Pros: excellent value for money, solid construction, quite compact and lightweight, good image quality, mind-blowing bokeh

Cons: no optical stabilizer, annoying manual focus (at least early days), poor quality of the hood and lens cover cap

Opinion: the AF 85mm f/1.4 Samyang EF (Canon version) is one of the best lenses a low-budget photoamator can buy, definitely a must-have for portrait painters. Aesthetic optics are very essential, but the construction quality and solidity strike immediately. Although quite small in size, the ergonomics are excellent, too bad only that Samyang wanted to save on lampsheds and lens covers, both of very questionable construction quality. In my opinion, the choice of the 77mm filter diameter is excellent, corresponding to that of many Canon L-series lenses that could ideally be accompanied by quality. As you might expect from a portrait lens with f/1.4 opening, the bokeh is excellent and the out-of-focus areas very soft, as if to create study backdrops: the nine slats make very well at maximum opening. There is no significant distortion for a purely portraiture lens, but if it is used for architectural purposes, or where you still feel the need, it is correctable by setting the appropriate Photoshop tool to the +0.3 factor. The vignetting is quite visible but is already disappearing by closing the diaphragm to f/2.8, not forgetting that the drop in brightness at the edges is one of the aspects most easily corrected in post production. Autofocus uses an ultrasonic linear AF motor that is quite fast and quiet, although its accuracy is a function of the quality with which the single model was assembled: fortunately I have a successful one, but there are cases of front/back focus; for manual focus the lens has a "focus-by-wire" system similar to Canon's STM.

Pros: material quality, very light, good sharpness from f2 onwards, good containment of reflections

Cons: fire point difficulty in MF, chromatic aberrations in the out-of-focus, not finely calibrated for AF (at least my model had a constabable FF), vignetting (structural with this type of lens).

Opinion: light (aluminum) but solid, compact, beautiful to see and good finishes. Autofocus fast enough, critical to use in mf for the very low depth of field note. As soon as I took I encountered a serious front focus problem that I partially corrected in the car. I say partially because a "pelino" could still be corrected but the calibration scale had reached its maximum. Since many report ff and bf problems for this manufacturer I would not like that, in addition to the wide tolerances of Asian production, there was not a kind of "desired defect" in order to be able to sell dock stations as well. Focus ring maybe too smooth. I'd like to be more clutched. in backlight I do not notice annoying reflections despite having a very generous frontal lens. However, leave the lampshed mounted to defend the lens. The defects are typical of an unbleached light optics: the well-known vignetting at full opening, at least for me, is quite annoying but countervailable of clean room. The sharpness at f 1.4 is not much but at f 1.8 it already improves. From f 2 onwards nothing to say. A sore point are the chromatic aberrations, also these partially correctible: at f 1.4, radially and in the backlight parts, they are quite evident. They decrease proportionally to the closing of the diaphragm. Good lampshed, discreet packaging. A good purchase if bought not at full price. Excellent QP ratio when taken used. Update: Compared for a full day to the glorious old focal pari SIGMA, both freehand and stand trials. basically they have the same resolving power at the center. same incisiveness at all openings, both in the center and you have edges. the sigma has less, but of very little, vignetting and in any case still manageable in post production. the sigma, to the touch, is more solid, heavier and longer. the maf ring is direct grip while in the samyang it is electro-assassist (I do not like it but they are tastes). The samy beats the sigma in fire speed. the latter struggles to focus in low light conditions. chapter apart from chromatic aberrations: I had never used lenses so large. ac are proportionate to the size of the lenses. this defect is identical, in quantity, in both optics. I repeat that for SLRs, in absences of fire assistance aids, the point of fire remains really difficult to find.
