Hello everyone,

I'm a beginner/hobbyist videographer,I'm approaching to these affordable cine lenses: Samyang and Rokinon DS.

What I want to ask for help here is the comparison between the two. Samyang currently offers only one (again) affordable lenses production line whereas Rokinon has two: nonDS and DS, and because the Rokinon DS lenses make slightly better quality compared to Rokinon nonDS ones so I'm gonna go straight to the comparison between Samyang vs. Rokinon DS. Any thoughts?

Thanks a lot,


Samyang lenses are sold under various brand names, including Vivitar, Falcon, Rokinon, Walimex, Bower, Opteka, Bell and Howell, Polar, and Pro-Optic. In 2004 Samyang merged with the Japanese CCTV optical devices maker Seikou.
