Samyang 85mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical IF Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras is a compact telephoto prime lens that is compatible with both full frame and APS-C formats and provides a focal length equivalence of 127.5mm when used on Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless digital cameras. The fast, bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is effective in low light situations and provides shallow depth of field control.

This manual focus and manual exposure lens features an internal focusing mechanism that maintains the overall lens length during focusing and does not rotate the front of the lens, making it well-suited for use with polarizers or graduated neutral density filters.

One aspherical element is incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and produce imagery with a degree of sharpness and clarity. A UMC multi-coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich images.

The lens is compatible with full frame and APS-C format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras.
Telephoto prime lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 127.5mm when used on a Sony E-mount APS-C mirrorless digital camera.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and provides greater control over focusing for selective focus and shallow depth of field imagery.
One aspherical element has been integrated into the lens' design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and contribute to high overall sharpness.
UMC multi-coating minimizes lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery.
Manual focus design incorporates an internal focusing mechanism that maintains the overall length of the lens when focusing.
Eight-blade rounded diaphragm produces an aesthetic out-of-focus quality that is well suited to shallow depth of field applications.

    Samyang 85mm f/1.4 reviews

    85mm f/1.4 Aspherical IF Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Glass and Beautiful results The product exceeded my expectations with its quality and sharpness. After using my 50mm f/1.4 I figured it was time to get a true portrait lens and I wanted one with a shallow focus as well. So I searched and found this perfect fit. I enjoy it and love my results. It is very sharp with very minimal chromatic aberration. There is also hardly any flare, which is nice at times but not always a positive thing with certain art styles. I would definitely recommend having this Manual focus lens as part of your portrait lenses. Excellent purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portrait lens I use this lens on the Sony A6000. This is an amazing lens that gives you professional and sharp focused portrait photo's a very nice background bokeh. Works excellent in evening shots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent lens for mirrorless This lens is a gem. Literally fell in love with it on the first shoot I did. I had some reservations about using a manual lens on a mirrorless but the focus peaking on the Sony A6300 solves it. Considering how expensive Sony mirrorless lenses are, I would definitelt recommend getting this lens as an inexpensive but great alternative.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value Great image and build quality for the price. The lens hood snaps on solidly and I never have to worry about it falling off. My only gripe is that the focus ring, while well dampened, doesn't always feel very smooth at times.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality lens. Shooting with this lens on a Sony A6500 is quite a pleasant experience for both video and photo work. While it is not the sharpest lens I've ever used it can achieve good results at f/1.4 and very sharp images at f/5.6. If you're looking for a fast, reasonably sharp, prime telephoto lens then this will get the job done. Bear in mind you get what you pay for, but it's solidly built, and can achieve results on par with more expensive lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lens for the price Nice Bokeh. Purple edge is visible towards bright sources. But it is ok for the price

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenominal! I use this product with my Sony NEX VG20 and it gives this little camcorder big time images. The build on this lens is very solid which feels great in your hands, the focus is very smooth and the f 1.4 Aperture looks great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy. Great Buy. Great Buy. Focus is soft which can be used to great advantage. I love the glow I get with portraits.
