The Samyang 85mm f1.4 is a manual focus prime lens, designed to give exceptional results at wide apertures. At f1.4 great images can be obtained, which is perfect for portraiture and low light shooting, particularly when mounted on full frame DSLRs.
The Samyang 85mm is also suited to cropped sensors, including APS-C / DX sensors, giving approximately 127mm focal length equivalent, or 135mm focal length equivalent prime lens on Canon cropped sensor DSLRs. Coupled with the fast f1.4 aperture the focal length makes this lens ideal for portraits with tighter head shots or for working from a distance with cropped sensor cameras, as well as being suited to shooting in low light conditions.
The bokeh (the character of the out-of-focus blur) is a primary concern for professionals choosing an ultra large aperture lens for shallow depth-of-field photography. The Samyang 85mm f1.4 lens design offers excellent bokeh when used near wide open such as at f/1.4 or f/2. Independent tests from users confirm the Samyang's beautiful bokeh character, surpassing lenses costing 4 times the price.
The optical construction comprises 9 lenses divided into 7 optical groups with one aspheric lens element. The Samyang 85mm is designed with internal focusing (IF) meaning the lens does not increase in size while focusing. A further positive aspect to internal focusing is that the lens is much less likely to get dust inside, as opposed to external focusing lenses which can suck in dirt during use.
The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 IF MC features Multi-coated lens elements which aid the very high level of light transmission, and add resistance to flare and ghosting. It features a good sized manual focus ring and is perfectly adapted to most photographic applications (exclusive of sports or fast moving subjects) where manual focus is not an issue. Accuracy for focus-critical situations can be achieved through use of focusing in live view mode, available to most newer camera models. In practice users have found the manual focus of the Samyang 85mm not to be an issue, even when shooting at f1.4 with a very shallow depth of field in low light scenarios when shooting static and slow moving subjects. Accurate focus can be achieved giving excellent results thought the image on full frame cameras.
There are also increasing numbers of users using DSLRs for filming and High Definition (HD) video, and manual focus lenses allow the user to alter focus during filming. Much of the Samyang lens range (primarily for Canon EOS Mount, although some other mounts are possible) can also be specially ordered with uncoupled (de-clicked) manual aperture if the primary use of the lens if for video / film making where smooth changing the aperture is required during recording.
