Re: Samyang FE 45mm f1.8 Ephotozine review

I've had the Sam 45mm for about 6 months. I love it. It's outstanding in pop and contrast. I have a test that I run on sloped roofs to determine at what aperture does the side sharpness catch up to the center? Answer f4, which is better than average (f5.6 to f8) for my quality lenses.

I've read some autofocus issues, but have not encountered any on either A6400 or A7RIV.

Also, the manual focus experience is one of the best of my AF lenses.

However I succumbed to rave reviews of the new Sigma 45/2.8 "Contemporary".  Imatest results are very high.  It's due to arrive in a few days.
