canons vs. samyangs. are they close to matching each other

PostWed Dec 19, 2012 3:41 pm

hi everyone,
the day after tomorrow (OMG) I'll be shooting a short with samyang 35, samyang 85, takumar 55, canon 16-35 l, canon 70-200 l.

the takumar and samyangs matches really good. but I am not sure about canons.

what do you think ?

I don't have my BMCC yet, but I've used my Rokinon (samyang) 14mm T-3.1 Cine on my 60D.

I love the Rokinon 14mm!.. It does have a different vibe than the sigma and canon lenses I own. it feels like it has a warmer rendition of colors than the canon/sigma's. it gives you the image depth and high detail but with a more organic look compared to the tack sharpness of my sigma or canon lenses. If you are used to using photographic lenses you will have to get used to the longer radius of the focus ring on the Rokinon Cine lens. I believe I've read it has a 270 degree turn radius. I got used to it pretty quickly. I really look forward to pairing this lens with the BMCC.. and I'll also be picking up the Rokinon 8mm Cine lens for those wide shots!

thanks guys! I ordered samyang 14 and 24 but they won't be arrive before shooting and I have to use canon 16-35 L instead of them... Infact, I am so sad about that... I'll check the links above to get an idea about how they matches..

I just wrapped a film on the Black magic and used primarily the 24mm and the 35mm...

AMAZING LENSES! Sharp, and of course the manual aperture saved the day. There is a slight red hue to them but shooting raw, this is nothing. They are slightly soft wide open but are sharpest between 4 and 2.8.

check out our page to see them in action
