Samyang announced a new 35mm f/1.4 manual lens that will also be available for Alpha-mount. The lens should be available this month for 389 Euro. The lens is very interesting because 1) it is a full frame lens 2) because Samyang is known for his high quality lenses!
You don’t believe the Samyang is a good lens? Photozone tested two lenses on a Canon full frame camera. The Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED (Click here to read the review) and the Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical (Click here to read the review). The only thing you miss on those lenses is autofocus. If you don’t want to spend $1,369.00 for the Sony 35mm f/1.4 (Click here to see that lens on Amazon) the Samyang could be an interesting alternative.
All Samyang lenses can be found on eBay under seven different brand names (Click on it to see all lenses from the specific brand):[shoplink 5759]Samyang[/shoplink] [shoplink 5755]Walimex[/shoplink] [shoplink 5756]Rokinon[/shoplink] (Also availbale on Amazon.com)
