Samyang 24mm f/1.4 review

 

Samyang's old-school wideangle prime lens delivers thoroughly modern performance

Super-smooth focus ring ; Good overall image quality ; Value for money

Manual focus and exposure ; less sharp at very wide apertures ; some vignetting wide open

Apart from a lack of sharpness at very wide apertures, image quality is very convincing from this Samyang, making it very good value.

Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC review

 

When using such the shallow depth of field that an f/1.4 lens offers, a manual-focus-only lens is a good reminder of just how useful autofocus is. Even a skilled photographer will find that there are numerous occasions when the manual focus is ‘off' in...

Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC (EOS) - Full Format Review

 

It may be a bit embarrassing for the original manufacturers but the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC manages to produce a quality similar to its roughly double priced counterparts. Admittedly, the 24mm f/1.4 suffers from slightly lower contrast at large...

Samyang 24 mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC

 

The Korean company Samyang builds its market position slowly but successively. It seems to be a part of their very well-thought-out strategy. They offer manual lenses, most often with short focal lengths in which the lack of autofocus is the least...

very good image quality on stopping down the lens by 1.5 EV ; chromatic aberration well-controlled ; decent work against bright light ; well-corrected coma on APS-C/DX and smaller detectors

real aperture of the lens is much closer to f/1.8 than to f/1.4 or/and wrongconctruction of the diaphragm ; distortion level higher than in the case of its competitors ; slackened manual focus ring ; very high vignetting on full frame ; no contacts in...
