Samyang 24mm f/3.5 ED Tilt-Shift in Stock
« on: May 06, 2013, 12:02:21 PM »

Limited quantities

B&H Photo has stock of the new Samyang 24mm f/3.5 ED tilt-shift lens. The lens retails for $999 USD.


Roger at LensRentals.com did a first look resolution test on the new tilt-shift and found it to be a solid performer for the money. The Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II is definitely better, but you also pay twice as much.

This lens definitely has interested me. Glad to see it's at least fairly decent, resolution-wise, to the Canon 24 T-S. I'd hoped it would be a bit closer, especially at the larger apertures. If the other reviews on the Tilt and Shift functionality are positive, I think I'll be looking to add this to my lens collection at some point in time, maybe after it's been in the wild long enough that the price might come down a bit.

According to Lensrentals test, the Samyang has even less resolution than Canon 24-105, nevermind the Canon TS-E.  Samyang's much-higher barrel distortion of 2.3% vs. 0.9% for the Canon is also concerning.  Oh, well, I guess my TS-E 24 II is not going anywhere soon.  I was secretly hoping the Samyang would come close, enabling me to sell it to free up some funds, but I don't think so..

Meh...

For 1,000 it is too expensive for a toy but does not have the resolution to compete with the big boys.  I would purchase a used TSE 24L over this any day of the week.

Me so sad. I was hoping that it might be a worthy consideration to the canon.  Anyone else noted the bulbous front lens element?

Why is that a concern?  It looks recessed enough and the front part of the housing has threads.  According to B&H's website, it takes 82mm filters.

I'll wait for the price to go down a little bit...  $700 should be cheap enough for me to acquire.

+1 ... Yes it is recessed, I bought a 82mm B+W XS-Pro UV filter for the Rokinon 24mm Tilt-Shift lens.

I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. I was hoping it to reach the Canikon level of performance at f/5.6 maybe.

However, their 24mm (non TS) is maybe the weakest or at least the most controversial of their lineup. Hopefully they'll do a better 90/2.8 or something like that.

I see that The Digital Picture now has sample images as well.  They were polite in describing the disappointing images.

Totally disappointing performance...  Thanks for posting.  I hope they release Mark II.
