Samyang 24mm f/1.4 Reviews

Best Astro Milkyway lens

By Chethan
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-04-19

This lens has been my go to lens for milky way capture and a bit of landscape. It’s sharp wide open f/1.4 sweet spot at f/2 with almost zero artifacts on the edges of the frame. Super sharp lens. If you are looking for best glass with lower price and obviously manual focus.. this is best to get.

Great buy!

Chose this lens for night sky photography, I am very pleased with this lens.

Twice defective, twice disappointing, twice returned

By Felipe O.
Rated 1 out of 5

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.

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.

Excellent lens when stepped down to f/1.8 for astro

By Skye

When used with a speed booster at f/1.4 indicated on the lens it can produce some nasty coma, I have not extensively tested this, but I have a few examples (there is a slim chance this is the speedbooster). Just be forewarned. Be careful when using this in extreme cold weather (-20 deg C), I had some deposition (frost) on the inside of the front element, solution: 2 days in a plastic bag with some silica beads water absorbed. this is no longer an issue. My copy of the lens focused ever so slightly past infinity, so take that into consideration if you plan to use this lens in the dark. Otherwise this is a spectacular astro lens, 4.5/5 recommended.

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.

The wait is over!

After working with (and loving) both Rokinon and Samyang lenses in the past (previously with the 85 1.4 & 35 1.4), I am happy to give the 24 1.4 a go on full-frame Nikon. While I have not yet run it through a full barrage of tests, preliminary results are fantastic. The reviews on external websites are on point - a little soft wide open (but I will hazard useable for my purposes) with nice edge to edge sharpness. Sufficiently sharp by F2.8. Nice out of focus rendering (something I very much appreciated with the 85 1.4). For sharpness, I've tested against a my 50mm 1.8g from Nikon (matched field of view) on a lens test chart and found the lens on par wide open (which surprised me). Very pleased with B&H's delivery.

Second lens a winner

The first lens had a soft focus, I couldn't get a good, sharp focus no matter what I did. Almost good enough to keep, but not as good as I expected from the reviews. B&H exchanged the lens even though I was a few days over the 30-day period - kudos to B&H once again. I bought the lens for astrophotography, but haven't had a chance yet to use it in that manner. I did shoot quite a few images to assess the image quality, due to the many reviews I read about lemons in the product stream. Test it if you buy it, and exchange it if it doesn't look good. Near as I can tell, and it was reinforced by inquiry, there's no discernible difference between this Samyang and the Rokinon except name and price. Lastly, since the lens for Nikon has a chip, you get good EXIF data, LR will recognize and use a lens profile once you tell LR the lens brand, and the camera's in-focus indicator works (at least it does on my D800E). Lens profiles are in ARC, but can be downloaded from Samyang's site too.

question

Does this lens have a bulbous front element? Or any elements which would make it unsuitable for wideangle portrait photography, or real estate photography, where everything needs to be straight? If not, and it is bulbous, does this lens have a Lightroom profile, which allows me to correct it? The manual aperture and such lead me to believe that it might not have the contacts necessary to even register in the .EXIF data.I do a fair bit of landscape, and in particular landscape portraiture.
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens is not bulbous. It is a fully manual lens and does not transfer .exif data.
