    Is this the same optics as the f1.4 Samyang?

      Oh..apparently yes, I can read! yay

    • Yes, I believe so.

    • Yes, I think this lens is based on their “regular” model.

    Maybe this is a stupid question, but: can these type of lenses be used handily for still photography? Would there be any drawbacks to use it for stills?

    • arturo sanchez

      no problem 😉

    • Technically, there’s no problem. Practically, the weight and the extremely long and slow focus throws make typical cine/video versions of lenses more difficult to use for stills shooting than regular versions of the same lens.

  • Pablo Ricasso

    Why would it be any heavier?

    Dear Samyang,

    You’re awesome. Now PLEASE make a 50mm or 55mm T1.5 (or even better, a T1.3). We desperately need the set to be complete from 24-85. While you’re at it, a fast 135mm would also be really great, just to complete the full-frame set.

    And if you’re REALLY serious about cine-style lenses, we also need a fast 17mm-ish lense. Between 16-18mm, and f1.8/T1.9 or faster. It doesn’t have to cover full-frame. Just S35/APS-C.


    Pretty please.

    (yes, I know this is not a Samyang site)
