Samyang 50mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

Utilizing a "normal" field of view and a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, the 50mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Sony E from Samyang is optimized for effective low light shooting, fast shutter speed capture and shallow depth of field control. It is compatible with full frame cameras and when used on cameras with an APS-C format sensor its 35mm focal length equivalence is 75mm.

The optical design of the lens consists of 9 elements in 6 groups including one hybrid aspherical element and one aspherical element to reduce chromatic aberrations. Also, lens elements are coated with an Ultra Multi-Coating to improve light transmission and minimize flare and ghosting. Eight diaphragm blades create a circular aperture for more attractive out-of-focus highlights.

As a manual focus and manual aperture lens, it provides a rubberized focus ring and clear aperture, distance and depth of field markings. Additionally, an included petal shape lens hood blocks unwanted light and protects the lens.

Standard length prime lens for full frame cameras, also compatible with DX format cameras on which it has a 35mm focal length equivalence of 75mm

    Samyang 50mm f/1.4 reviews

    50mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Sony E is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome All Around Lens This lens is all around extremely good for the price. The build quality is quite good and the build feels very nice, not cheap like some of the lower end Sony lenses. Even though the lens is manual focus, it is extremely easy to use on the a7. An AF version is also available, but I stuck with the MF because it was cheaper. The image quality is really great and very sharp. There was very little vignetting and rarely any chromatic aberration, which I only saw a few times while shooting at F1.4. The low aperture allows for really great photos and truly makes this lens a perfect multipurpose lens to bring on vacations and photography adventures. Ultimately, I would definitely recommend this lens and for the super cheap price at B&H, it can't be beat by any overpriced Zeiss lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pleasant surprise This is the first manual lens I own. I use this on my Sony A7Rii and having a good time using this lens so far. I'm a novice level shooter and have been using AF lenses. Still practicing to get better in manual mode but I'm enjoying the process. It's slower than AF but it feels rewarding. I love the focusing ring on this lens, it's buttery smooth. The aperture ring has clicks on it which I think it nice to have. I've been trying to shoot in the dark with this lens at 6400 ISO and the pictures turned out much sharper than I expected. I use Focus peaking and Magnifier and the pictures look like I shot them in a well-lit place. The bokeh is buttery smooth!! This being my first FF manual lens, I didn't want to spend big $$ on big brand names and I'm glad I bought this lens. The sharpness on this lens is neck to neck with the Zeis AF 50mm. This one is a definite keeper. I'll try to upload some sample pictures when I have a chance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Lens This is my first lens, bought for the Sony A7S ii, and I'm pleased with it. It's cheapo, has a shallow depth of field, can open the aperture up wide for low-light shots, and isn't too zoomed in or out, hence its usability in diverse settings.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Came broken The lense itself came in great condition. But the sun shield that came with it was broken. The person who sent this out clearly didn't check if all items were in perfect shape. The lense itself I can highly recommend.
