Samyang 85mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical IF Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras is a compact telephoto prime lens that provides a focal length equivalence of 170mm when used on Micro Four Thirds 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.

Telephoto prime lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 127.5mm when used on a Micro Four Thirds 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 Micro Four Thirds Mount Cameras is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lens! I bought this lens based on the reviews and the fact that I needed a high quality telephoto prime lens for my GH4. This lens has not disappointed and is FAR better than I had expected. The focus ring is super smooth and the image quality is SUPERB. I love the bokeh this lens produces. For the price, you really can't beat this lens. It's super solid and reminds me of my old Canon L series 200mm F2.8. What a value. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value - Cannot Be Beat for MFT For Micro Four Thirds cameras, you cannot beat the value of this lens for the price. There are no other native format lenses in this focal length. This lens is part of my collection of manual focus fast prime lenses. I have owned used legacy manual lenses (e.g., Canon, Nikon) that needed an adapter, and fast lenses (< f/2) get to be expensive. This Samyang (same as Rokinon) gives you at least one more stop, and sharp across the frame even wide open at f/1.4. I also had a 4/3 version of this lens that I sold because of the expense of the adapter. I like that this lens is all in one with no need for an adapter. Because this lens is made in many versions for different mounts, this MFT version is a bit on the long side, but that is the trade off for not needing an adapter. Another advantage on MFT is that this lens was designed to cover full frame, which, on MFT, provides improved sharpness at the edges for brighter apertures. This lens is well made - mostly metal and glass. The quality of the front cap and hood have been improved compared to the earlier one I owned. It is on the big and heavy side, but not much bigger or heavier than my other quality manual focus MFT Voigtlander lenses. This is the trade off for precision fast manual lenses. The controls (focus and aperture) are precise and easy to use. I noticed on this lens, just like the earlier one I owned, that the alignment of the eight aperture blades at smaller apertures is not all that symmetrical, but it does not appear to affect photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for Artistic video Good for artistic videography. Nice image quality, but you need to practice focusing and other stuffs for shooting. Everything is manual, it is fun though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, just beautiful. It is a fairly rigid lens with a very good construction so it feels very strong. It is a heavy lens, more than any other micro four thirds lens, so with my GH3 and Battery Grip makes a whole too heavy. Although I will see to it no problem. Manual focus makes it a little slow to shoot, also to be totally mechanic is a bit complicated, but it is something that is a matter of getting used to. Furthermore photos are super sharp and be as bright, helps a lot in low light and Bokeh, is incredibly beautiful. May become my favorite lens. ----------------------------------------------- Es un lente bastante rgido, con una construccin muy buena por lo que se siente muy fuerte. Es un lente pesado, ms que cualquier otro lente micro cuatro tercios, con lo que junto a mi GH3 y el Grip de la batera hacen que en conjunto pese demasiado. Aunque yo a eso no le veo ningn problema. El enfoque manual lo hace un poco lento a la hora de disparar, tambin al ser totalmente mecnico es un poco complicado, pero es algo que es cuestin de acostumbrarte. Por otro lado las fotos quedan sper ntidas y al ser tan luminoso, te ayuda mucho en condiciones de poca luz y el Bokeh, es increblemente hermoso. Puede llegar a ser mi lente preferido.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lens Use this lens with Gx7, so IBIS helps in hand holding and hand holding lens is not a problem. Lens is very sharp and fast so you might want to consider getting a neutral density filter to go with it.
    Date published: 2017-03-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for low light Almost no noise where the Pana 35-100 f/2.8 struggles. Great for any low light condition. Could be shaper, but with focus assist/external monitor you can do a good job.
