The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 IF MC Aspherical Lens Olympus is one of the most effective lenses for demonstrating the correct perspective for both the subject and the background at the same time. If perhaps you happen to be a professional photographer who shoots birthday parties, weddings, travel photography and people photography, this 85mm lens will give you results you have always yearned for.

This Samyang lens has an outstanding capability to bring a sharp subject forward from a smooth background, presenting three-dimensional images, at quite a few apertures. The lens works well in dimly light scenarios, and for any sort of shot in which you require limited depth-of-field, this lens is most suitable for portrait photography.

The Samyang 85mm lens is ideal for use in portrait photography

Product features:

  • Bright lens, perfect for shooting in low light f/1.4 maximum aperture.
  • This lens is ideal for nature shots and portraits, to magnify and bring in subjects / distant objects.
  • The lenses have several layers of anti-reflective coating UMC to ensure of high-quality pictures.
  • Closest focusing distance 1.0m.
  • Compact, easy to carry lens.

The build quality of the lens is very good, even though Samyang are a comparative newbie to the lens market, and whenever you hold the lens in your hand the it  feels solid.

The lens is supplied with an easily removed petal shaped lens hood and the filter size is 72mm. Focusing is conducted internally so the Samyang 85mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC lens won't change length and the filter thread will not rotate, wonderful news for filter users.

The focusing ring is generously wide with a ridged, rubberized grip band. Seeing as this is a manual focus lens only, you will find there's a distance scale that extends from the closest distance of 1m to infinity ( no depth of field scale exists ).

One of several reasons to spend money on a fast lens is to be allowed to isolate the subject from the background, and is in most cases very tricky to do with an ultrawide lens. Samyang have now used an iris diaphragm using 8 rounded blades for a pleasant rendering from the out-of-focus highlights. Chromatic aberrations, in most cases noticed as purple or blue fringes along the edges, are actually remarkably well managed with this lens.

8 diaphragm blades provide a smooth Bokeh (blur) effect.

The Samyang 85mm f/1.4 IF MC Aspherical Lens Olympus should be a lens to consider for all professionals or amateur photographers who require a fast prime lens. When the value of the lens is thought about it should not be neglected for amateur use, or as a primary or secondary lens for professionals looking for a dedicated, high performing portrait lens.

This lens produces remarkable image quality and is composed of 9 elements in 7 groups with one aspherical element to supply the uttermost quality, moreover it costs less than a quarter of various other very similar lenses on the market.
