Fotuwe : effing great shot! Mind to share some behind the scenes?

Thanks!
It was just about sunset with some strong direct sunlight (thats why there are some flares - but that was what I was looking for). In front a zebra (gold/silver reflector) for some fill light.

Gaaah...I cant decide on whether to get this lens or the 35L! Seen some great shots from both sample threads! I want something wider than my current 50 1.4 on 5d mk2 but not sure if i can live without the AF for day to day use and it isnt quite as wide as 35mm or quite a f/1.4. Then there's also the extra weight and size to it...But the price difference!!!

I recently tried manual focusing in fairly dark bar(@ iso6400 f/1.4 ~1/30) with the eg-s screen and 50 f/1.4 but i could barely see what was in/out of focus through the viewfinder.

Has anyone found it hard to manual focus in low light?

that lens is not made for the majority...i'm getting so many PNs complaining that MF is not that easy, what AF-Chip i'm using, which focusing screen and so on...quality wise this lens is superb. IQ as good as the 35L. Still - if you have the money get the 35L.. much much easier to use.

May the spam be with you! :P

Focusing in low light is hard. Especially if you're only using the viewfinder. If you use the lcd screen and zoom in, much easier. In low light, you can just crank up the iso until you're in focus, drop it back down and take the shot.

I miss this lens but I couldn't do without AF especially when I do nightlife stuff. I don't mind manually focusing at all, but, Things I like to photograph usually don't stay still long enough for me to manually focus and I like shallow DOF.

So, I sold mine and got a 35L. Love it! However, my Samyang's image quality was better than the 35L. I may purchase another one in the future.

If you'll be doing alot of still life, landscape, and things that will stay still enough, go with the Samyang. Its is an AWESOME lens.

Yea, I always have a hard time focusing in a dark restaurant or place using the viewfinder.

If I have enough light to be able to use f/2 or even f/2.8 (max), I'll try to focus my best at f/1.4, and then stop it back down to get a little more DOF.

Otherwise, I'd use Live view (which I hate to use) or stop taking pictures and enjoy my time with my friends or my beer.:)

Panorama with my favorite lens. The colors were very intense. Not much post needed.
