The image quality is incredible.
radresident
The hyperfocal distance is short enough so that the depth of field is large enough to make focusing doable in most situations.
hafnon
Optics are surprisingly sharp and it really opens up wide!

I tested this lens using an USAF 1951 lens chart. This lens actually hits the Nyquist limit of my camera sensor, 92 lp/mm, at the f/2.0 f-stop. It is as sharp at f/1.4 where some of my other lens will peak. Which is very impressive for the price of this lens. I should add that I am a low budget photographer, and do not own any overly pricey lenses. I was not overly thorough in my lens testing. I did not construct a full Modulation Transfer Curve (MTF) chart for this lens. This makes my lens testing useless in comparing to other lenses.

Manually focusing a 35mm lens is not overly difficult. The hyperfocal distance is short enough so that the depth of field is large enough to make focusing doable in most situations. I would not recommend using a longer manual focus lens if you need to focus on subjects quickly, but 35mm should not be too big a problem. Another good hint to using a manual focus lens is to focus ahead of time where you think the item is going to be and wait for it to move there. If you want to take impromptu photos at an event, this lens would not be appropriate.

The lens is 670g and protrudes out 120mm from the camera. I measured the entrance pupil to be 68mm from the lens mount of the camera. I consider my entrance pupil measurement to be close enough and not highly accurate.

Style Name: Canon
The image quality is incredible. I have also owned the Canon 35mm 1.4. The chromatic abberation/color fringing is better controlled on this lens. Very sharp at 1.4. Bokeh is great. The only downside is the manual focusing, but I think it is worth the cost savings vs the Canon 35 1.4. I use live view and magnify it 10x, and nail the focus every time. This lens is manufactured under 3 different names (Bower, Samyang, and Rokinon). Check out photozone's review at [...] It was tested and found easily superior to the Canon 35mm 1.4! If you can deal with manual focus, highly recommended.

This lens comes under a variety of different names- Samyang, Bower, Rokinon, but its the same lens. Used on my Sony PMW-F3 and AF100 and even my Canon 5D Mark III. I had it cine-adjusted by Duclos Lens in LA and it works great for video. Optics are surprisingly sharp and it really opens up wide! A great buy for stills or video!

The Bower 35mm f/1.4 lens performs as expected. I like the smooth focusing ring but it is pretty difficult to make use of the view finder alone for accurate focusing. I have to mount my Canon 550D/T2i on a tripod and make use of live view function to nail the focus. As most people had found out that this Korean lens does impose an amber tone to the image and this may not be the cup of tea for everybody.
My first copy was defective, there was a creaking noise whenever I turned the focusing ring. I have to return it to Amazon. Amazon sent me the replacement copy quickly and the second copy was perfect.
