anyone else excited for the 35mm f/1.4? Ever since reading the review on lenstip.com, I've ditched all plans to get a sigma 30mm f/1.4 in preparation for the samyang

got to admit given i shoot mostly manual it's appealing, and likely more in my price range (it also fills a hole in my focal lengths as do all the samyangs funnily enough)

Not really. Just landed an M35F2 to go with my S-M-C tak 35F2. I bought the 85, 14 and 8mm all because they were cheaper than anything else I could get in legacy glass that was close in aperture at the focal length, the 35F1.4 is different, although I will admit I have found the IQ from th eother recient offerings to be excellent

The new 35mm looks pretty big. I have 85 and 14 and found them to be very very good. Value equation is the highest I have seen, if you can tolerate MF.

I think it looks great, but I just found a like new Zeiss 35/2 ZK for not much more than the predicted price for the Samyang.

The Samyang looks phenomenal and even beats the Zeiss in some categories according to lenstip (vignetting, lateral CA, obviously 1 stop faster). The Zeiss has it beat on size, wide-open performance, and (in my opinion) bokeh.

I'm glad to see Samyang producing such great lenses for KA mount, especially considering we lost Voigtlander and Zeiss. I personally am hoping for a FF Pentax to keep lenses like this coming (and perhaps get back V&Z in the process).

I use my 14mmF2.8 on my PZ-1 as well as my digital bodies. How much more "full frame" do you need?

A new FF of the digital variety.

Kudos to you for utilizing your lenses on film! I've been considering giving that a try.

It is a no brainer I started shooting pentax In 1981. I have everything I ever bought. The PZ-1 is just the newest film body and arguably one of pentax's best ever

What has impressed me with both the 8pm and the 14mm is the coatings and flare resistance when shooting into the sun

I was searching Google for Samyang lenses and this thread came up. I didn't know PF had such a thread. Good to know because I'm buying a Samyang lens off a member here. Perhaps later I'll show you some photos taken with it. Luckily, it's just what I've been looking for, for my birding photography. A Samyang 100-500mm K-mount.
