Samyang 135mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

Work in low light and capture images with exceptional "bokeh" with the 135mm f/2.0 ED UMC Lens from Samyang, available here for Sony E mount full frame & APS-C cameras. This all-manual telephoto prime offers a flattering perspective well-suited to portraits and other sensitive subject matter, and the fast f/2.0 maximum aperture helps ensure the image will be bright and have an extremely shallow depth-of-field. Also, this lens features one extra-low dispersion element to reduce the impact of chromatic aberrations in the final image as well as an Ultra Multi-Coating to reduce flare and ghosting.

A large manual focus ring as well as a physical aperture ring are available on the lens barrel for making smooth, deliberate adjustments. Also, this lens has a minimum focus distance of 2.6' and a front filter thread diameter of 77mm. Assisting with smooth, pleasing out-of-focus elements is a circular 9-blade diaphragm. Additionally, it comes with a removable lens hood and a soft pouch.

Lens construction of 11 elements in 7 groups
Front filter thread is non-rotating for easier use with certain filters, such as circular polarizers and variable NDs

    Samyang 135mm f/2.0 reviews

    135mm f/2.0 ED UMC Lens for Sony E Mount is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! What a sharp lens! This is a great lens. Very sharp. I am able to deal with the manual focus without any problem. In fact, this lens has turned me into a manual focus advocate - I now manually focus many of my 'automatic' lenses. I always try to focus wide open, with the shallowest possible depth of field. My beef is that the diaphragm doesn't close itself down to a selected aperture when I release the shutter. My old film camera could do this in the 70's (yes, I'm an old fart) .. why can't the 'manual' lenses of today do it? In any event, this lens is worth the hassle and I would definitely buy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens - but you gotta love MF I bought this lens used and have used it for about a week. This is a great portrait length but i don't usually do much in the portrait realm. This has changed my feeling to 135mm lenses. I love this length and has great clarity and great contrast. I love shooting on old MF film cameras but i have been shooting my A7ii as of late with the 55mm, which is incredible but i haven't used it since i receive this lens. The 135mm is something i have to get used to but i have and fell in love. focus peaking has done wonders for the greatness of this lens and i couldn't be happier. If you are thinking about it and like MF get this lens before others, what you get for the price is incredible. This lens is massive, so buyer beware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Lens This might be the sharpest lens I have used on my A7RII's, shot wide-open, and I have shot all the FE lenses and most of the professional Canon L lenses, as well as a number of Leica lenses, on this camera. The sharpness is stunning! Also amazing is the nearly total lack of LoCA's and CA's. I wish it was autofocus, but I can live with the manual focus, given the great rewards of using the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful piece of glass I've always been a fan of Samyang glass, but would wait until reviews by others before I make my purchase. Well, this time I decided to get one first. Bought it from B&H in February 2015... I don't know why it's back on preorder now. Even with Focus Peaking, I sometimes miss crucial shots because FP isn't always entirely accurate. This makes candid shots and tracking moving subjects a bit difficult. However, when I have enough time, ooooh boy this lens shines! The focus ring is a bit stiffer than my Samyang 35mm. It makes minute focus adjustments more accurate in my opinion. Sharpness is definitely satisfactory (for me) and the out of focus blur is pleasant. The close MFD makes it great to shoot smaller animals, flowers up close; and the 135mm FL is great for pleasing subject/background separation. At times, I DO wish it had autofocus, like the Canon 135L, but at half the price, I really can't complain. The lens, along with the adapter made for the Sony E mount, makes this big and heavy. It's just as long (and about as heavy) as the Sony FE 70-200mm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still the best-corrected lens for your Sony camera The only native autofocus lens that can offer comparable subject isolation is the GM 85. I bought that lens as well, and it suffers from severe lateral chromatic aberration and spherical aberration wide open. The Samyang is tack sharp wide open (perhaps slightly softer at minimum focus distance, which is very very close) and practically apochromatic. It competes with the Zeiss 135/2, which some consider the ultimate portrait lens. This lens is a DSLR design, which means its immense weight is cantilevered far in front of the lens mount, just as if you had adapted the F-Mount version. The focusing ring is a bit sticky, which can make perfect focus hard to nail. (Depth of field is literally paper-thin wide open at minimum focus distance.) The color of the glass seems to be warmer than neutral, so you'll have to shoot raw and correct in post. And frankly, the 135/2 length/aperture is less versatile than 85/1.4. (It's slower, forces you to stand very far back, and doesn't offer you much depth of field, even stopped down.) Despite the flaws, I never considered returning this lens. It's leagues better than either of my Batis lenses in terms of technical performance, and blows the GM 85 out of the water wide open.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best lens for the money fantastically sharp lens for not much money. Has great contrast and has a nice focus ring with solid aperture clicks. I was worried about a manual focus lens but this lens makes me forget every time i shoot with it. Great great great but a bit large and heavy.
    Date published: 2015-10-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 135mm Lens The Samyang 135mm f/2 lens is very sharp and has nice bokeh, exactly why I purchased it. It is MF only and does not have OIS so the exposure triangle must be addressed every time, but the results are outstanding.
