A shot of figs, the image is nothing special, but just testing out my new 300/4 Zeiss C/Y on the a6400. Pretty damn sharp wide open.
Wow, that looks like a belter of a lens!

Another shot from my roof from a few days ago. Interesting colours here.

Sony A7r4 FE 100 - 400mm + 2 x TC at 800mm f/16 4 seconds

That is an unbelievable sunset. How much was post production?

Not a huge amount. I use Nik plug ins - Viveza mainly. The colours are definitely there in the raw file, I've drawn them out a bit...

Slight preference for the 2nd one, but both are something fantastic !

A few mono shots from a recent ramble down one of my favourite beaches. The dogs were knackered after the few hours we spent there.
All taken with the a7iii, accompanied by the Samyang 35mm f/2.8, Samyang 45mm f/1.8 and Samyang 75mm f/1.8 - the only autofocus lenses I own.

Good job, which one is your favourite focal ?

Thank you! It's a tricky one. I've recently become quite accustomed with 35mm, so that along with being sharp wide-open makes the 35mm very simple to use. It's also exceptionally light so a great travel lens.
The 45mm is a good, capable lens and near-normal on full-frame so is simple to adjust to.
75mm is a new addition for me but first impressions are that it focuses quicker, more accurately and more silently than the 45mm and it's still fantastically sharp from wide-open.
The 35mm suffers the most from vignette and distortion but that gives it a 'vintage' character for me, so actually ticks a box in that regard.

TL, DR; I think it's a toss-up between the 35 and 75, with the 35 probably having the edge for usability in more situations, at the expense of low-light capability.
The new 35mm f/1.8 is therefore a fairly tempting lens...

They are all nice, but that last one really draws me in.
