Samyang 300mm f/6.3 overview

  • 1Description

The silver Samyang Reflex 300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS Lens is a mirror lens designed specifically for use on Sony E mount cameras. The lens' Cassegrain design enables it to achieve a 450mm 35mm-equivalent focal length perspective within a compact and lightweight lens design that is significantly smaller than a traditional 300mm lens. It features a fixed f/6.3 aperture and manually focuses as closely as 2.95'.

One extra-low dispersion element and the inherent mirror construction of the lens work to eliminate chromatic aberrations while providing notable image sharpness and clarity. Furthermore, the UMC (Ultra Multi Coated) coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, lens flare and ghosting while also contributing to improved overall contrast.

Mirror lens designed specifically for Sony E mount cameras.
Catadioptric system with Cassegrain design helps to reduce the overall size of the lens while still providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 450mm.
One extra-low dispersion element and a UMC coating are integrated into the lens construction to improve sharpness and clarity as well as enhance the overall image contrast.

    Samyang 300mm f/6.3 reviews

    Reflex 300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS Lens for Sony E Mount (Silver) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, light and sharp My first impression upon unpacking this lens was to realize how small and light it is. Then I was impressed by how smooth the focusing ring was, without stickiness or backlash, a must for this kind of lens. Once I got enough practice focusing with it, I was impressed with its sharpness. Make no mistake, you will need practice: depth of field is quite short and focusing is a real exercise in finesse. But once you get there, the results are quite rewarding. The weakest point of this lens is its apparent vignetting, but if this bothers you, it is easily fixed using image processing software.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limited use lens I would give it 4 stars for build quality. 5 stars for light weight and compact size. Razor thin focal range and very low contrast images, requiring software processing to make the rare shot that is not blurry, usable. Slightest touch or bump will shift the focus. I will definitely keep this in the bag for limited use, for times when nothing else in my bag will work. Like most mirror lens, it is very difficult to focus accurately on moving objects and unlikely to have a sharp image while hand held. However if you shoot a high number of images, use 1/2000 or faster shutter speed, 1 in 50 shots of moving objects are usable and perhaps 1 in 3 shots of still objects from a tripod are acceptable. Not likely I will print or publish anything taken with this lens, but it can be useful for images that are used more for informational purposes, i.e. wildlife study, documenting vehicle movements, detective work, etc.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fine telephoto lens I purchased this lens for bird photography, and I'm very pleased with it. It's compact, well-built, and fun to use. Once you've found focus the images are sharp across the field. I recommend that your camera have focus peaking to get the most out of this lens.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a Good Fit for me Samyang Reflex 300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS Lens for Fujifilm X Mount I used this lens on a Fuji X-T10 camera. I typically shoot at a fixed ISO 200, but for this lens, I increased the ISO up to 800 when needed in order to keep a 1/450 sec shutter speed, following the reciprocal rule of focal length and shutter speed. I also used focus peaking. Physically, the lens feels solid and adds very little weight to the camera. In this sense, it is a pleasure to use. Sadly, however, this 300mm lens is not in the same league as its cousin, the Samyang 8mm f/2.8 Fisheye II Lens for Fujifilm, which is brilliant. All of the attached photos were adjusted in Photoshop Elements. 1.) Before buying this lens, you know that this lens is dark. That fact really hits you when shooting in low light situations, and focusing becomes a problem. 2.) The lens should be stabilized - I experienced a noticeable camera shake when zoomed out. 3.) Often images are poorly saturated - colors are not as vibrant as your eye see them. 4.) Calibration of feet/meters on side of lens barrel is inaccurate 5.) There does not appear to be any point where infinity kicks in - you have to focus the lens no matter how far away the subject is. This is too bad, because if infinity kicked in at, say, 25 feet, then focusing on far off subjects wouldn't be such a bummer. 6.) Image Quality - Acceptable, but with a high rate of rejects. Even my best photos have a softness to them. In the photograph of my very photogenic cat, Fritz, the overall photo is good but you can see that the cat's eye is not sharp. 7.) Depth of field is narrow - note the eyes of the meadowhawk dragonfly are well defined, but the tail is out of focus. The body of the meadowhawk is a one-inch long and it's resting on a flat surface - the entire insect should have been in focus. 8.) I got better image quality for subjects close to me (within, say, 15 feet). However, I think that this is true of any lens. 9.) When a stray branch dangled in from of my subject, this out of focus branch appeared as a line of connected blurred circles. These circles detract from the photo. I read a review of this lens after I purchased it - it stated that this lens is for people who don't care about Image Quality! Another review said that this lens is better than nothing when that once in a lifetime shot comes up. I wonder. Did we purchase a large sensor camera just so our battle cry will be It's better than nothing? I'm not certain where this lens fits into my lens line-up: Its focal length is too long for portraits, landscapes, and nightscapes. However, the focal length is not long enough for many birds and other wildlife opportunities. Without stabilization, shots of faraway objects and shots of moving objects are difficult. In low light, it takes a while to fix your focus, hoping all the time that the wildlife will patiently wait. Image quality falls off with increasing distance to the subject, negating the advantage of a long focal length. If you subtract out the long focal length, my other lenses can do everything this lens can do and better. This lens is not a good fit for me. For some reason you can only upload 2 photos - I had about a dozen that that I wanted to share. - Bob
