Samyang 35mm f/1.4 II lens at BHphoto (Click on right here).
SonyAlphaBlog examined the brand new Samyang 35mm II lens and concluded:
The Samyang is priced at 700 euros vs 830 euros for the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG DN which is a lot better in time period of sharpness , has an actual aperture ring and a greater AF for topics in actions. I see due to this fact no cause to purchase the Samyang 35 until for video due to its low focus respiration
If the worth goes all the way down to 450-500 then it will likely be a superb value for the performances. Additionally should you don’t want the f1.4 the Samyang 35mm F1.8 provides higher performances (higher sharpness) for 400 euros in a extra compact and far lighter format
In time period of greatest 35mm The Sigma and Sony are glorious and in 80% of the case you can’t distinguish them , all of them have glorious sharpness, clean background blur, glorious bokeh balls, colour rendering ….
