The optical design of the mirror and mirrorless versions of the lenses 14 / 2.8 and 85 / 1.4 are significantly different. Some Samyang lenses may be sold under another brand - Rokinon.

There is also an interesting premium manual lens line XP for full-frame cameras:

  1. Xp 10 / 3.5 [Canon EF, Nikon F]
  2. XP 35 / 1.2 [Canon EF]
  3. XP 50 / 1.2 [Canon EF]

The number of ordinary manual lenses from Samyang / Rokinon can no longer be counted. In addition, there are a huge number of movie lenses Samyang / Rokinon line Cine and Proffesional Cine (XEEN series).

  • B. R. P.

    We are waiting for the return move from Yongnuo)

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Most likely Yongs will not go to zooms. Samyang nevertheless developed and develops better and faster. And zooms are the next level.

      • B. R. P.

        Yes, I think so too.

      • SERGOS

        starting from 36 megapixels \ sony 7r \ samyang, none of them resolve the matrix, it seems to be good - sharpness is like a beer can in the center by 70mm, and when you put sony-zeiss 24-70, you understand that either the money was thrown away, or I just wasted time if I took it from a friend. Now on the secondary sony-zeiss f4-up to 40t.r ... and even if f4 is decent. and works great at 42mp. well, I don’t believe \ then I will check \ that samyang f2.8 will get through though would be in semi-pro for $ 1000. autofocus is good and thanks, it's time too. also 85mm f1.4-until I tried sony-zeiss za through an adapter to sony 7rii \ 42 mp \ .. heaven and earth. on the secondary too up to 40t.r. here samyang 85mm \ true manual \ corresponds to the price and quality up to 24 megapixels. I agree with Arkady that it’s not about megapixels or even a camera. a poor artist may have JUST a pencil in his hand, but he creates it something because he is an ARTIST

        • Arkady Shapoval

          а zeiss 24-70 / 4 By the way, only the lazy didn't scold, is he really that good?

  • UstasFritZZZ

    Finally, I will change my whale 28-70 to a glass lighter, it remains to wait until the price drops a little and you can take

  • Aleksey68

    The parfocality there is most likely electronic, not optical-mechanical.

  • Vladimir

    It seems to me that there is a mistake in the first sentence. The brackets should contain “(aka Rokinon AF 24-70 / 2.8 FE)”.
