Fine Pictures in Wide Angle

16 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I want to use this lens for interior, filming and arch. The first time I used it for filming a concert. The fast lens made it possible to get enough light even in low light. There is almost no distortion, so I can work with. It has no auto-focus, as it was described.
  • Pros: Aperture Ring, Focus ring, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Small, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No auto-focus

Lives up to its good reputation

  • Excerpt: I've read lots of reviews of this Samyang/Rokinon /Bower/Bell&Howell 14mm manual focus lens. I purchased mine from B&H to take advantage of their great pricing on the Bowers version. From the first exposure, I've been very pleased. I use manual or aperture priority modes, and they work great.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Great image quality, Great value, Very wide
  • Cons: Requires Manual Technique

Great Aurora Lens

Brento, B&H Photo
11 April 2015
  • Excerpt: Bought this lens for shooting the aurora borealis in Alaska and I was able to capture stunning images of the lights. The 2.8 aperture allowed for faster shutter speeds so the aurora wasn't blurred. The best thing about this lens besides being ultrawide is the coma.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, No Coma Blur, Sharp

Incredible & Affordable Lens

  • Excerpt: I was a bit skeptical about purchasing this lens, I've heard many great reviews, but as a Canon DSLRS user, I was nervous about the difficulty in using a 100% manual lens. The first few shots I hated it, but I decided to test it out over the weekend and thats when I saw the power of this lens.
