Traditionally, if you want the best quality images, you have to invest a lot of money in very expensive lenses. However, there are a few budget gems out there, and they can give you sharp images while saving you a boatload of cash. This fantastic video takes a look at two such lenses, the Samyang XP 85mm f/1.2 and 135mm f/2.0 ED UMC, and if they can keep up with the demands of modern high-resolution sensors.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this great video takes a look at the Samyang XP 85mm f/1.2 and 135mm f/2.0 ED UMC lenses, specifically if they can keep up with the demands of a high-resolution camera like the Canon EOS R5. Samyang lenses are traditionally known for being extremely sharp lenses that are very affordable, mostly because they generally do not offer autofocus. However, if you are working with them on a camera like the R5, you get the benefits of mirrorless manual focusing assistance features, so unless you are capturing fast action, they can still be a good choice that will save you a lot of money. Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts on both lenses.
