Pros: Solid metal construction, sharpness already at TA, compact and light, AF fast and precise (at least for non-extreme use such as sport and action), bokeh

Cons: Evident vignetting up to f2.8, hard focus ring and little disabled, colors maybe not at the top

Opinion: Purchased for about a week this one of mine is an initial review because I couldn't thoroughly test the lens in all its features. I certainly appreciated the sharpness already very good at full opening and significantly improves from f2 to f2.8 where it is practically a blade. The worst defect is perhaps the evident vignetting at f 1.4 and partially resolved to f2, however easily solvable in post production. In general it is a great lens for what it costs, very recommended unless it is considered essential stabilization After trying it on the outside I add to the above that this lens returns a sharpness, a microcontrast and a truly exceptional incisiveness even starting from f1.4, with a truly remarkable three-dimensionality and blurr. The vignetting described above, although evident by photographing a white wall, in real conditions is really little noticeable and I consider it a fairly marginal defect. For what it costs it is absolutely to buy if you are looking for a specialist portrait lens.

Pros: Crisp, compact (compared to the competition), fast, cheap, beautiful to see

Cons: A slight yellow dominant

Opinion: After more than 10,000 shots and 20 Shooting made with this lens coupled with my Sony A7III I made a complete review on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDUugHu3snY It has practically only merits if we consider the price, today it is located little and worth much more than many... It doesn't get to the quality levels of SIGMA or even the Sony Gmaster 1.4 but if you want something more than the usual 1.8 this is for you.

Pros: Simply amazing: bokeh, lightning AF, colors, sharpness, contrast. Overall quality.

Cons: nothing to report, maybe a little clutter but you can't expect to have a featherweight. Don't miss the quality of the materials you "feel" with Sony GM... but you can't ask for everything!

Opinion: What about... spend 1/3 of the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM, but in the end you don't lose anything! I have long been undecided whether to take the Samyang 85/1.4 or (at the same price or almost) the Sony 85/1.8 or jump to the 85/1.4 GM. And i finally got it after seeing a couple of reviews online.... even though I was wary. After the first half hour, I fell in love with it. It's just a show! The AF is lightning fast, allows you not to regret the GM and never misses a beat (even in the pursuit of the subject). The colours are even more pleasing than Sony lenses: slightly canon-like, just warmer and more balanced than Sony lenses. The construction is (almost) professional lens. It weighs a little but doesn't make you regret even one of the grams that weighs. Let's understand: it still weighs much less than the 85/1.4 GM, but a little more than the Sony 85/1.8. Excellent sharpness already at TA. Obviously at f/2 it increases but at 1.4 it is still excellent! I use it on the A7R III (which is demanding!) and on the A9. I'm upset about that. About the bokeh: superb! I really like it. The only thing that really wants to be picky you have to say is that it does not return that feeling of "pro" optics that you can perceive with Sony GM optics. But let's remember that it costs 1/3. In short: if you want an 85/1.4 you can think of Samyang without having doubts about the characteristics and yield. The comparison with the Sigma does not hold: IT WEIGHS AND COSTS TWICE AS MUCH! The weight of an optics is one of the things I look at: transposrability depends on it and therefore the use that can be made of it.

Pros: Sharpness, responsive af, warm colors, great file quality, very creamy bokeh, good minimum focus distance.

Cons: For the cost no cons to highlight

Opinion: Very amazed by an underrated lens, it proves professional, in portraiture offers its best side, optics that when combined with the latest generation Sony from a nice satisfaction , interesting also on apsc , the use on the a6400 for a focal equivalent to a 135 mm f 2.2 specific for portraiture or cinophile photography , less expensive choice of a 200 f2.0 on ff.
