What is your 3rd party gem?
Sep 17, 2010

After much research into the Samyang 85 1.4 I am going to pull the trigger. It wasn't until I saw the thread started in this forum a few days ago that I had even heard about this lens. It appears as sharp as the Nikon equivalent (without AF of course) and $700-1000 cheaper depending on version.

This leades me to wonder what other 3rd party gems are out there. I know many on these forums are very brand loyal to Nikon/Canon ect. but I know there are great lenses out there for 1/4 of the price by off-brand manufacturers. I don't make money with my gear at the present time so getting the best bang for my buck is a big deal.

What 3rd party lenses would you not part with?
