Samyang 35mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC Lens Review

 

This manual focus wide angle lens, offers a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture for a budget price of around £380, Gary Wolstenholme reviews.

A fully-manual prime lens with a fast aperture at a bargain price

Bright aperture, build quality

Price.Very comfortable focus ring.Very sharp from f2 on both center and edge

Wide open (1.4) edge of frame is pretty soft.Large distortion.Some chromatic aberration
