In late September Samyang announced the 21mmF1.4 and the 50mmF1.2… with a definitely intersting price tag.

So how do they perform?

After the dslrmagazine test here, now also ephotozine published its review here. ePHOTOzine’s VERDICT:

The Samyang 21mm f/1.4 is a pleasure to use, and after a while we can adapt again to using a fully manual lens. Depth of Field is directly observable on the screen as we are fixed at the working aperture. The f/1.4 aperture is bright enough to make focusing easier and stopping down the lens manually to take the shot becomes second nature. It is a lens that has a very pleasing character, not technically perfect but very much a photographer’s optic. In the real world of image making, I can see that there will be many users who will extract fine images from this.”
