Versatile wide-angle with high lens speed
The Samyang 35/1.2 lens is the ideal focal length, ready to shoot reportage. In combination with an 85 mm it is always the right combination. The outstanding advantage of the 35 mm is its freedom from distortion: it puts more image on the sensor, but the distortion or receding perspective typical of wide-angle lenses still does not occur. The very high aperture of 1.2 allows for up to 3 stops of reserve compared to a standard varifocal lens. The light intensity is also visible in the brightness of the viewfinder, which provides setting reliability. The very shallow depth of field at open aperture facilitates pinpoint focusing.
The lens is equipped with internal focusing. Lens groups are shifted internally, the overall length of the optics does not change, nor does the front mount rotate when focusing. Graduated and polarising filters can therefore be easily attached (size 62 mm).
9 lens elements in 7 groups testify to an enormous effort to achieve very good optics. One lens is aspherically ground, two others have highly refractive glass. Despite the medium angle of view, hardly any aberrations are visible even at full aperture.
Using an APS-C lens on a camera with a full-frame sensor
Lenses designed for cameras with an APS-C sensor can sometimes be used (mainly by using an adapter) on cameras with a full-frame sensor. However, due to the much smaller image circle of APS-C lenses, the edges will be black. The usable area of the image photographed with a full-frame camera therefore corresponds to that of a camera with an APS-C sensor. The images must therefore be cropped in post-processing. Using APS-C lenses on full-frame cameras is therefore possible, but not recommended.
