Opinion:Purchased at a price on Amazon, for the amateur use I make of it I consider it an excellent purchase. Light, very useful for me when I want to go around light until night. Its brightness makes it a good purchase for 360-degree use when traveling. The bezel is actually a bit too light, but I personally do not use it, so it is not a defect to report for me. Of course the materials are not the same as my Sony 24-105, probably even the image sharpness is not quite the same, but considering the price I do not see any contraindication to have it in your backpack.
Pros:Weight/size, AF, overall yield, quality/price
Cons:The ring that commands the diaphragms does not convince me
Opinion:Taken a few months ago to replace the Sigma Art 35 f/1.4 I must say that I was 100% satisfied, aperture aside does not make me regret the beast in anything, the af is better than the Sigma, it is incredibly light, sharp and with a nice blurry. The only defect I found is that, if you wanted to take advantage of the programmable ring, there is a high risk that it will move unintentionally, in the end in fact I use it little.
Pros:210g weight and 300 euros import. Excellent optical performance. AF never uncertain. Minimal pleasant look.
Cons:A little bit of chromatic aberrations, cheap touch materials, 0.29m of minimal focus, Samyang lampsheds can't see them...
Opinion:I love this new Samyang line. I flanked this lens to the big brother the 75mm. Many of the considerations are practically the same as I reported in previous opinions: Good packaging, a feeling of very cheap materials, a very pleasant minimalist look and aggressive import price around 300 euros. It is a lens that I mainly use for the set portrait and architectural compositions. I therefore needed a very light and contained lens to be side by side in the bag with other fixed, and very performing ta. Of course, there are some compromises at this price. It suffers a little bit from chromatic aberrations that can be easily eliminated in posts and at TA up to f4 the image at the edges is not really very sharp. Then it takes off and settles on a very good result. The distortion is also really contained. It's a type of lens that I could also use for TA-set macros but 0.29m of minimal focus isn't exactly optimal for my kind of shots, a 0.20 would have been great. In the portrait, however, I find it as for the older brother, excellent. Creamy bokeh and sharp beautiful image for almost the entire frame already from f1.8. Responsive AF and eye detection always perfect. Of the feature of commanding the focus ring (which, moreover, has an excellent response in manual as for the 75mm) for the iris opening, personally, I care very little. It should be further customizable with the dock. This 35mm belongs to one of the most successful lines of economic optics in recent years. and with the 24mm coming up you can create a respectfully respecting set kit.
Pros:Compact and light, good construction, lampshade and bag included. Sharpness, VERY good AF, colors
Cons:f/1.8 slightly "dark" than the Sony G f/1.8 equivalent
Opinion:Recently taken to conplex a kit of small lenses, I was very satisfied, the sharpness is very high, good bokeh and colors I think are quite neutral. For now I have not found anything particularly negative. The price is adequate even if it is not exactly cheap, but certainly less than the Sony equivalent. I did a brief comparison with the Sony 35mm f/1.8 G. The only thing I noticed is that on equal pay of diaphragms and exposure, the times on Sony are faster. F/4 is equivalent, it means or that it has more vignette, or its transmission is slightly lower. I don't get it. The colors satisfy me, I find them almost equivalent to Sony, even the sharpness is on par in my opinion. There is a gallery with the comparative https://www.juzaphoto.com/me.php?pg=302380&l=it
