Over the years, the staff at The Phoblographer have reviewed over two dozen Samyang and Rokinon lenses. The quality of optics in their lenses is excellent. More recently, we’ve been excited about their improved build quality. The great thing is that while the quality has gone up considerably, Rokinon and Samyang’s prices have stayed low. This is great as it gives many photographers the ability to buy fantastic primes without destroying themselves financially.
