Well-done, Samyang!

William Bolton, Amazon
18 October 2014
  • Summary: I never thought I'd want to go wider than 24mm but after seeing the photos on the Flickr Samyang 14mm f2.8 page (The lens is badged under different names, including also Bower and Vivitar.), and particularly those of the night sky with stars, I decided to give it a try.

Did not fit on Camera, had to return

Spencer "espencers", Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this lens for night photography, and when I received it, it would not fit on my Sony A7R. I removed my 35MM Sony Lens very easily, and then tried for several minutes to line up the mounting ring on the Rokinon Lens, and it simply did not fit.

Problems with the lens

Norman E. Mitchell, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: The lens is very good and substantially what I wanted. I was disappointed to learn than with my Alpha 330, the lens can only be used in the manual mode. This is not a huge problem, but i was under the impression that it would be fully integrated with my Sony.

Lives up to its reputation

Stepper, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: What a little gem! It's all that the other reviewers say it is. The only things I can add are: 1) buy PTLens software to remove the lens aberrations. PTLens works either as a stand alone or can plug into Paint Shop Pro x5 & x6 (and presumable Photoshop).

Sharp, economical ultra wide

Szu-ping Lee "Ping", Amazon
11 January 2012
  • Summary: Bought this lens to get that super-wide perspective on APC-sized sensor camera (Sony A35). I'm using this lens primarily for landscape, starscape, and indoors. First impressions: 1. This lens is sharp, easily sharper than the Minolta primes and all the Sony zooms I owned.
