Samyang 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EF mount Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens is a prime standard wide-angle lens designed for both full-frame and APS-C sized sensors; when used with an APS-C sensor the 35mm-equivalent focal length is 56mm. It is well-suited to working in a variety of situations ranging from landscape to portraiture. Its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture is further beneficial to working in low-light conditions and for greater control over selective focus and shallow depth of field effects.

Two high refractive index elements and one aspherical element have been incorporated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations in order to produce sharper images. A UMC coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for improved light transmission and more contrast-rich imagery.

When used with full-frame image sensors, this lens' wide-angle perspective is well-suited to use in a broad array of conditions. When used with APS-C-sized sensors, this 56mm equivalent standard prime lens provides a similar field of view to normal vision.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and provides greater control over focus placement for shallow depth of field applications.
Two high refractive index elements and one aspherical element reduce chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and clarity.
UMC coating improves light transmission and suppresses lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich, color-neutral images.

    Samyang 35mm f/1.4 reviews

    35mm f/1.4 AS UMC Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp, Sharp, SHARP!!! If you don't mind everything that is manual on this lens, GET IT!! It is the best 35mm F/1.4 lens out there! It's beats both the Canon and Nikon in terms of sharpness. You get more than what you pay for!! ;)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens but This is a great lens. I find that I love using it because of its 1.4 maximum aperture that allows me to use it for low-light situations. However, at 1.4, you have to be very calculating about the area you want in focus, because that depth of field is indeed shallow. I can't even compute how much but less than a pinky finger's thickness is right, probably a fraction of that. I purchased it because of its affordable price-point. However, I am returning it because it has opened my eyes to other f1.4 lenses that offer autofocus. Thank you, Samyang, for this opportunity - your product is a gateway for me to the world of fast lenses. I love the professional look this lens has offered me (shallow DoF, high-level detail from having a low maximum aperture, and overall excellent image-making quality). Only cons would be the manual-only focusing ability and the fact that the plastic rear end cap scratched easily, making me question the quality of the lens barrel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value lens - great image qualify Really great lens as far as image quality is concerned, and a great value. This is my first fully manual lens, and I enjoy the novelty of setting the aperture and focus manually. The focus ring is a joy to use - it's very smooth and has a long range of movement. The lens body comes painted with a random textured pattern of small droplet-like bumps that I wasn't fond of at first, but maybe it will increase grip and be useful. The lens is a little large. I'd prefer a 35mm that had a flatter profile, but not if it means sacrificing image quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable for the price, but... In 2014, I bought the AE version of this lens as the first 35mm pairing for my Canon 6D. It quickly became my go-to lens for anything that didn't absolutely require AF. The bokeh quality, vignetting, and color rendition of this lens are unbelievable for such an affordable piece of glass. If this is near the top of your budget, buy this lens right now. Even with the manual focus and no stabilization, I'd rather shoot this lens over the plasticy, chromatic aberration-ridden Canon 35mm f/2 IS USM. Of course your own shooting conditions may make the Canon a better value with IS and AF, but for me, just walking around town or shooting posable scenes, this lens rocked. For a while that is.. A few weeks ago, I booked a trip for which I knew I wouldn't be able to comfortably hack it with my B+ manual focusing accuracy. Enter the champion, the legend, the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art. This Samyang blew me away two years ago, but the Sigma is in a league of it's own. I still have to tip my hat to Samyang for delivering such wonderful optics at such low prices. Not to mention the build quality feels better than lenses that cost twice as much. Samyang / Sigma Art sharpness, and chromatic aberration comparison image attached. The image speaks for itself. In the time that I've owned the Samyang, I'd guess I've taken around 16k-18k different photos through it. Different meaning re-focusing, so not including any exposure bracketing. 18k rotations of the focus ring is a lot I suppose, but I'd expect any decently made lens to be able to handle such a task without issue. The focus ring grip still looks brand new, and hasn't loosened on the barrel at all. I'm quite happy with that. However, the dampening mechanism has developed a crunch to it when focusing with any kind of speed. It's not a foreign debris issue either, it feels like the tolerances of the focus ring have loosened over time, resulting in a dampening slip. Unfortunately I can comment of the cost to repair this issue. I haven't had it repaired since the issue didn't affect focusing accuracy. The only other (superfluous) con to this lens I can think of is the omission of the red alignment dot on the barrel's exterior. Instead of the dot on the exterior of the lens, Samyang decided to imprint it into the face of the metal mount surface. Not a huge deal, but it's a bit awkward to look at the face of the mount and creep it toward the camera like you're looking for the remote under a couch or something. Coincidentally, one of three barrel screws in the exact spot the alignment dot would be on a Canon lens, I'm not sure if that gives any insight into why Samyang chose to move it from the normal position.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Avesome lens ! This lens is very sharp - love the quality for the $

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it I use it for film with my DSLR. Great image, great DOF, silent focus wheel, sturdy build. As it is fully manual it takes some getting used to but that is what I expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens i used this lens for video with my canon 7d the image looks sharp at f1.4 small dof very smooth manual focus ring for video its awesome... this lens is all manual so not for fast action photography but great for other projects its going to be on my camera all the time instead of my canon lenses because of the unique look of the f1.4 for a 35mm lens!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lens! It goes without saying this lens is the best lens and also the sharpest lens I've ever used so far. When I picked up this lens, honestly I didn't know much about Samyang's lenses except, i've heard of them from quite a few forums. But, now I that I've tried this lens, I'm so glad I made the choice, and it has become my favorite lens ever since. If you are puzzled to which lens to get, Samyang has its own website, so you can go take a look.
