AF 45mm F1.8 FE Review

A portrait lens? A landscape lens? Both! Daniel Fischer 2019-05-13
AF 45mm F1.8 FE – A portrait lens? A landscape lens? Both!



This was my first time shooting with a 45mm lens so I did not know what to expect. First off: it is by far the most compact and lightweight lens I have ever seen.



So I put it on my Sony a7rii and climbed a mountain – in the dark of course.

Shooting in the dark? No problem with this lens! Open the aperture, raise the ISO and trust Sony`s Steady Shot and the AF of this lens.
Climbing mountains as a photographer is an interesting story: with every mountain you climb, you get a different mountainscape, another perspective. Other summits appear, become goals and the story continues.
In the mountains, mountain equipment is mandatory. With this lens you can save a lot of weight and use your energy for more important things such as safe ascent/descent, exploration of the area and composition.

On top of a mountain you have a great view. Often you can see other summits, but they are not spectacular with a wide-angle lens. That’s when this lens shines - with 45mm you get the best out of these summits while bringing in the landscape as well. Plus you can take portrait shots of your buddies by opening the aperture and creating nice bokeh!

“The best camera is the one you have with you” is a famous quote, but it is so true. You just go for a walk and suddenly there is a unique moment, but you left your camera at home. Combine the Samyang 45mm F1.8 FE with Sony`s mirrorless cameras and this is never going to happen to you again. Just put it in the pocket of your jacket and you can take a shot of a beautiful butterfly in the field or some wild deer running at blue hour.
