Detail, Landscape and Portrait
This lens fetches details without bringing the typical, gripping telephoto effect into the picture. It is more than superior to the standard Vario lens of the digital camera due to its freedom from distortion and its aperture. It can be handled by hand, even snapshots can be taken with this focal length without any problems. Users of an APS-C camera will be pleased: they finally have a medium-length landscape lens, corresponding to the image impression of a 200mm 35mm lens, which still has a fabulous aperture, allowing safe working and unprecedented shots.
Excellent light intensity
Usually the largest aperture (speed) is located at a minimum of F2.8 or F3.5 with a 135mm lens. Especially with this medium-length landscape and portrait focal length, a larger aperture was often missed - or is simply difficult to afford. The Samyang 135mm with its initial aperture of F2 is 100% brighter than its competitors. This not only allows handheld photography in critical lighting conditions, but also brings creative highlights by allowing the subject to be virtually left free: the depth of field is half that of a 135mm with F2.8 aperture. At the same time, the viewfinder is twice as bright, which helps enormously with image evaluation.
High quality optics
The lens has a very innovative optical design: with 11 lenses in 7 groups, it also provides excellent imaging at close range together with a lens made of high-refractive ED glass. The close-up limit is deliberately kept very close at 80cm - the focus on detail is easy with this lens. Mechanically it is held in such a way that the tube does not rotate during focusing (makes the use of 77mm polarizing filters much easier) and also the overall length does not change - regardless of whether you are working at infinity or at 80cm focusing distance. This is achieved by a second inner tube, which is moved to the focus position within the outer mount. A further advantage: the centre of gravity remains almost the same during focusing. The fine focus distribution is achieved by an almost circular aperture with 9 blades. All glass and air surfaces are, of course, coated with Samyang's own ultra multi-coating UMC.
Advantages of a full frame lens on a camera with APS-C sensor (or smaller)
Save time in post-processing: A variety of lens defects such as distortion, blur, or vignetting appear on the edges of the image. If you use a full-frame lens on a camera with an APS-C sensor, these areas will not be used in the first place. Thus, you automatically get the maximum quality and no additional time for correcting lens errors needs needs to be invested in post-processing.
