  • Excerpt: I broke new ground with this purchase; buying a 3rd party lens. Well, not entirely true, I do have a vintage soviet lens but that's an entirely different purpose lens. My main interest is landscape, waterscape, night and some astrophotography, aurora borealis, nature, macro, some architecture, etc.
  • Pros: Close focusing, Excellent Rendering, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Nice Focusing Ring
  • Cons: Cheap Construction, Not chipped

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens for a Nikon body and the performance of the lens has been stellar. I'm big into low light photography and am always looking at lenses that offer the best f stop range, so when I saw that this was an f/1.4 I knew I had to check it out. It works great.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Low Light, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

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...
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Astro-image Star Stretch

Excellent results - but would I buy this lens?

  • Summary: First impressions are that this is a well made, good quality lens; although quite large at around 102mm long and not light at 680g. In use the initial impressions are confirmed, it is capable of taking good quality, sharp pictures.

  • Excerpt: Deze lens is door zijn handmatige instelbaarheid zeer geschikt voor gescripte video-opnames en fotografie vanaf statief. Samen met een goede variabele ND-filter (ik kocht de Heliopan) zijn mooie onscherpe achtergronden te creeren.
