A standard prime designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless digital cameras, this lens can also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 75mm equivalent focal length.

An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to individual elements in order to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and a neutral color balance.

Samyang AF 50mm f/1.4 Reviews

Quality is ok but it clicks and grinds when using with FX3

By Joey

I can't really complain about the quality but it sure sounds bad when it's attached to my FX3. Oddly enough, none of my other Prime Samyang lenses do this and it's only on the FX3. On the A7iv, it does not make the noise. Thankfully, it still works fine but waiting for the day where it no longer works.

This lens is fantastic. I love the image quality and the quick autofocus. It's not perfect, but it provides superb value and utility in a reasonable size. The AF motor makes noise, so buy it for stills, not video. Hopefully Samyang will make a new version with quiet autofocus. Note that I received the lens with outdated firmware. Plan to buy the Samyang Lens Station to update to the current firmware, which addresses some autofocus issue.

Great lens

Is it sharper than Canon 1.4?
Asked by: Thales
We are not aware of any specific tasting comparing this lens to the Canon 50mm F/1.4/ However, this Samyang lens is designed for use with Sony E-Mount Cameras. It would be a much better choice than the Canon 50mm F/1.4 as that lens would require an adapter to work on a E-Mount camera.

question

how to do up the new fireware for this lens?
Asked by: Gary
There is a seperate lens “station” that docks the lens and allows to attach to computer for firmware upgrades. The dock needs to be purchased seperately.
