      Comments about Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens for Canon:

      Awesome lens no matter which branded version you get. Especially at this price. Yes, it's all manual. I've seen a lot of people say that will limit it to shooting video but I strongly disagree. Photographers shot for a very long time without auto focus. It's not difficult to nail the focus once you get a feel for the lens. That said, if you live by your AF then you would probably hate this lens.

      The lens is built solid, is very sharp and has great contrast with very little CA. If you want Canon L series optical quality but have no hope of affording the L series 85 this may be a good lens for you.

      Comments about Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical Lens for Canon:

      I use this lens for some portrait work as a photographer but mainly i use it for film! For me, this is where it shines. Its fully manual so dont expect any auto focus for it! I love how smooth the focus ring is, its quite stiff which makes for some good pull focus shots when filming. Build quality is great, not what you would expect from something in this price range its solid and quite heavy (in a good way).

      For any budding photographer or indi film maker this is a great little lens!
