Samyang 24mm f/1.4 Reviews

Good for night-sky scenes

By Robert
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-04

I was surprised at the sharpness of this lens. While not perfect across the entire field - there's coma in stars around the edge of view - it's much better than my Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8. Stars focus tightly. Vignetting was minor at f/2, another plus.

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.

Great buy!

Twice defective, twice disappointing, twice returned

By Felipe O.
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2016-06-04

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.

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.

Excellent lens when stepped down to f/1.8 for astro

By Skye
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2019-01-10

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.

question

There is a special note for this product: Note! The Nikon AE version is also equipped with a microprocessor which enables setting the aperture from the camera and saves information on the focal length and the aperture value setting in Exif format. Does that mean that there is a version of this lense that does not include this microprocessor?
Asked by: Anonymous
This designation only refers to other mount versions of this lens; Nikon is the only mount for the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 lens that has the microprocessor chip (e.g. Canon, Pentax etc. do not).
