at 769 euros at Sony, letting it escape is a crime.

Pros: Cost. Sharpness. Weight.

Cons: Color a bit warm. High battery consumption. I believe solvable with future updates

Opinion: I tried a whole day... I had fun! Excellent three-dimensionality! It weighs less than GM. Fast AF. Considering great price bargain... Comparison with Sony GM you miss something on the AF. Still fast. Made video tests and Good. Silent. In the past I had legendary Canon 135mm F/2 this and exceeds a lot. It is normal considering the age. Blurred very soft and creamy. On Amazon Black Friday offer price of 769. Who makes portraits I think a very interesting lens

Pros: Sharpness, blurry, cost.

Cons: AF and chromatic shift towards yellowish.

Opinion: Taken by a couple of weeks. I waited to try it before writing this mini review without being conditioned by the euphoria of the novelty and the beauty of the first shots. Let's start with the external appearance. It is very solid, a bit squat given the size of the front lens, nice tactile sensation and generously sized hood and very precise attachment. Beautiful at the knurled ring of focus. I would call it quite elegant. The aperture ring and the AF/MF selector key are missing, but given the cost there would have been no hope for the opposite. Customizable button (I did not understand if from there you can enter the AF / MF, I have to inform myself). Two keys M1 and M2 (even here I did not understand the functions well). There is a selector for the excursion of the AF during the focusing. The AF a bit 'slow and uncertain, of the photos taken at the concert most of them were blurred but having a Sony A7RII I do not know how much you can charge to the lens. Blurred by scream. Excellent sharpness even at TA. If you do not want to spend so much on the Sony 135/1.8 the Samyang is the must have. I recommend it without reservation.
