Pros: Amazing angle of view, Ultra ultra wide, sharp, compact, build, 2.8.

Cons: Fully manual lens, no AF confirm, no exif.

Opinion: This is an excellent fish-eye lens! This is one of the widest lenses for full frame in the world, regardless of cost. It produces punchy, contrasty sharp images. Although other fish-eye lenses offer a 180 degree diagonal view, this offers a wider view on the horizontal and vertical axis. Distortion not as pronounced as with canon fish-eye lenses as it uses a different more subtle image projection. The manual focus is really not an issue. When focusing at close distance, you can easily detect the sharp focus by eye. When focusing at medium and far distances, just use the focus scale. Because this lens is so wide, the depth of field is huge, aiding a mis-focused shot quite a lot. An example of this; if shooting at f5.6 at 12mm on FF, the image will be sharp from 0.4433m to infinity. The lens focuses to 0.2m. So basically everything will be in focus. The mechanical construction is quite good and resembles the Samyang 8mm lens. All in all a great product, which is significantly cheaper than alternatives.

Pros: Sharpness, no vignetting, low weight and minimum size

Cons: for that amount ... no cons

Opinion: I have this lens for a few weeks, taken with native Sony attack, I am using it on an A7Riii, the automatisms are missing, but in manual focus Sony helps a lot with red tracking. From his best in architectural shots, I was surprised by his really precise angle of view to the outer limit. It is a very bright lens and this helps. I reserve the right to add something about how she works outdoors, but to date I am fully satisfied. The price ... last but not least it is relatively low and allows you to take off the whim of having a 12mm that perhaps is not an "indispensable" lens.

Pros: Many qualities:price quality of used materials, excellent night sharpness.

Cons: Very but very cumbersome, it is not so easy to manage it

Opinion: I would like to say that my opinion is the result of the use of a couple of hours and at night. The quality of the files at night is very good. The materials used give that feeling of a lens of excellent workmanship. I find it very but very cumbersome, used with Canon 6D the results are amazing, but it is not easy to manage it. As far as I am concerned, I am very satisfied. Vote8.

Pros: Many merits: sharpness, decidedly good perceived construction quality, weight in the norm, high cost value, flare almost absent.

Cons: Poorly frictioned focus, front lens size and its vulnerability due to impossibility of mounting security filter. With the supplied cap you can defend yourself from raindrops and dust, because practical to assemble, but being very bulky, you need a nice pocket to store it to the need.

Opinion: Recently purchased, I immediately enjoyed using it to discover its potential. I was very surprised at its quality and the reduced distortion. In landscape photos, mainly used in hyperfocal, you can totally forget about the focus for the great depth of field it offers. With the Sony a7II on M, exposure control is also easy and, once the diaphragm is chosen, the times are easily selected for correct exposure, which are also visible and controllable in the crosshairs. What to say, a great goal, recommended! For me I vote 9.5 because 10 is not given until perfectly.

Pros: Sharpness, almost total absence of flares, colors, covered field angle, construction, basically almost everything.

Cons: Focus ring a little too little clutched, cap.

Opinion: After the positive experience of the 8mm fisheye Samyang, sold alas, when I took off the Canon 80D to switch to only FF bodies, and the bad experience with the 14mm MF Rokinon (Samyang for the American market), I bought this optics in the hope of being able to retry the pleasure experienced with aps-c. Luckily for me, or perhaps because it comes from Fowa, it was a great surprise to find that it is well beyond the performance of the 8mm, as it is already usable f2.8 with excellent results at f4.0 and exceptional over the entire frame at f5.6. The flare, present in the 8mm, in this 12mm is almost completely absent and when it is present it is very invasive. The construction is good and without games, moreover the MF ring was precise in the distance indications but a little too fluid, I would have preferred it a little more dampened. Certainly better than the other two objectives of the same house That I had, in which I had to adjust the MF ring to have reliable indications or the 14mm that had games to the fixed lampshed and the frontal optical group inside, as well as to the MF ring. The only exception to the good construction of this realization is the cap, which compared to that of both the 8mm and the 14mm is unstable and with a lot of play, so much so that I had to glue leather thicknesses inside to reduce its wobbly. The colors are the ones that made me appreciate the previous fisheye and offers a unique stereographic projection, different and more uniform than other tried fisheyes. Used for mainly hyperfocal panoramas, it guarantees operational speed and excellent results, for more precise focus, better to rely on the live view with 10x monitor magnification. Satisfied with the purchase and naturally recommended product if you like the kind of photographs it returns.
