Verdict: This lens offers very smooth focusing, though it is manual. It’s super sharp at f/2.8 and certainly rivals other lenses in this respect. The features of this lens are quite basic but it does what it says on the tin.

LensTip.com

The Samyang 100 mm f/2.8 ED UMC MACRO is undoubtedly a quite good lens. The problem? It’s hardly enough, especially if you take into account the fierce competition in this segment and its price, about 1800 PLN.

This 100mm macro lens from Samyang is a very good lens indeed. It delivers sharp images, with low CA and distortion. Focusing is smooth and build quality is good also. Taking the excellent performance of this lens into account, it seems a shame that this lens is priced as it is.

At a hefty 730g, this aluminium alloy lens is the third heaviest and second longest in test , owing to its whopping 15 elements in 12 groups. Historically, Samyang has favoured all-manual lenses, making them a great choice for serious videographers, and the same is true here, except for the...

Used at weddings for the wedding ring shots, on an X-H1 body, it produces sharp images when mounted on a tripod and IS turned off. I personally enjoy the manual operation and it's a considerable saving over Fuji XF 80mm if you can live without the OIS and autofocus.

This lens is amazing, great value, sharp as hell. cannot complain abut anything. You need to be good at manual focus and ideally need to use a tripod to get crisp sharp images.

I had been looking for a "proper" macro lens for my Fuji set-up, coming from Nikon with 200mm Macro in the past. I have the 60mm Fuji Macro but find it difficult to use (auto-focus is slow and manual focus is a pain). I stumbled across this lens in a G+ post and bought one immediately.

I needed a macro lens to start a project on make-up artistry and naturally went for this one as I already own the 8mm fisheye from this brand. These are very unexpensives for the quality and the results we are getting from it.

I purchased this lens for my Sony A7 as I wanted a good macro lens. This lens is sharp and works well with the A7. Put the camera in aperture mode and set the ISO to what you want (do not use auto ISO) and the camera will get the correct exposure.

IQ is fantastic. Images are sharp and crispy with plenty of contrast and color. Build quality is great. All mechanical parts have a good quality feel - focus ring is smooth and has the right amount of resistance and the aperture ring clicks nicely.

Great lens for price - doubles as portrait

For macro, this is an ideal manual lens. Lightweight, easy to focus. Very sharp detailed pictures
