Pros: Price

Cons: Little sharpness

Opinion: I bought this lens on Saturday 8/6/2019 I brought it back to the shopkeeper Tuesday 11/6/2019 (who kindly resumed it without problems) after doing a dozen test shots, I could see that my expectations were greater, cheap is true. In order to use the filters it is necessary to assemble a bulky holder and the relative filters cost much more than screw filters. I will have been unlucky because reading the various reviews, the majority are satisfied.

Pros: Excellent yield with a very low priced construction accurate and robust

Cons: Heavy and cumbersome, especially my version (Sony and mount) that pays the increase in weight and size due to adaptation from Reflex (native) to ML

Opinion: Lens taken on Amazon Warehouse and paid about half the normal price, 5 year Fowa warranty and pretty much perfect. The yield a little "moscia" at full aperture already improves to 4 and 5.6 is excellent. The "whisker" distortion is quite flashy but correctable in a moment in PP, however it can be annoying only in architecture, but you notice little or nothing in panoramas and street. The focus is not easy because given the focal length very short, it always looks all in focus, so you have to work at aperture all open, helping with peakng focus and magnification and go back and forth looking for the maximum sharpness point. The focus is not calibrated perfectly, in my case the distant subjects go to kelp enough before the infinity, it is not serious, it would be much worse the opposite. I am undecided whether to keep it so, in the end, given the enormous depth of field, it is not so important to fix it, calibrate it from me, since I found a tutorial on the net, but risking to invalidate the warranty, or send it in Fowa. However it is a very nice, creative, good performance and well done object.

Pros: The Price and the lightness

Cons: Little Flare sharpness at 2.8

Opinion: I tried this lens and I can say that the difference with the 14-24 Nikkkor to 14 mm is abysmal both at full aperture and in the intermediate diaphragms, starts to be acceptable from 5.6 onwards, it will be a bad copy but all this decated sharpness I have not seen Just and the price is confirmation, I saw a test later I do not remember in which site and my opinion was not wrong.

Pros: Q-P ratio, weight, sharpness, brightness, lightness

Cons: Use of filters, some flare in backlight.

Opinion: Perfect optics for my amateur needs, mounted on FF. I really like the rendering of the images, I find it precise and sharp. Obviously the sharpness drops to the edges, but for the views that shot is not a problem at all. Simple the management of the focus in manual, you often work in hyperfocal, solving a good part of the problems. Light, it's easy to use. Integrated lens hood, which prevents you from mounting the filters without an adapter, even if you personally do not use them. Optics recommended without any doubt.

Pros: general product quality, sharpness, materials, lightness, price.

Cons: Analyzing the product, Nesuno.

Opinion: I think it's one of the best fixed-focal wide-angle product. True, it has manual focus, but you choose it for that, otherwise you would opt for something else. It's very precise and crisp, and if you shoot the manual once you've learned how to handle manual focus, it's a lot of fun. Excellent and almost unparalleled to photograph panoramas from having to include as much as possible in the scene... to photograph sunsets and above all gives the best of SE to photograph the stars without having to resort to PP.
