Samyang should have made the ultra wide angle and supper-tele lenses for ASP-C camera too. For example, 10mm and 300mm. So that, the amateur photographers will buy them.

This lens is designed for full frames which are owned by professional photographers, and they would already own professional lenses from genuine brand names.

@ Koulang

Samyang Lenses are suitable for APS-C cameras, including this Samyang 24mm Lens.

Samyang lens range include the 8mm Fisheye, 14mm, 24mm, 35mm, 85mm and the 500mm and 800mm mirror lenses. All these are suitable for APS-C cameras, and all (except the 8mm Fisheye) are also suitable on full frame.

Please see http://www.samyang.co.uk for details.

Hope that helps.

Thank Samyang UK!

I use ASP-C and want 10mm wide lens, so I can’t find anywhere within Samyang. Mirror tele lenses are less than my satisfaction while genuine brand is extremely expensive for me. I believe 10mm, 300mm and 500mm would have sold well because amateur photographers don’t want to spend huge money to buy professional lenses.

There are already many very good UWA lenses for APS-C. Canon 10-22, Sigma 10-20 and 8-16, Tokina 11-16 etc… I don’t see the point for Samyang to develop yet another one in an already crowded market.

I’d reather like to see Samyang develop lenses where choice is limited and price is high like a 24mm Tilt-Shift, 135mm f2, etc…

Has anyone compared actual light transmission between the samyang and nikon 24mm 1.4? If for example set manually toto same shutterspeed and iso with wide open aperture which lens would give the brightest picture?
