Pros: Well made lens gives the impression of sturdiness fixed hood that for this type of lens is obvious

Cons: From my point of view there are none except that it does not have autofocus but given its excursion it is not indispensable.

Opinion: I bought it used at the price of 170.00 euros and I would say that it is a good wide angle, it shows off beautiful images, it needs to have corrections in post production after which it can safely compare with hundreds of euro lenses, the optimal aperture for me is F8 and F 5.6 under which I hardly push, personally I would recommend it to those who know how to use camera raw well.

Pros: price, sharpness, optical quality

Cons: Usual indication on the ring of incorrect focus

Opinion: I think it is an optics that for the purchase price of the used and for its optical qualities should not be missing in the kit of any photographer, amateur or not. Speaking of a 14mm the defects are rather obvious type distortion, little detail and sharpness at the edges at full aperture. Perfect to experiment and always find new shooting points, very interesting and fun for the Street. Personally I never go below F 5.6 and I focus at 0.7m poor and I always have everything in focus with a more than satisfactory sharpness (even at the edges). Soon I will change it simply to switch to the same focal length but with native attachment for my car but I already know that I will regret it! I reiterate that starting from the purchase price of the used is a highly recommended goal!

Pros: Sharpness, price

Cons: distortion

Opinion: For my taste it is an excellent lens, used for a few years has given me great satisfaction. If you want a wide angle pushed at an affordable price it seems difficult to opt for anything else. Really good sharpness and image quality. Vignetting and distortion are easily corrected through the slow profiles present in the software. Advised

Pros: construction

Cons: Everything else in particular focus (inaccurate)

Opinion: I used the reflex version on Z6. It is true that to use certain extreme goals you need an experienced hand, which I do not have, but I do not really understand the positive reviews. I did not appreciate any of this objective. I tried 3 different specimens, 2 with the red ring one with golden ring and found them both mediocre. In my opinion, it makes no sense to spend 200-250eur on such a goal. From a few days to the same figure I took the 16mm of nikon and it is spectacular.

Pros: Very good wide angle at optical level, good sharpness, price without a doubt, opening

Cons: Vignetting and light but correctable distortion, incongruity of the focus indications with reality (the real infinity is about 3 meters written on the ring)

Opinion: Forklift optics suitable for those who want a super wide angle, almost fisheye at a low price but with a good yield. The focus ring is not calibrated well, it is out of phase, the real infinity was where it was written 3 meters. The optics are of quality, the glasses are very precise. For the cost you can not consider defects those listed above and in my opinion they are all there! I sold it for the Sigma 14-24mm with the same opening. Obviously between Sigma and Sammy sigma wins hands down, but let's talk about optics that cost almost 5 times as much ? The extremely low price is given by the absence of electronics absolutely, but for such a focal point it is not a problem. With closed diaphragms (Above the 8) it begins to lose detail but still usable up to 16. I used it in canon version with SIGMA MC-11 adapter on the Sony Alpha 7 II and it was fine.
