  • I think it will all depend, just how good is it. There is FE35/2.8, Loxia and few MF lenses, so, considering its high price, it better be outstanding to be popular. As for me, weight, size and ...

  • Replied in My decision
    Yes, even without adapter is around 130g. more. If you add hood, which already on FD 135 difference is even bigger.

    You mean Zeiss APO 135/2? If so, I had it, and it was much better than EF 135L. Microcontrast and colors were better then Canon to me. If I had to put them in order, I would put Zeiss, Samyang, ...
  • Replied in My decision
    Thank you for adding it here. That concur with my observation. When I first got Canon FD, I was surprised how close it was to EF 135, which I owned before. I always though of EF 135L as a very ...
  • Replied in My decision
    Thank you all for your comments. Glad you find this comparison helpful. Although I only have this lens for couple days, I will keep it. Only minus of it is the size/weight. As is only 130g. ...
  • Here are some shots comparing size and weight. Samyang is beastly looking lens on a7R, while putting it on tripod, it seems is very close to tip it over. It reminds me of EF 135L. Funny thing, ...
  • As per advice of SQL guy, I uploaded images from PC. So here are the large version of it, 6500x4338 FD-01 SY-01 FD-02 SY-02 FD-03 SY-03 FD-04 SY-04
  • Thanks for taking time for this in-depth analysis. Just one point, in E-mount Samyang is as dumb as Canon, there is no communication with camera at all
  • "Image too large, maximum 30000px along an edge, 20MP total." Is the message I am getting when try to upload. Weird thing is, I resize the image to 6500x4338 and is about 11 MB in size. So, why I ...
  • Is late here already, I will play with it tomorrow, will see if I can upload something bigger than that
  • Largest file allow to upload have to be either below 20MB and max 3000 px. I uploaded them at 3000x2000 px, so if you click on any, you can see it in max resolution allow to upload here.
  • Created discussions FD 135 and SY 135 compared
    Being in Korea, I have a chance to get Samyang 135/2 and compare it with Canon FD 135/2. Size and weight: Canon is smaller, shorted and lighter (by about 130 g, depending on FD-NEX adapter). ...

  • I used it before on 5D3 with few EF primes. It worked very well, AF slow, but that was expected. Only minus of this adapter for me was the flimsy tripod mount, my was wobbly and I wouldn't ...

    I to does come with both, however the lens cap is in the center of the hood, so if you remove the hood, you will need larger lens cap to cover the front of the lens.
