Incredible lens for the money

  • Excerpt: I have the lens a little over a year now. So I can give a fairly accurate review. I have used theis lens on my Canon with adapter, a Nikon D600, Red One MX and an Epic. If you use this lens with an APS-C sensor like all of the above with the exception of the D600. It is sharp corner to corner. Dome light fall off until but completely gone by F/4 at F/5.6 this lens is sharp and amazing. I used it the Red One MX on an exterior shoot.
  • Pros: Close Focus, Consistent Output, Great bokeh, Price, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Sustainable To Lens Flare

Nice lens but not as good as expected

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens primarily for astro-imaging after acquiring the Bower 8mm and Samyang 85mm; both of which yield great stars edge-to-edge on an APS-C sensor. The 24mm lens is not as good BUT still usable if one doesn't mind knocking 10% off the edges... If is, however, a very nice portrait lens!
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Astro-image Star Stretch

  • Excerpt: Got the lens in 4 months ago. good price for a fast wide angle lens. tight manual focus ring and good center sharpness when wide open. Howerver, what you get is what you paid: I found right side back focused after get lens alignment kit. I send it to Elite Brands (US importer?) to get repaired. I got a replacement lens after a week and I was very disappointed to find that the replacement lens is not new and has scratch marks on front glass.

  • Excerpt: Сам по себе объектив очень нравиться, но требует тщательной фокусировки и выбора диафрагмы очень легко промахнуться с фокусом особенно на растояниях больше двух трех метров (пользуюсь приближением в Live View), и на открытой диафрагме очень узкий ГРИП.
  • Pros: Светосила, красивое бокэ, резкий, надежная конструкция.
  • Cons: Отсутствие автофокуса и стабилизатора, короткий ход кольца фокусировки на расстояниях больше метра.

  • Excerpt: Отличный полнокадровый ширик, резкий уже на открытой, причем не только по центру, края также очень и очень хороши. Отлично справляется с контровым светом. Присутствует дисторсия, но она практически не заметна. На открытой заметно виньетирование. Ход кольца фокусировки большой и плавный, наводиться одно удовольствие.
  • Pros: Отличная резкость на открытой, светосила, мягкий ход кольца фокусировки, неплохое боке, вес, цена
  • Cons: не сильная дисторсия, отсутствие датчика подтверждения фокусировки на кэноновских экземплярах, пришлось докупать отдельно и клеить самостоятельно

  • Excerpt: Надежный качественно выполненный конструктив, тактильно приятный, ход кольца фокусировки плавный. Все детали подогнаны точно без люфта и зазоров. Установленный корейский чип позволяет управлять диафрагмой с ф/а, , но во многом уступает "одуванчику" Лушникова.
  • Pros: Светосила 1,4 и широкий угол.
  • Cons: Тяжелый и громоздкий.
