Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC

My copy is branded as a Bower, but Samyang makes it. Also available as a Vivitar, Rokinon, etc.

cool pics... $299 at b&h for this lens.

i like this lens on the a7r, just wish that it wasn't so big :-) pretty much any 35/1.4 is gonna be huge tho.

Spent a month up close and personal with the lens for a Single In, so here are some more samples.

I have one as well and optically its outstanding, sharp wide open, great colors, bokeh. The only problem that I've seen is with its construction quality, the aperture mechanism on these lenses tends to break causing the lens to be stuck wide open.

From a walk through the forest with K1 and Samyang (well in my case Rokinon) 1.4/35 on a tripod.
I've added a touch of vignetting in post ...
