Pros: satisfied with the yield, very low weight, die

Cons: nothing to report at the moment. I reserve to add something in the future if necessary edit: very usable to TA, but from the reviews I had read I expected more. slightly closed, sharpness increases sharply. used to fuji lenses I would say that it is not the maximum color rendering, but it settles in pp (or via picture style) in a moment.

Opinion: Bought new in late August 2019, fuji version. Specific date because I carefully studied several reviews and tests, sometimes dated. I do not know if it is a chance or has improved the design of this optics, but it seems fair to point out that: -I tried to take shots at close objects, the lower distances marked on the barrel are accurate. First breath of relief. -With the palpitations active the maximum magnification, point to chimneys at least a hundred meters away, the peaking highlights the contrasting edges. Turning the dial still a few mm the peak does not disappear, I continue until they go out of focus, then go back to a midpoint to catch the cusp of the maf. Shot. I control the dive, it is PLACE ON THE INFINTT. I sigh with relief, I don't move it and do other tests. Later the pc vision will confirm the correct maf a oo. -The dial of distances comes to the meter, for maf between 1 and 3 meters about the correct distance on barrel is between 1 and oo, besides you go directly to infinity (hyperfocal apart of course) -I did not find a "game" between lens and machine body as I expected , does not move at all once hooked. -As you'd expect, the TA top detachment (remember it's f/2) isn't the best for objects that are too close, while at 5.6 it does their best. -Chromatic aberrations sometimes present, but visible to monitors with magnifications well above 100%, easily corrected. On LR (and also CR in theory) is atato added the lens profile for automatic corrections, so nothing more immediate. -It's good-mouthed, but caps and lampshades on my specimen remain in place. They've been tossed for a whole day in the bag, they haven't moved. I do not rule out that wear can make the situation worse, but despite being absolutely critical and prevented after what I read around I must say that after a busy day I was pleasantly amazed. I do not know if the construction protocols have improved, if on the new (less wear) it goes better, or if it is just luck, but I can only recommend it warmly. I reserve the right to return in two months (two scheduled trips in this time frame) to report any deterioration.

Pros: Brightness, construction, sharpness, lampshade

Cons: Personally nothing relevant

Opinion: Taken on Amazon used as new at a price of less than 190 euros is an optic softh of which I am extremely satisfied. Very usable at full opening becomes excellent closing by a couple of stops. The distortion is within the acceptable limits for the focal and if you hold the optics in bubble is still minimal. I am not a lover of hyperfocal use and find the assisted focus on my A6000 very valid. I use it mainly for historic streets and urban locations. I absolutely recommend it if you know and know how to manage the limits of use of wide-angle focal thrusts.

Pros: Crisp, excellent construction, chromatic rendition

Cons: Some flare in adverse conditions

Opinion: Economic lens but from the value for money exceptional, very clear to TA, really minimal distortion despite the focal, pleasant colors, great for night photography as well as landscape. Metal and glass construction, small and well-made, light the right, very smooth and pleasant to use rings. Set to infinity is always all in focus, in case you want to blur the background (possible thanks to the wide aperture and the reduced distance of MAF) to focus closely is a minimum more complicated, because you have to be careful what is in focus and what not , nothing relevant, but when it is more ' ' ' ' ' ' complicated ' ' compared to focal more ' narrow and bright, very useful to enlarge the display and viewfinder in this case. I also noticed some flare too much in backlight, even here nothing important. I would like to have the Fuji 10/24 to be able to compare the yield, this samyang I find it exceptional, highly recommended!

Pros: Light, extraordinarily sharp, irrelevant distortion, saturated color rendition, good flare correction in backlight thanks to the lens hood, excellent value for money.

Cons: On Sony the aperture value is not displayed in the viewfinder and display.

Opinion: Used, all in manual, on Sony a6300 and a7RII (equivalent to an 18mm) produces clean and very beautiful files, both in terms of sharpness and color rendition and three-dimensionality. The manual focus, also thanks to focus peaking is fast and accurate. An ultra wide angle that, used in hyperfocal, allows you to always have everything in focus, from the very first floor to infinity. Indispensable in street photography.

Pros: Opening at f 2.0, light but at the same time not plasticous, good chromatic rendition, price

Cons: Flare, very rigid infinity focus ring adjustable only with peaking and LiveView

Opinion: Bought on Amazon Warehouse deals at €217.00 This lens is very bright, ideal for landscapes is the lens I was looking for on my Olympus OM and M10 Mark II. It allows you to take pictures even with 1/10-1/20 times at full aperture even without tripod since with the body stabilization compensates from fable. Only downside to the flare which is downright annoying rating 8.
