Thanks for the sample images. I can already see onion bokeh:



$799 for a 35mm f/1.4: I can learn to love onion photography.

I would much appreciate an affordable, decently sharp, native 35mm 1.4 to counter my Loxiaí 35s wide-open horribleness (love the Loxia stopped down though). Hope it turns out well.

I agree and at the end, it could be pretty mild. I just pointed this flaw so we know what to expect. Any more samples?

Who's going to be a guinea pig and test this lens?

for many testing , it has all the feature of a native lens plus high level of sharpness and bokeh somehow mimics the swirly look of legend helios 44-2 have brought great features to this lens.

At that price this lens has my attention, copy variation is my biggest concern. Iíve played the Samyang lottery and done well twice, but had a dud before.

Totally agree with you. I've had some good and bad with Samyang lottery. My main concern is de-centering. I've a 14mm MFwith the worst decentering I've ever seen and I've had a 14mm AF with near perfect centering. From what I've seen online of people dissecting Samyang lenses, they are held together by a lot of glue while more premium lenses use screws so pieces are also likely to drift over time.

Is Sony really any better with copy variation in much of their glass that costs twice as much? I usually purchase used from reputable people and have had not issues with glass that were duds. I suggest you purchase from a store that has a great return policy.

Yeah given that the lens this is going head to head with is known for terrible copy variation it is going to take a lot more than sample variation in the Samyang to send me in that direction.

I have the Samyang MF 35mm F1.4 for Nikon. It is sharp wide open. So Samyang can do it.

Given the price crash of the Samyang 35/2.8 in a very short time, there is a strong likelyhood that the introductory price of the 35/1.4 also will not last for long.

Already received a response.

My question: Are you an authorized dealer of Rokinon products? Will they honor their
warranty if I buy from you?

Answer: Yes, absolutely.

Not sure how to embed with this code... so here is a link to the focus speed/noise between the rokinon 35mm 2.8 and the newer 1.4

Interesting, I've been holding on to my Canon 35L to potentially use with future A7 bodies (AF is pretty spotty with the original A7 and Metabones). I wonder if this would perform better than an adapted lens on the more current AF systems.
