Lens Review Date: December 23, 2019 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: $400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, even at F1.4!
Cons: Maybe its size
Sharpness: 10    Aberrations: 9    Bokeh: 10    Handling: 9    Value: 10    Camera Used: K70   

I was looking for a good replacement for my good old M 50mm 1.7 lens. The Pentax DFA50mm 1.4 is just too big and heavy to use as a daily lens (and expensive). This Samyang 50mm 1.4 is just perfect! Its really really sharp and the bokeh is to die for! If you don't care about AF, this lens is the deal!

Lens Review Date: December 28, 2017 I can recommend this lens: Yes | Price: $420.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Wide max aperture, Bokeh rendering, Overall image quality, Aperture rings means the lens can be easily adapted to mirrorless cameras.
Cons: Bad flare resistance (loss of contrast, alway use a hood), On APS-C it needs to be stopped down to f5.6 for best sharpness, In some conditions colours tend to look a bit yellow, Lens hood mount got somewhat loose after a few uses
Sharpness: 7    Aberrations: 7    Bokeh: 10    Handling: 8    Value: 8    Camera Used: Pentax K-70   

On a full frame camera it's a no-brainer. I'm surprised people don't talk more about this lens.
