Kisaha Posted August 30, 2022 Share Posted August 30, 2022 Big improvement they are not, I got the 16mm RF because it was the only logical choice for the R7 (in terms of size/weight and price), and a unique proposition. Great lens it is not, and I did a little research on most of them. Obviously not many RF-S options. How many 1.2f lenses do you believe they sell every month? Or how many people are going to buy the 28-70mm 2f? The 35mm is a mixed bag, macro it is not. A part of the Abbott review about the 85mm 2f "I vastly prefer the autofocus performance of the Samyang to the RF85M, as it utilizes linear motors to achieve faster, quieter, smoother focus. The Samyang is also weather sealed, comes with a lens hood and a pouch, and has a slightly higher build quality in terms of external materials…not to mention that it has an aperture a full stop larger at F1.4. The big advantage for the Canon is in magnification, as the Samyang has a rather pathetic 0.11x magnification. But how about image quality? Comparing the two lenses at F2 (on the EOS R5) reveals that both are incredibly sharp and have excellent contrast, with perhaps a slight edge for the Samyang." They produce such excellent lenses that are affraid of Viltrox and Samyang ones! Imagine if they have to compete with Sigma, or other established lens makers.. They put I.S on some of the zooms..something that should have been there for years now and other manufacturers already have.. Selling a piece of plastic for a big proportion of the lens's price (for the cheap lenses at least) is a terrible business decision and shows a lot, and hoods are needed. solovetski 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
