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.

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.
