If you’re in the market for some quality primes at affordable prices, you should checkout Samyang and Rokinon lenses.
Over the years, the staff here at The Phoblographer have reviewed almost two dozen Samyang and Rokinon lenses. We have always been impressed with the quality of the optics in their lenses, and more recently the build quality of their newest lenses. We now have an updated Rokinon and Samyang Buyers Guide available to anyone who wants quick access to all of their lenses we have reviewed over the last 10 years. Interested in a new but affordable lens?
In all, 22 lenses are listed in the Buyers Guide. We have updated the post with 10 new lenses we have reviewed. Some of the latest additions are the new autofocusing lenses like the Rokinon 50mm f1.4 AF and the Rokinon 85mm f1.4 AF. We have also added gems like the Rokinon 12mm f2 that offers APS-C shooters an excellent wide field of view, and the exceptional 135mm f2 – one of the sharpest manual focusing prime lenses we have used. It’s a seriously great portrait lens.
We have also updated the overall look and feel of the guide. Now it mirrors more closely the aesthetic we have throughout the rest of the website. You’ll also find that we have added a table of contents to whisk you to whichever lens you want to look at. This will save you having to scroll through the entire list if you know what you’re looking for. Whether you’re interested in fast, ultra-wide lenses or primes that will help you create stunning street photography or portraits, we have Rokinon glass reviewed that you will love. Go and check out the updated guide and tell us what you think.
