The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 lens is an excellent addition to any amateur or professional photographer's kit, and allows you to shoot stunning close-ups and large landscape views. With a maximum aperture of f/1.4, this lens helps you capture clear photos even in low-light conditions. With a construction of 12 elements in 10 groups, the lens effectively corrects chromatic aberrations in photos, and the eight-blade diaphragm provides great out-of-focus shots. The floating system in the lens automatically regulates the internal focusing system to efficiently capture close-up portraits. Moreover, the 77 mm filter thread easily accommodates a wide range of protective lens filters. All in all, the Samyang 35mm f1/4 makes a great addition to your camera kit.

just got the samyang 135.f2 its brill
i am 66 now and have been tacking photos from the age of 18 years old
The lens is quite heavy, but I suppose that's the price you pay for good glass.
Focus ring is smooth, and actually allot better than some of the Pentax lenses I own.
If you after a budget friendly lens with astonishing image quality stop reading this and buy !
If there was any negative is that it takes a lot of practice to perfect taking sharp images as it is manual focus, but for the price you are paying for a 35mm 1.4 one can't really complain.
DON'T HESITATE BUY IT!
It is fully manual; aperture as well as focus are controlled manually, and the lens has no communication with the camera at all.
The aperture ring will open up to f/1.4, and at this aperture the lens lets in a lot of light (so can be good to use with the available light in low light conditions) but the depth of field is extremely thin. With portrait subjects (35mm being a reasonable focal length for wider portraits on a crop-sensor camera like my 50D or the more recent 1200D, 700D or 70D), it means it's extremely important to get the focus right (generally on the subject's eyes) - otherwise it's possible for example the hair will be in focus but the eyes blurry. Unless you've upgraded your camera with a manual-style split focusing screen, achieving good focus at f/1.4 probably entails using live view and zooming in to see the details well enough. If the camera or subject move even a little at f/1.4, you'll need to refocus. With the lens stopped down a little, the depth of field is deeper and therefore it's much easier to hit a good focus; and down at f/8 to f/11 it makes a nice 'standard lens' on a crop-sensor camera.
Because the aperture ring is right up against the body of the camera, it's hard to adjust quickly; you generally do have to take your eye away from the viewfinder to do it. The focus ring in contrast has a very smooth movement and is a pleasure to use.
The bokeh (the quality of the out of focus areas of the image) is very good indeed, rivalling even my Jupiter 9 85mm (which has 15 aperture blades). Blurred areas of the image are very smooth and add to the feel of the images.
The sharpness of the in-focus areas is extremely good in the centre and still good in the corners even at f/1.4, contrast is good and colour rendition is acceptable although to me has a certain 'feel' to it that stands out but is hard to pin down exactly why.
I would never use this lens for general photography; at higher aperture numbers it doesn't perform that much better than my standard zoom lens - but the standard zoom offers a lot of additional flexibility in comparison. However for portraits or any other image where you're shooting at wide apertures and want to separate your subject from the background using depth of field, it's very strong and worth considering, particularly due to the excellent bokeh; if I wanted to take a full-body portrait with a blurred background it would probably be my first choice.
If Manual Focus deters you then still buy it. As it will make you concentrate and a better Photographer.
Pictures speak thousand words..I am not a Professional Photographer and If I can get such good results the with little practice you can get better.
It's Razor sharp, lots of light and I prefer this over 85mm f1.4. I use an APSC sensor (Nikon D7100 mount).
