Samyang AF 75 mm f/1.8 FE

7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

Unfortunately the tested Samyang cannot be praised for coma correction. At the maximum relative aperture that aberration appears already in the corner of the APS-C sensor and in the corner of full frame its level is really high. Luckily the problem decreases noticeably on stopping down the aperture by 1 EV but still, it must be said in this category the Samyang lags behind the Sony FE 1.8/85.

Astigmatism, understood as an average difference between horizontal and vertical MTF50 function values, amounted to 6.7% and we consider it to be a low level, not giving you any reasons to complain.

Out-of-focus images are really nice. The light spread in the circles is even, without any local extremes. Even a lighter rim that appears after a more significant stopping down is not especially intensive. Mechanical vignetting is a problem for a change, as it remains visible even on stopping down the lens by 2 EV.
