Samyang RF 85mm F1.4 AF Image Gallery

May 29th, 2020

At the beginning of this year I was delighted when Samyang released the Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 lens in an RF mount.  It was an autofocusing lens (and one that autofocuses very well on the Canon EOS R that I tested it on) and also had a beautiful, weather sealed build.  I expressed hope that this was the beginning of Samyang delivering a number of their excellent recent autofocusing lenses from Sony onto the new Canon RF platform, and that appears to be the case.  I’m delighted to see one of my favorite Samyang lenses (the AF 85mm F1.4) now come to Canon RF, where it delivers a MUCH less expensive alternative to the excellent (but incredibly expensive) Canon RF 85mm F1.2L lens (my review here).  Despite being less than a third of the price, the Samyang RF 85mm delivers a beautiful optical performance.  I’ll be delivering a detailed analysis of the lens in my review (stay tuned!), but in the meantime you can get a sense of the kinds of photos you can produce with a prime portrait option like this.
