Excerpt: I have had good results using this lens for milky way and meteorite photos. Great lens for the price. I use it with the Sony a7m2. Manual focus and aperture are fine for the way I use this lens.
Excerpt: I had to return mine because it was de centered. However, the previous one that I had with my Nikon was five stars. Colors were great and it was super sharp through the entire frame at every F-stop.
Summary: Attached is my first image with this lens. An extreme wide shot of the Sagitarius section of our galaxy pivoting on the tail of Scorpious in the lower right. This was a test of my new Samyang 14mm F2.8 lens on a Canon Rebel T4i ...and it's a keeper.
Excerpt: Fairly giant, didn't seem much different from the 17mm canon FD I was using in terms of FOV. Definitely has nice image quality, though it didn't wow me. Focusing was what you would expect for all manual, not sure why there are no distance scale / depth of field scale on it.
Excerpt: Good value. Fstop hard to see. Must use light meter. I was looking for value for a specific application. This lens does ok. A lot of compromise . Do it over? Nope. I would opt for canon 17-40/ f4 or another. Takes a lot of time for set up. More than my hasselbld.
Summary: I had read the reports and reviews on the web that said just how sharp the Samyang is, and even DXo's own scores which rated it very highly. A trip to Wales loomed large and I needed an ultra wide for my style of photography on the rtip, but could not run to my favourite lens of all time, the Nikkor...
Excerpt: Je me suis quasiment équipé que chez Samyang, en tant que professionnel de l'image, un grand angle a 2.8 pour un 7D a ce prix, ca fait plaisir. mais quel deception (ma seule chez samyang), le piqué de l'image n'est pas au rendez vous.
