p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · E mount Samyang 85/135 on Z mount, anyone?


Samyang has terrific primes, now on their 2nd iteration, for Sony E mount. Namely, 35/50/85 1.4 and 135 1.8. These lenses are known for their character and classic film like rendering, especially the 85/135 are a take on their much liked MF lenses.

But Samyang doesn't make those lenses for Z mount for whatever reason. So here's my question:

I know FE mount lenses when used on Z mount throw away distortion and such corrections. Has anyone used the 85 or 135 on Z mount?

Is it safe to say that a short tele and a medium tele will not have any such problems, and they won't need any corrections to begin with, compared to wide angle lenses?

Thanks
Guni

The lack of distortion correction natively doesn't really matter unless you shoot JPEG. In Lightroom, you can easily select the correct lens distortion profile (and to make it faster, I have one click actions to apply that for my E mount lenses).

I've not used others but Samyang 50 II works well on Z8. Beautiful rendering and color. Unfortunately, I'm selling it as Tamron 35-150 has replaced most of my primes.
