Pros:Fabulous optical quality, build quality and overall strength, price
Cons:Autofocus not too responsive in afc with Sonya7II
Opinion:Fabulous optics, of the right size and that gives great images. Particularly applause for the resistance! Alas I fell from about 1.5 feet without caps, slamming a point of the attack on tiles not really soft. I gave it to her, and she didn't suffer in the slightest. Untouched glass, always perfect focus and no variation. I was sure it went horribly well, but I was still amazed.
Pros:Fuzzy Creamy (Canon type 1.2), price/performance ratio, beautiful colors
Cons:AF noisy and sometimes uncertain but nothing exaggeratedly serious
Opinion:I have owned and then sold this lens (but I will buy back soon because I like it too) and I was very satisfied, I came from the Sony 50mm f 1.8 Economical and the difference was abysmal, well built and solid, lens hood supplied, AF noisy yes, but precise. At 1.4 (at least my model) was very very sharp! Beautiful blurry, very creamy and warm (as I like) and beautiful rendition of colors and complexion, overall for what you pay (340 euros used) is worth having it!
Pros:Solid construction, Creamy bokeh, great sharpness, price
Cons:Af a bit noisy, weight but it is still a 1.4
Opinion:I'm using it recently, but I have to admit that it is a little gem, now I do not know in comparison with the Zeiss that alas I have never tried, but it has a really very high optical quality. On Sony A7R2 returns a nice file, sharp already from 2.8, slightly softer to 1.4 but with a really nice and creamy bokeh. The AF is a bit noisy and not particularly fast but sufficient for most uses, it does not seem suitable for dynamic sports, on the other hand the focal would hardly use for that purpose. At this price you find yourself a really beautiful, well built and high quality optical lens. Obviously the weight is a weak point, but it is still a 1.4.
Pros:Equal to the Zeiss if not better as optical quality
Opinion:An incredible lens, impossible to ask for more from a optics of about €500. It has superb image quality, it is not comparable to the Zeiss not because it is poorer, but simply because "different". It has a more creamy bokeh, we could define more "artistic" than the Zeiss. Obviously has some functionality in less than the latter, such as the various keys on the body and the aperture ring declickabile very convenient. Loses in sharpness but the differences are appreciable only with the sensor 42mpx with extreme crop, on 24mpx are identical. Unfortunately only huge downside is the AF really noisy. It is at the edge of the annoying if used indoors, and absolutely to avoid in contexts where the silence is required. Another big problem is the fact that the MAF is electronic, so even using in manual the Ride ring by wire (very precise compared to a classic) there is the annoying noise of the internal mechanisms. It is therefore the question of advising it or not with respect to the Zeiss, which I find unfortunately overcrowded (although it is a virtually perfect optics). Make your considerations but do not plan to buy the Zeiss for image quality, but for the AF well more usable in working contexts. PS: Note how this lens actually is a 1.2 F and not F 1.4. It seems absurd, but compared with the Zeiss is a more creamy bokeh and a greater light transmission.
Cons:At times, the f (The species af-c) is not very fast - Slightly Noisy, but I okay
Opinion:Originally I wanted to take the optical Sony Zeiss Planar T * 50mm /f1.4. But it costs much more. So I at the Samyang 50mm f1.4 for my Sony Alpha A7SII. I 'amazing perspective, I use a little for everything (especially in street art photography, I do not know if I have written well). The lens quality is impressive, it's not like the zeiss sony, however, the Samyang, is not a view that is just beautiful to see. Everything works great. Perhaps the only fault, it is the autofocus, especially in AF-C, is a slow pelino. But it is the noise of the optical engine is a bit noisy (something when register, is felt), but that's okay. I highly recommend it. Rate 9
