My Dji Magic Air first flight test

It was cool, it was yesterday, it was pretty windy and it was my very first outing with the Dji Mavic Air

Well …. it was also my very first flight as a pilot. So, with a little editing, a lot of cuts, a nice music and a little rhythm and 3 effects to catch up, it gives that:

A new Samyang envy … 50mm 1.2 or 85mm 1.4 ?

As I told you in January, I gave my X-T20 the Samyang 12mm lens and I’m particularly happy with it.

Some photos have been reused by the Departmental Committee of Tourism of Haute-Garonne on Twitter:

Although this lens is entirely manual, I do not find it particular problem concerning the focusing. I use for this the Focus Peaking proposed by the X-T20 (in red highlight) and it works like a charm. For those who do not know, it is Damien Bernal (read his article on this subject) who will take care of the explanation (in french):

On the other hand, will you say, a 12mm for landscape, it is relatively easy to focus? I agree.

With this very good experience, the manufacturing quality of the lens and bringing all this to the fact that it really does not cost an armor, I start to make eyes soft to 2 new optics from Samyang, always for my Fujifilm

At first I had been interested by the 85mm F/1.4, available from eGlobalCentral at € 208 (currently) or $274.85 @ Amazon.

But after some tests, I find the focal length of 85mm (equivalent 125 mm) too tight for portraits. I have to go back too far to have a frame a little wide of the subject indoors. It will probably be my 3rd goal Samyang but, for now, I think twist to another.

And to get a little closer to the subject (my photos but also this post), I searched – and particularly appreciated – the photos taken with the Samyang 50mm F1.2.

Some photos taken with this this lens on flickr:

It has the second advantage of a little more of aperture than the 85mm: 1.2 against 1.4. As a reminder, at this focal length with my 18-55 my 50-230, I have only F4.0. Having 1.2 to 50mm will be a big plus for portraits or tight shots. The test from focus-numerique, which I invite you to read will have convinced me to take the plunge, because the last argument is that of the price, once more: The 50mm is currently at 317 € at eGlobalCentral and at $387.55 @ Amazon.
Feel free to leave me your opinion, if you have one or the other !!

I leave you with some pictures that I can take with the Samyang 12mm:
