Excerpt: As a serious amateur landscape photographer, I find this lens to be an excellent choice. It yields razor sharp imagery with extreme depth of field on my D800E. This lens is one of the best price to value propositions on the market today.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Excellent sharpness, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a rare combination of quality imaging, value and speed. Nothing else comes close. Is the lens perfect?. No lens is perfect but this lens is better than lenses costing far more. In addition, I was able to find and download a free Adobe Lens Profile file for this lens that corrected distortion in Photo Shop and Lightroom. If you like super-wide images, you will like this lens.
Pros: Easily Corrected, Good Construction, Good Contrast, Low Light Capability, Sharp, Superior Performance
Excerpt: Bravo Rokinon. Thank you for making a lens for the masses that is of such quality. I can't wait to see what else you bring to the FE lens ecosystem. For those wondering this lens is a full frame lens. When Rokinon released this lens for the NEX they actually designed the lens to cover a full frame sensor. The images that come out of this thing are outstanding.
Summary: I bought this lens because of the very good value for money and image quality. The purpose of this purchase: interesting, beautiful landscapes and HDR just unusual for wide angle shots. I shot on the Canon 17-40 F4 Lens. I will say that Samyang 14mm F/2.8 MF UMC I liked and viewing angle and sharpness. A big plus is the price of lenses at this level. Negative side version for Canon cameras - this is not the correct focus distance scale.
Amazing value Great for photo, even better for video

Summary: I've seen this lense used by many photographers, especially online. Here's the deal, if you're looking for a wide angle lense at a low price and worth every penny, don't keep looking, you won't find another. Pros: Awesome optics, images are clean, very sharp when stopped down around 5.6 or 8 (even quite sharp wide open), great smooth focus, solid feel, beautiful form factor.
