Samyang AF 35mm F1.8 FE Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

November 13th, 2020

The size of mirrorless cameras has trended ever larger as the early focus on (mostly) smaller sensors and compact lenses has shifted to high resolution full frame sensors and professional grade lenses designed to match (or exceed) what was available for DSLRs in the past.  Some of us don’t mind this trend, as we are more interested in getting quality images, but others feel disenfranchised by this trend.  They want smaller and lighter.  Samyang (also sold as Rokinon) is arguably the leader on Sony mirrorless for creating prime lenses that are both compact and competent.  I personally own the 18mm F2.8, 45mm F1.8, and 75mm F1.8 primes and love them.  They are nicely compact, optically very good, and have good autofocus performance.  Samyang has really refined the autofocus process via firmware and ongoing improvements (getting the Lens Station for applying those firmware updates and making customization tweaks is a good idea) and so now each of these lenses also gives a very autofocus performance.  The most recent of this series is very welcome – a beautiful little 35mm prime – the Samyang AF 35mm F1.8.  

The timing of this release is fortuitous, as Sony has just released their newest full frame mirrorless camera – the Sony a7C –  a compact full frame model that manages to (just about about) fit a fully featured full frame sensor with IBIS into a body roughly the size the a6xxx series.  Those who prioritize buying a compact camera will logically also prioritize buying compact lenses, and that makes the new Samyang AF 35mm F1.8 a tempting option.  My review will fully explore whether or not this lens is a valid option for you, but, in the meantime, you can enjoy the photos from this lovely little lens below.

Watch for my full written review along with video reviews coming soon.  In the meantime, enjoy the photos below!
