New Samyang 35mm FE lens reviews by Daniel Gangur and Hanna Saba

Share


Samyang 35mm FE lens on preorder at BHphoto, Adorama

Daniel Gangur tested the lens and concludes:

This lens really suits my personal needs for small light weight option with excellent image quality, if you are after the same it really is a good option. I think I will be choosing this over the Sony/Zeiss on future adventures, I just can’t fault the image quality.
I think at the price of $499 AUD it will be a very popular lens and is very competitively priced given it’s excellent image quality and great focus performance.

Sony will launch the 135mm and a 400mm prime lens this summer. Will you buy them?

Share

Batis 135mm f/2.8 vs the Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 A-mount (CameraSize)

While we have to wait til fall to get the new A7III Summer is still going to be exciting with the launch of the new 135mm and 400mm FE lenses. I still have no 100% confirmation on the aperture but the 135mm is likely to get a f/1.8 aperture while the 400mm should be f/2.8.

I will definitely buy the new 135mm FE (I loved the A-mount Zeiss version). So the question for you is:

Which lens are you going to buy?
