Pros: Great extreme angle, construction.

Cons: Edges, vignetting, MF only.

Opinion: It is a good lens suitable for those who want to learn how to use these types of extreme focal points. The construction for me is very solid, comparable to the Nikon 20-35 af-d I owned. The ring for the focus is very demultiplied, allows precise fire, is hard and the resistance always pleasant and constant. At f2.8 the edges are obscene, so they must be "hidden" in the composition, so that they do not stand out. In addition, at full opening there is a very pronounced vignette that I sometimes use voluntarily to enclose a certain type of landscape in a natural way. In the center the image is always admissible, at the intermediate diaphragms it is really good. The problem is that the edges do not improve by closing the diaphragm, they are always very scarce. After a few months I realized that it's not the lens for me.

Pros: Focal, robustness, size, price, brightness, indispensable in many situations

Cons: The only one really relevant: impossibility of mounting screw filters

Opinion: After the Canon 100mm Macro, I think that's the lens I love the most. Given the brightness and the focal point, it is used in many situations. If you then add a little creativity you can bring out really unique shots. Of course, accustomed to all recent automatisms, a beginner can give some difficulty to focusing only manual, but life has more difficult challenges from! For the price it is to be had. The biggest flaw is the impossibility of mounting standard filters in case you want to make some long exposure during the day. The distortion is there (it would be strange if it wasn't at 14mm) and it doesn't have to be a flaw, but it has to be managed. Suitable for wide-field astrophotography, landscape, street and interior. At this price I do not think there is anything like it. If you have any doubts, scroll through this page and look at the photos taken with this lens. Not bad eh!

Pros: 14, price, opening, sharpness in the middle

Cons: distortion, yield to edges, focus

Opinion: I had the 10 on aps-c and decided to buy this optics, the overall yield is not bad (colors, flare tightness, sharpness in the center), but bad there is distortion with very stretched and not particularly sharp edges, a perhaps more accentuated curvature that make focus more difficult (more than I thought) at a constructive level seems very solid anyway.

Pros: Price, lightness

Cons: Borders, Focus

Opinion: Taking into account the price the rating can not be too low, it is a great "school ship" for those who venture into the world of super-wide, all open has not too good edges while making more or less consistently well in the center, at all openings. From f5.6 onwards it starts to improve on the edges but not significantly. The distortion is very pronounced, but at this price one can expect it. The construction is good in my opinion, it looks very solid. To improve the metric scale on the barrel: working in hyperfocal using only metric references is almost impossible, you have to resort to the machine's viewfinder/screen to know the exact distance (always if the machine on which you mount it supports it)

Pros: Price, sharpness already from f4,wide-field astronomy

Cons: Distortion,inability to mount circular screw filters,some models do not come out of the factory just as they should ,fixed plastic lamp in my opinion not too resistant,size for sony E

Opinion: Used for more than one harvest, I've tested it in a variety of situations including, mountain, astronomy, urban night wildscape nights, there's little to say for what it costs offers a truly appreciable snap experience. I immediately want to start from a very large defect that afflicts this lens, or rather some lenses,unfortunately one of the most well-known problems of the samyang 14mm not AF is just the dial of the focus,unfortunately some models come out of the factory with the dislodle, therefore maybe you are on the focus at 3m but at the actual maybe you are at 7m this makes for obvious reasons difficult if not impossible to use hyperfocale. There is a method to fix this problem more tough easy,removing the rubber above the dial and unscrewing a small screw we can bring back at the end of the race the dial, but honestly I do not think that this is a real solution,because anyway from the feeling that I had the focus were not reliable for hyperfocal, and the infinity was well beyond the infinite symbol. You understand that for a totally manual lens, not having a reliable distance scale is not one of the most practical and comfortable things especially since it is a lens that requires hyperfocal, since for its opening you will still take portions of background very close to you. Reluctantly I had to return it and decided to move to a totally different perspective. For everything else for what it offers and for what are performance I do not think in the FF market there is anything better on this focal renge in relation to quality and price. The best of itself gives it on the new summer moon nights, to photograph the milky way, it is really formidable, it seems made for this very reason, manages to perfectly pull out the shades of the core,beautiful vivid and appreciable,it is very sharp, and if you are equipped with astro tracker just close to f4 and enjoy, at this opening the COMA and the astigmatism are greatly reduced and you buy a good sharpness even at the edges. I mentioned the distortion in the cons of the lens,but honestly I think that if you do not want the distortion you do not take a 14mm regardless, I personally appreciate the wide-angle distortion, and I hate to have to fix it perfectly on PS because at the end of correction goes from if that we will have a very croppathed file and if I photograph at 14mm it is precisely because the angle of the field is what I like and what I wanted, if I wanted a less pushed corner of the field I would take a 20 or a 24mm. The lampshade for obvious reasons is fixed,but honestly I do not understand why put a fixed plastic lampshade of quite dubious quality,you have to be very careful not to break it otherwise you lose the ability to plug the lens depending on how it breaks,you lose the protection it offers to the spherical lens in front and of course you take the worst side reflections. Small precisely for the sony version are the dimensions, practically we have the size of the lens canon/nikon version with the addition of an adapter embedded in the lens, which makes it several centimeters longer and even a little more weighted.
