Re: New Samyang 75mm f/1.8 FE lens

To clarify, I assume there are some compromises with a lens that small. It's incredibly much smaller and lighter than a 85mm f1.8, and even than a Sigma 65mm f2.

Of course, weight doesn't mean quality, but I guess they have made some trade-offs. Likewise, the price being quite low, I assume there has been some costs that have been cut.

There are some things that I can live with (plastic barrel, no weather sealing etc.) but I wonder how much this has an impact on image quality.
