The Samyang AF 35-150mm f/2-2.8 offers a hugely versatile range of focal lengths in tandem with particularly wide maximum apertures, all at an impressively affordable price, making it attractive for wedding, events, sports, and portrait photographers. How does it perform in practice? This excellent video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in usage.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Samyang AF 35-150mm f/2-2.8 lens. With a particularly useful focal length range that covers many of the most commonly used options paired with an especially wide set of maximum apertures, the 35-150mm f/2-2.8 offers an almost unmatched level of convenience that can replace three or four lenses. On top of that, at just $1,299, it is far more affordable than even one of those lenses would be from a first-party manufacturer. Beyond that, the Samyang offers support for Sony's advanced autofocus features, nine diaphragm blades for smoother bokeh, three customizable mode switches, and a weather-sealed design. Perhaps the only major drawback is the bulk, but that is to be expected considering how many lenses it is replacing. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
