First, forget about the supplied lens hood, my copy willd not even stay in place and has lots of play. May be Samyang should follow Olympus practice and sell us a $75 lens hood :-)
The lens itself seems well made enough, a tad heavy and oversized even on a full frame body (Canon 5d mk ii).
It is sharp wide open, without that 'foggly glow' and low contrast one can find on Canon's own 50mm at 1.4 and Samyang's 85mm.
My problem is to manually nail focus at my age. The Canon viewfinder does not help either and I have a very low percentage of keepers. It is an operator problem however with the specific camera when taking stills.
If you use it for video in controlled situations, the stepless aperture ring and the cine style focus are of great help on an appropriate video rig. Also image magnification, LCDVF/Loupe and focus aid (colored outline) should negate this problem. Keep in mind that in 4k, the FL equivalent (on Panasonic GH4) will be 365mm if I am not mistaken and in 1080, still rather a long lens at 270mm and would need lots of stability.
As for stills, I'll stick with my Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro L because of the AF. I intend to keep the Samyang for video though and have no reason not to believe glowing reports that it is second only to the Zeiss 135mm which costs $2000 with a $200 lens hood. The Zeiss Apo Sonnar is also MF and the Canon 135mm is slightly over $1000. These do not come in Cine versions. With the Canon, you would need a Metabones type of 'intelligent' adapter to control aperture.
I would recommend the Samyang for video if you have such a need (telephoto). You can use it fot stills if you have deft fingers and better vision than mine. Samyang line of lenses are unbeatable pricewise. I have the Samyang 85mm and 14mm and would eventually acquire other Samyang Cine lenses. Of course, the 14mm is a lot easier to manually focus with in stills photography.
