I've owned the samyang 85mm and the 35mm before. Where i LOVED the 35, the 85 was more of a hit and miss for me. The focus ring has a very long throw and was very "tight" imo. Tbh, it sat mostly in my bag and was my most unused lens due to that. I also owned the old Contax Zeiss 50 1.4. I loved what i got out of that lens, but i wanted to see what i could get out of the new ZE version.

as for the crap 50mm f1.8 i have, that's what i'm planning to replace them with. the zeiss 50 (don't want the sigma 50 again bc i just didn't like it, the canon 50 1.4 doesn't make me go WOW for it) and i'm planning to go with the canon 85 1.8 due to AF. I can MF completely fine it's just that easiness of having AF. Especially after having the new AF system on the 5D3 :)

I think the setup I want for 35mm, 50mm and 85mm are respectively Samyang, Contax and Canon. I've heard about the 'hit or miss' with the Samyang and seeing how happy I am with the Canon I don't see too much incentive to swap it for the Sammy.

So which route are you going?
i'm going 35 samyang, 50 zeiss, 85 canon or samyang.

Well, that's exactly what I said ;) I'm selling off a lot of the MF glass I've hoarded. As much as I like trying out a ton of lenses, I think it would be much better to just have 3 lenses and go with that.
The biggest problem for me is I'm a poor college student. I really want to get a 5Dc to get a little wider than I do now. I'm also thinking about getting a 24mm, probably a Zuiko, but that would be for crop, because I don't find my 28mm Zuiko wide enough on my cropper. I really haven't ever shot FF (except for film, but then I only shot with 50mm's) so I find it very hard to tell how wide 35mm would be on FF and if it would be wide enough for landscapes.

hey, I shoot my landscapes with 30mm on a crop body now that I sold my 11-16. It's a matter of composition and good eye, not how wide your lens goes ;)

the 28 zuikos will be a tad bit wider than the 35mm. i had one before and it gives a nice wide view on FF.

Obviously ;) I've always shot my landscapes with my 28mm Zuiko on a crop so that's what I'm used to - I really think 35mm will be wide enough actually, since it's wider than 28mm on a crop.

Yeah I know, but I like the perspective wider angles give me!

That's really sharp for 1/20th, congrats.

For me on full frame I have been pretty happy the past year with a 3 lens set 35mm, 50mm, and 135mm. It's a really nice prime set but after a year I am kinda yearning for a little bit wider and a little bit longer. I was thinking about picking up a 24mm Zubiko and a 180/200 or 300 lens once I get the funds but for most purposes I put my 50mm Ziess on my camera and call it a day because it is that great of a lens. I will probably mess around a bit more with focal lengths so I can tailor my kit to what I want to shoot but overall I am really happy with the set up I have.

24mm on crop is pretty good, more or less what 35mm is on FF. In fact when I still had my crop body, my 24mm Sigma almost never left the body. :)


A good photographer can take extraordinary photos anywhere, with any camera and any lens while a mediocre one will take mediocre ones everywhere, with every camera and every lens.
Never limit yourself with what others think you should do. Shoot what you find interesting, exactly the way you want to.

I think our shooting is pretty similar. I tend to slap on a lens and just wing it with that.

I'm VERY impressed with these! That last one is absolutely gorgeous! I shot a couple random things today with the Leica Summicron-R on my 5D. Very happy with the results so far. :)
