Samyang 85mm f1.4 – what a great little lens

If you’ve read any of my other posts, I love my low-cost gear and the Samyang 85mm f1.4.  In a recent test comparing the Samyang 85mm to the Nikkor 85mm these results were clocked:

Now this is pretty impressive when you consider the price point.  The Samyang is only 1/5th the price.  It’s not great for photography, but film, it’s sharp, performs incredibly at low-light and really makes people stand out.  I use it on most shoots I do.  I love this lens and the results it achieves.

Here are some closer stills of it:
