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.

Very inexpensive; Excellent sharpness, even at f/1.4; Even better sharpness when stopped down a little; Low CA and distortion; Good build

Contrast suffers when shooting into the light

Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC


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

Bright aperture, build quality

Weak performance at wide aperture

Overall it is very difficult to characterise this lens. It is certainly a specialist optic on account of being manual-only, but it also looks and feels great. It's a bit heavy but you are getting an ultra-bright f/1.4 maximum aperture and...

Available in a range of mounts, and both Four Thirds and Samsung NX versions, the Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC is an attractive lens for CSC users wanting a fast prime.

I recommend this lens for everyone who want an ultra large aperture lens but don't want to spend too much money for it!

nicely damped focus ring- build quality very ok for that price- very good image quality above f2.8

a bit too large- not very contrasty at f1.4

Consumer review by:

Samyang 35 mm f/1.4 AS UMC


All the cons of this lens are present in other fast 35mm lenses that cost three times as much as this one. If you can live without auto focus - go for it. Very sharp from f2 and solidly built. Mind that f1.4 and f2.0 shallow depth of field makes it...

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
