accuracy with a "manual everything" lens is kind of a nebulous concept.

all i care about is whether or not something is repeatable and predictable. in this case, it is.

perhaps renting a lens would convince you one way or another? nothing like trying things out first hand.

on both of my samyang lenses (85mm and 35mm) i pull about a stop of exposure compensation when using auto metering modes with my 5dc.

i also have an ee-s screen which may factor into that.

i also despise clipping highlights.

I hear you brother.
I always underexpose 1/3-2/3 stop with my lovely Samyang.

Rented a Canon 35mm L for a day at Adorama, but there's no way that's going to replace my beloved Samyang. This lens might be bigger and without autofocus, but optically it is slightly better and I'm not gonna drop another 1000$ on top of the Samyangs price.

So when your using this lens with av or using this lens period you just got to put the exposure down so it can accurately get the right exposure. @tijmen what do you think about the Zeiss 351.4 do you think is worth the money over rokinon?

It's funny, I tested the Zeiss 35mm yesterday at Adorama. They were so kind to let me slap that puppy on my cam. The thing is: the Samyang is an AMAZING lens. Sure the Zeiss has it's edge over the Samyang: metal build, EXIF, digital controls, slightly smaller, nicer focus ring with harder stops, a sun-hood that clicks in place REALLY neatly and of course the Zeiss rendering, but it also has a 1500$ tag or so and it's really heavy too.
On my tiny 5Dc screen, the images weren't much better than what I'm used to from my Samyang. Yesterday, I photographer with the Samyang, Canon L and Zeiss, and I would say that optically they're more-or-less the same. The Samyang is cheap, the Canon has AF (and is significantly smaller than the other two) and the Zeiss' a Zeiss.
I haven't really checked the Zeiss images on my laptop screen, but will let you guys know.
