This listing is for a Samyang AF 35/2.8 lens, boxed and complete with all original box contents. The lens is designed to cover mirrorles (E-mount) full-frame Sony cameras like the A7 or A9 ranges but works equally well on other E-mount APS-C “crop” cameras like the NEX or A6000/A5000 ranges where it will have a 52mm equivalent focal length.
I bought this new from a UK dealer (Wex) a little over a month ago as a replacement for the similar but much more expensive Zeiss 35/2.8 that had proved slightly disappointing on my A7. The Samyang is smaller, lighter and optically better than the Zeiss in my informal testing: sharper, less vignetting and uncorrected distortion. Other than this quick testing the Samyang is completely unused and indistinguishable from new, as can be seen from the pictures. For reasons I won’t bore you with here I subsequently decided to abandon my brief fling with full-frame and have disposed of the A7 in favour of an APS-C camera so have no need for the Samyang – it works fine on the a6000 I’m currently using but I’ve never been a fan of the “normal” FoV (50mm equiv.), prefering a slightly shorter (or longer!) focal length.
As usual there is no reserve or high starting price, you decide what it’s worth.
Note: there is no “buy it now” option so please don’t ask. I deliver only to the address supplied by Paypal, and all non-UK destinations are handled directly by Ebay on my behalf. If you can’t bid you probably live in a country that Ebay doesn’t currently deliver to and I’m afraid I can’t help.
Bid with confidence; I never knowingly mis-describe an item and use hard illumination to emphasise any defects. It also exaggerates dust particles too… so you’ll almost certainly get an item that is better than it looks in the pictures.
My feedback says it all 🙂
