    Samyang 24mm f/1.4 reviews

    24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC Wide-Angle Lens for Canon is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You do the quality control, at your own expense... This lens is very well regarded for night landscapes, and for fixed tripod wide-field astrophotography (for Milky Way images and such). According to many reviews, this lens offers great, if not the greatest low-light good optical performance for this, at relatively low cost. Relatively low cost and no hassle, yes, but only if you are among the apparently very few chosen ones that can get to the heavens (Milky Way and such) with a good working unit on the first purchase try. Plenty on-line reports and user reviews also testify for this. Still, I wanted to try my luck... Unfortunately, I got one of the bad ones, which I tested, and sadly had to return very promptly. Reason for return: Defective. Description: Optics appear to be misaligned, or decentered. Images of bright spots (stars, distant street-lamps) cannot come to focus, and show coma (distortion) even at the center of the frame at wide apertures, from f/1.4 up to f/2.8 and f/4. Image is unacceptably soft at these apertures, and not very good above that. Clearly, luck was not good for me, and it might be likewise for you too. So please, follow my advice: do your own quality control tests, right upon receiving this lens, because the manufacturer apparently passes the responsibility and the possible costs of all this testing on to you, the customer, at your own expense if you have to return, or exchange it. In this case, you will have to cover non-refundable and any extra delivery costs, and possibly loose your payment of also non-refundable custom fees, if like me, you live abroad. My real rating for this lens: zero stars; justly, because for me that is exactly the outcome: no stars, no astrophotography, which was my intended and sole purpose in purchasing this lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprised; a nice piece of of glasss of far I broke new ground with this purchase; buying a 3rd party lens. Well, not entirely true, I do have a vintage soviet lens but that's an entirely different purpose lens. My main interest is landscape, waterscape, night and some astrophotography, aurora borealis, nature, macro, some architecture, etc. For this body of work I only use Canon L lenses. I long wanted a specialized night glass and was deciding between the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and this 24mm f/1.4. I've tried the former before and I do have a 16mm lens already so i decided to go for speed instead of width. I cannot yet form a complete opnion about this product as I have not fully tested it under the light situations for which I acquired it. I've tried it on my kids and flowers around my house and gone out on 1 photo trip. I've also had it on my tripod taking various shots in order to determine whether this copy is decentered since this is according to some the main concern. I've done a lot of reading on this issue and some photogs seem to be of the opnion that the decentering issue is mainly related to to position of the lens and the focus point. I think my copy may be slightly out of focus on the right side but I have taken some test shots in which the both sides are tack sharp. So far inconclusive - still, this lens seems sharper alverall and in the corners than most wide zoom lenses i've owned. Most surprising is the colour rendition - absolutely gorgeous. Contrast and drawing is also beautiful and looks very organic, analog if you will. This is reminiscent of vintage lenses minus the usual imperfections. I've never owned a 24mm lens but I am also pleased to report that it is wider than I expected and I am fan of wide angle but I am yet to really try astrophotography. There is some chromatic aberration but it seems well controlled and easily manageable in post. Coma - not yet fully tested but according to most reviewers this suppose to be the strength of this lens. I was getting a really unsightly half-crescent glare shooting the moon fully open the other night but it improved when i stopped down. Usually, I expect a soft gradual light source when fully open so I was surprised to see this anomaly. Again, I need to shoot more to confirm whether this is a problem or just an anomaly of that particular composition. I was very supersized to get impressive and nicely rendered bokeh - I took some very interesting wide shots of my kids. Along the same lines; this is very close focusing lens so I could come very close to the subject and still focus which creates awesome effects especially with the great bokeh this lens produces. Speaking of which, this is where I really missed the AF. I did not buy this lens for a walkout every day shoot purpose but I quickly discovered I will be using it a lot more often than anticipated to shoot people, flowers and moving subjects since it draws and renders so nicely. However, the lack of AF and a chip makes it cumbersome to use in these situations. If it was chipped, only so I could get focus confirm, it would have been enough. Nikon users will be happy to have a chipped option and I would have gladly paid extra to get a focus confirm. I am not a wedding photog but I can see that the lack of this feature is a major drawback for weddings/events, possibly even unsaleable as a wedding lens or one that can be used to quickly focus and fire off crisp images with confidence and ease. This is really too bad because the bokeh, rendering, speed and this particular focal length could make an awesome wedding/event lens. I am seriously considering installing a chip myself. Construction: a lot of folks were raving about the construction of the Samyang lenses but when compared with my L-series Canon lenses it's not even close. Construction isn't bad and not really an issue but it does not feel like my other lenses. (The best constructed lens is my soviet made Hellios 44-2) Also, Samyang pays a lot less attention to fine detail and finish. Numbers and scales printed on the the lens look a little cheap; bit of a strange overprinting in one area. The look and feel of the materials is not even close to the Canon L-Series but it is OK. Where this lens is better mechanically than most my other lenses is the focusing ring - this thing is buttery smooth. A tad too much travel needed but the journey to focus is a pleasurable one. If I do not find any major issues this lens is a keeper. I would give 3.5 stars if i could but right now it's closer to 4. A few more things: Provided lens hood is a bit flimsy and does not hold too well. Pinch on lens cover is better than Canon. Considering all the glass involved in a f/1.4 24mm this lens is quite light and small. B&H service to Canada is AWESOME!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing! I LOVE THIS LENS! I am absolutely amazed with this lens. The quality of the photos are amazing, and it is sharp from edge to edge. Perfect for night photography, nightscapes, and astrophotography. It is manual focus, which is very difficult to use, especially for amateur photographers, like me. But when shooting stars, or night shots, manual focus is a must. This lens is perfect. It is very heavy, and it feels like a very high quality lens. It comes with a lens hood, as well and a nice bag to store it in. 10/10 would recommend this lens as a cheap alternative to the Canon 24mm F1.4.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice lens but not as good as expected I purchased this lens primarily for astro-imaging after acquiring the Bower 8mm and Samyang 85mm; both of which yield great stars edge-to-edge on an APS-C sensor. The 24mm lens is not as good BUT still usable if one doesn't mind knocking 10% off the edges... If is, however, a very nice portrait lens!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Twice defective, twice disappointing, twice returned This is a follow up of my other previous review. Reason for return: Defective. (Again...) Comment: This is the second sample of this lens that I am returning as defective. Optics are again misaligned or decentered. At the widest aperture f/1.4, and slightly less, but still at f/2.0 and f/2.8, images in the center of the frame show excessive and asymmetric halos towards one side of objects: to the left hand side for bright objects over dark background, right hand side for dark objects over bright. Also, at these wide apertures, optical distortions, noticeably coma, astigmatism, and bad focus, are severe on the right hand side of the frame, even on a 1.6x crop Canon APS-C sensor. The positive: B&H's return policy and handling, simply excelent. Many many thanks indeed. The negative: Samyang? (and co-brands carrying their products?) No, thanks. Not for me, never again. Trying to buy this lens has meant for me enormous frustration, and real loss of money: I have lost not refundable delivery fees, and not refundable customs fees, twice. In fact, I lost in this way an amount more than half the asking price for this product, and ended up with nothing, nothing at all. Except only perhaps for a bit more of hardly and very expensively acquired wisdom. Cheap quality products? Not really, not Samyang's. You have much better staying away. Do not buy.
