Samyang 135mm T/ 2.2 VDSLR ED UMC

(4 customer reviews)

Samyang 135mm T/ 2.2 VDSLR ED UMC is a camera glass that produces high-quality photographs. It has a wide aperture that allows more light to enter the lens, resulting in brighter images. The lens has a manual focus system, which gives the user more control over the focus. The lens has 9 aperture blades that produce a pleasing bokeh effect. The lens is made up of several lens elements that help to reduce distortion and chromatic aberration. The lens has a special coating that helps to reduce glare and ghosting. The lens is well-built and has a good build quality. The lens has a high resolution that allows for sharp and detailed images. There are other alternatives available in the market, but Samyang 135mm T/ 2.2 VDSLR ED UMC stands out due to its high-quality optics and build quality. The lens takes time to manufacture, but the end result is worth the wait.

I recently got my hands on the Samyang 135mm T/2.2 VDSLR ED UMC lens and I must say, I’m impressed! The lens produces incredibly sharp images with amazing colors that compliment my Black Magic Pocket 6K camera’s color technology perfectly. I also own its smaller siblings (24, 35, 50, 85mm) and they all produce beautiful results. The build quality is impressive with great construction and smooth focusing. I’ve used this lens for both portraits and landscapes, and it has delivered exceptional results in both scenarios.

One minor complaint I have with the lens is the infinity stop not being exactly at the right spot. However, I’ve noticed this to be a recurring issue with all Rokinon lenses, including this one. Although this doesn’t affect the quality of images produced, it can be a little frustrating when trying to achieve a sharper focus, especially when shooting with a wide aperture. It’s not a major issue, but I feel that it could be improved.

Overall, the Samyang 135mm T/2.2 VDSLR ED UMC lens is an outstanding piece of glass that produces sharp, beautiful images with amazing colors. Despite the slightly over infinity stop point, it’s definitely a must-have for photographers and videographers who love vintage lenses. Its build quality and overall performance make it worth the investment and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to take their photography or videography game to the next level.

    Professional quality! Pro quality at a low price has mostly meant buying used lenses. Here’s a pro quality lens with excellent sharpness & contrast that outperforms most pro Canon & Nikon lenses and can be had brand new.
    The negatives: It comes at the cost of full manual operation.
    It is manual focus & does not have aperture integration with digital cameras.
    This is a superior lens with world class quality and a consumer price.

    Great Lenses. Amazing Colour!
    I have been using this and it’s smaller sister lenses (24, 35, 50, 85mm) on my Black Magic Pocket 6K camera and they work beautifully. The Pocket 6K has fantastic colour technology but colour depends on the lens too. These lenses are absolutely wonderful.
    The only thing I don’t appreciate is that the infinity stop is not exactly at the right spot. The excuse for that is that temperature effects the actual stop spot but I think they could have done a better job. I suppose a shim would do the trick but I don’t want to open the lenses… and yes, all of the Rokinon lenses have the same slightly over infinity stop point. It isn’t a deal breaker.
