Comments about Samyang 24mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Canon EF-Mount:

Quite dissapointed by this lens. Pretty much everyone admits that this lens is "slightly" or "a little bit" soft up until 2.8, but I use it on a GH4 and a BMCC and it is really really WOEFULLY unusably soft at those speeds. Therefore don't consider this lens to be a fast sub f2 prime, you really need to think of it as an f3 prime.

I've heard reports that each lens is different so maybe I just got a dud out of the factory. 85mm is much nicer and I haven't had a chance to play with the 35mm

Good for the price, with a major issue

Comments about Samyang 24mm T1.5 Cine Lens for Canon EF-Mount:

The 24mm T1.5 Cine is a very well constructed lens, sturdy and weighty it feels solid and of high quality. The IQ produced is of a high standard but has a major drawback, the lens is soft wide open and only gets sharp at around f2.8.

Which negates the speed drawcard quite a bit.

Used within that limitation this is a very good lens at a very good price.

This lens was used on a Blackmagic Cinema Camera and a Canon 7D.
