Samyang 85mm F1.4 AS IF UMC Pentax Review (DxOMark): High Image Quality at Bargain-basement Price

Samyang 85mm F1.4 lens

Kevin Carter has just posted a full review of Samyang 85mm F1.4 AS IF UMC lens at the DxOMark. With an excellent DxOMark score of 26 points, tested on the 24-MP Pentax K-3, Samyang 85mm F1.4 lens ranks close to the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG A and Pentax SMC DA* 55mm F1.4 lens, while the price is only half or even less.

“High image quality at bargain-basement price”, Conclusions from DxOMark: “Reasonably-priced and sharp when stopped down a little, the Samyang 85mm f1.4 AS IF UMC looks like a bargain. However, its popularity will be limited by the stopped-down metering, though the viewfinder will still be reasonably bright at f/2.8 and f/4, of course. .. Providing those shortcomings can be overlooked, there’s no real reason not to like this model. It offers great image quality at a very reasonable price.”
