Ive just received my new Samyang 35mm 1.4 Lens for my Canon 5d Mkii.

These are some early test videos (with colouring post production)

My initial review of this lens?


Its a beautiful lens! A gorgeous image quality, quite sharp even wide open, great value for money.

Its manual Focus and Manual Aperture, not a problem for video work or those who are used to manual photography.

I cannot recommend this enough, really great!
Got mine for £360 GBP

Post Production done in After Effects cs5

I used Magic Lantern Unified Build to assist focusing and exposing, Check out Magic lantern if you havent already, its invaluable to Canon DSLR video users. Also donate generously to their development team!
