Samyang 24mm f1.4 lens
Here are some Fashion Photography / Model Photography example photos using the less known, less raved about, less sharp Samyang 24mm f1.4 lens using my Nikon D800 DSLR in my Coventry UK, studio.
Compared to it’s big brother, the Samyang 85mm f1.4 super sharp manual focus lens, and it’s equally capable siblings, the Samyang 35mm f1.4 and Samyang 14mm f2.8, the 24mm does struggle to compete in terms of sharpness shot wide open. Stopped down a little however, it can produce some very sharp, very rewarding images with a useful focal length for tighter spaces.
I have found it useful for wedding photography when there is not much space and for getting close to your subject as shown in the example below to create a nice shallow DOF.
Here is another example, this time shot at f1.4 using available light
