The release of the new Samyang 35mm f1.4 autofocus lens for the Sony E mount system has grabbed everyone’s attention. Owning both this lens as well as the Sony Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm f/1.4, I have been constantly asked to do a comparison review. In this comparison, I will go through everything showing the differences between the lenses.
After the 35mm f/2.8 lens announced in June, Samyang is expanding their line for another 35mm lens. This time, they are announcing a fast 35mm f/1.4 lens for Sony E-mount. Samyang 35mm f/1.4FE is another autofocus lens in their line-up, intended for Sony full frame cameras.
Samyang 35mm f/1.4FE competes Zeiss, and it’s almost half the price of the Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA. It comes with a price tag of £599, which is around $790.
