09 Aug Samyang / Rokinon 50mm f/1.2 CS review (Fuji X, Sony E, Canon M, Micro Four Thirds)

Source: Mirror Lessons

Much like the 21mm 1.4 that we reviewed recently, the 50mm 1.2 is part of the CS line-up of manual focus lenses designed for mirrorless cameras by the Korean brand Samyang. In our comparison with the Fujinon 56mm 1.2, the lens left the battlefield with a few broken bones. However, since I spent a long time with the lens, I decided to share a more complete article with more images. Let’s see if this 50mm can still be a interesting choice for Fuji X and mirrorless users in general despite its flaws.

Important note: The 50mm f/1.2 is available for Fuji X, Sony E, Canon M and Micro Four Thirds mounts. I tested the Fuji X version but the optical quality remains the same for all versions. Only the field of view changes on a Micro Four Thirds camera because of the smaller sensor (100mm equivalent). The weight and length of the lens varies a little bit as well. In select countries the product is sold with the Rokinon name instead of Samyang.
