By on

Here are several reviews of the Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE lens surfaced on the web.

Samyang’s AF 35mm F/1.4 FE fast prime lens continues support for the Sony E-Mount cameras with auto focus. This takes their Auto focus lens lineup to four lenses, fantastic for Sony users looking for an alternative to Sony’s own lenses.

Three existing autofocus lenses are the AF 14mm F2.8 FEAF 35mm F2.8 FE and AF 50mm F1.4 FE. Samyang / Rokinon AF 35mm f/1.4 FE lens is currently selling for a retail price of $799 in US.

The wide-angle prime lens for full-frame Sony E-mount cameras is comprised of 11 elements in 9 groups including two aspherical elements and two high refractive index elements. It features a rounded 9 blade diaphragm which creates an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image.

PhotographyBlog reviews the AF 35mm f/1.4 FE lens and their conclusion is :

The new Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE is a very fast and relatively affordable classic 35mm lens for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras that’s a viable alternative to the much more expensive Sony Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA optic.

The fast prime lens is specifically designed to work with full frame mirrorless cameras in Sony E mount. For full frame sensors, the focal length resembles the human eye the most. For APS-C size image sensor cameras like Sony A6500 and A5000 series users the lens is equivalent to approximately 52mm.

ePhotozine publishes their review for this lens too and their verdict is :

The Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE lens is a very attractive proposition for those seeking a fast 35mm lens. The quality is uniformly excellent and the price much lower than the marque alternatives. All in all, the lens is excellent value for money.
