Samsung NX 85mm f/1.4 ED SSA Reviews

Photozone reviews the Samsung NX 85mm f/1.4 ED SSA and writes;
“The Samsung NX 85mm f/1.4 ED SSA is certainly a highlight among all mirrorless lens offerings. The optical performance of the lens is very impressive. It is already sharp at f/1.4 and that’s including the difficult corner region. Stopped down the center quality is excellent and the borders/corners reach very good levels.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Ephotozine reviews the Samsung NX 85mm f/1.4 ED SSA and writes;
“The sharpness this lens delivers is excellent, and although the price may be high when compared to other Samsung NX lenses, it isn’t when compared to 85mm f/1.4 lenses from the likes of Nikon or Sony. Those looking for an excellent quality telephoto lens for their NX system camera, ideally suited for low light shooting and for creating shallow depth of field effects, as you may do when taking portraits, might not have that many options to choose from.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMAG reviews the Samsung NX 85mm f/1.4 ED SSA and writes;
“If you’re willing to carry it with you, the Samsung 85mm f/1.4 ED NX is worth its high price. Images are very sharp across the board, and the ability to shoot at such a fast aperture makes it possible to really control depth of field and to shoot in varying amounts of light.”
Rating: ★★★★☆
