Tamron 90mm f2.8 Di or Samyung 85mmf1.4 IF UMC. One or the other...
Nov 2, 2011

Owning the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D and 35mm f1.8G, i was looking for a longer prime and am deciding between these two. Understandably, the Samyang is MF only but the later chipped versions for metering address a concern from the earlier releases. While I'm not doing a lot of macro, the Tammy reviews from the common sites are favorable for general use including, naturally,portraiture . The Samyung intrigues me... the lack of AF is not a deal killer, just looking at the IQ of these two lenses)I'd love to hear feedback from those who've used the Samyung. It's a fraction of the cost of like primes, and it also seems to get very nice reviews. Both about same price. Thoughts? (D90)
