The Samyang 35mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Canon EF with geared, manual focus and aperture control rings, is optimized for digital cinematography. The aperture ring has been "de-clicked" for smooth iris pulls, and depth of field markings provide an essential aid to focus pullers. Optically, this lens is identical to the Samyang 35mm f/1.4, which is known for its excellent sharpness, contrast and bokeh.

A hybrid aspherical lens and multi-layer coating produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The 35mm lens focuses as close as 11.8" (30 cm) from the lens. A bayonet mount, petal-type lens hood is also included.

                  Great normal lens for the APS-C format. Great at low light photography and de-clicked aperture is great for video and focus throw is cinematic. Very nice octagonal bokeh. Nice build quality for the price. Absolute bargain at the price even for a still lens.

                    I'd tested it just a bit. It seams to be sharp, feels smooth, and well constructed (it is heavy). Nothing to complain about yet.

                        This is a very nice fast lens that I'm mating to a Canon 5Dm3 on a shoulder rig for 70% of the shots of an indie-feature film I'm currently working on. We are on a tight budget yet needed a cinematic look for the 5D. The Samyang fit our budget and has not disappointed. The focus gear works well with my follow-focus. There is a bit more drag than I prefer, which torques the mount, but is not annoying. The lens is very clear all the way to the edges of the full frame sensor. It blooms a bit during racking but that is aesthetically useful. The de-clicked iris control is also quite useful for doing some manual pulls. I recommend as a cost-effective option and will try the 85mm Samyang based on my satisfaction with this lens.

                                Comments about Samyang 35mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Canon EF:

                                On September 28th 2012 , having decided I wanted the Rokinon 35mm T/1.5 Cine Lens, I was disappointed to fine out that because of high demand it was on back order till October 16. Realizing this date might be pushed back further, I looked for an alternative way to get hold of one of these lens. If you are not aware, the manufacturer of this lens is Samyang who have rebranded their lenses for sale in different countries i.e. Rokinon being the rebranded name for these lenses in the USA. Out of curiosity, I decided to use only the name "Samyang" in B&H's search engine, and surprise, surprise, they had some for sale. Exactly the same lens, only the name Samyang on it instead of Rokinon. A B&H rep that I talked to chuckled when I pointed out to him that it probably was because most buyers wanted a more "American sounding name" on the lens rather than an oriental one, or perhaps they were unaware of the Samyang branded ones being available for sale, to which he agreed. So, having said that, if you are not concerned about having "Rokinon" on the lens, the chances are you can get one much quicker if you are prepared to have the name "Samyang" on the lens. In fact, there are those who are buying these Samyang lenses from Poland, just to have the original manufacturers name on the lens, i.e. "Samyang." Not that you may be to concerned now, because Oct 16th is just a few days away. Now I'm by no means an expert in the field of photography or videography, and I will not go into any technical details of the lens because there are many good reviews already written, so I will address what I feel may be some other relevant questions some of you may have concerning; A fully manual lens with on a modern Canon DSLR, and, Using it with Magic Lantern installed. I have a Canon T2i 550D with 18-55mm Kit Lens and Magic Lantern loaded on it. My main goal is to shoot video while at the same time, being able to shoot stills. While this lens can shoot remarkable stills, it is not suited for shooting events such as weddings etc simply because it is a fully manual lens, and thus would take to much time to set up resulting in possible missed shots. However, I feel this is an unbelievable price for a "Fast" high quality, Cine Lens. Some reviews are putting it very close to the class of lenses from Canon and Zeiss costing $3000 to $5000 My biggest question however was how it would perform with Magic Lantern, and, as a fully manual lens on a modern DSLR. I'd heard of many having problems with dark LCD screens, the final shot not being the same as what was seen on the LCD screen, inaccurate exposure, focusing problems, and features like Magic Lanterns Trap Focus not working because of the un-chipped lens etc. Well, I can tell you that I am in love with this lens. I've only had it about ten days, and while I did experience the dark LCD screen problem, it was resolved with the application of some settings in Magic Lantern. In my opinion, nailing focus is not difficult at all, especially with ML, and the aperture and focus rings on the lens barrel rotate smoothly. I think the de-clicked manual aperture is fantastic, and Trap Focus works perfectly, I feel that part of the fun involved in shooting is setting up the camera, therefore I am so excited with this lens that I am now waiting to buy the 85mm T/1.5 Cine Lens when it is released at the end of this month or the beginning of November. The photo version of this 85mm lens is reported to produce stunning images.
