10. Focusing

Focusing of the Samyang is completely manual and is facilitated by use of a comfortable ridged ring, whose smooth movement cannot be faulted. Of course manual focusing is a lot easier if we are equipped with the appropriate focusing screen, or where our body confirms the focus from the manual lens.

Its worth pointing out that the small depth of field at an aperture of f/1.4 requires a great deal of effort on our part if we want to set the focus where we want it. Its worth remembering that when photographing an object at a distance of a few metres, the depth of field measures only a few centimetres.
