I forgot to mention this lens’s price: €350 / £319 (approx. $350 US).
I also forgot to say “thank you” to Samyang for providing a sample of this lens for testing – although, as usual, this is a totally independent review.
Here’s something I haven’t seen before: an 85mm lens just for APS-C cameras. It’s clearly a intended as a classic portrait lens – let’s see how it performs. It will be available for Sony E, Fuji X, Canon EOS M and Micro 4/3 mounts.
By the way, this review is not sponsored by Samyang or Marumi or anyone else! I just love this lens, hehe (even though it’s not perfect).
All pictures taken by me on Sony a7R II and a5100 cameras.
