Tag Archives: Samyang 35mm


Starting at 6:00am this morning, there will be Amazon lightning deals in the Camera, Photo, and Video department. Lightning deals are special discount offers that run for a short time and new deals are thrown up just about every hour. Upcoming in the list are hard cases, backpacks, and bags, if anyone needs such. The most interesting item when browsing through the upcoming list of items, is the Rokinon 35mm F/1.4 Prime lens for Olympus, Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Pentax will soon receive a discounted price. A fast sharp lens that will work on both cropped and full frame Canon cameras, normally a a lens that runs about $450-500 dollars, will be on sale today (click here).

[Update] Deal is on right now and they dropped the price by $125 dollars. Huge discount for this lens we won't see again anytime soon. Choose the version you want, and then look to the right side to see if it still qualifies for the lightning deal price (click here)


Very few samples are online about Samyang's latest 35mm F/1.4 lens, but here's the one I was interested in from Vimeo member Didier Hartong. While a lens may look fine on a Canon 7D, it could look totally different on a Full Frame camera. This is a decent test of the Samyang on a Canon 5D Mark II. The basic consensus is beautiful bokeh, sharp at F/1.4, and little vignetting. Of course these lenses have no Autofocus or Focus confirmation (which some of us are already used to). I believe this lens is available in Canon, Four-thirds, Nikon, Pentax, Samsung NX, and KM/Sony mounts. Absolutely still nothing via Amazon, the only place to find is on the auction site.
