Thanks for the informative review. This Samyang or a used Sony FE 1.8/35mm for a few quid more? Thoughts?!

Thanks for the review, as always one of the first (if not the first) to be published.
How it compares to the Samyang f1.4? Do you think the f1.4 it's worth the extraq size and weight over the f1.8 (and 100Ä more where I live)?

@OGee - I haven't reviewed the Sony lens so can't really comment on that.

@MarcM - The cost difference is for 1/3 stop and the weight and bulk increase needs to be offset against that. It really depends on whether the individual needs the extra speed and that justifies the extra cost and bulk. I know what I would do, but that's not really saying anything about what your own requirements are. These things are such a personal choice.

Thanks for your reply.
Well, if the image quality is about the same overall (specially bokeh quality), then i would have no doubt, i would go for the f1.8. I don't care for the 1/3 of stop difference. Thing is I don't want to trade too much image quality to go lighter... On the other hand, I'm assuming the autofocus is better in the f1. 8, am I correct?

I recently bought the Samyang 35mm F1.4, and I'm reasonably happy with it, but I still can return it and buy the new f1.8 if it's the better option.

@MarcM - I doubt that you will see much difference in image quality between the two lenses nor do I think there's much difference in AF between the two. They are both generally excellent. Hope that helps you decide!
