I used my SAMYANG 24mm lens again… RACŁAWKI VALLEY November 6, 2020
Here are my new reflections on the Samyang 24mm T1.5 manual cine lens with the Sony a7III body:
1) It is much more efficient for closeups.
2) Extremely hard to focus with F1.5-2.8 especially on a distant objects.
3) Weird flares which may be useful as part of an artistic vision and less useful whenever you need to have a clean shot.
4) Wider shots may seem a little bit too soft.
I should say this lens is still a great choice for the people who are looking for a fast prime lens and want to have a full manual control over it. However it’s extremely hard to operate when conditions are changing rapidly or you would like to shoot yourself for a vlog.
