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.

Pros: Very bright, sharpness in the center always good (from f/5.6 even at the edges), affordable price, smooth and precise focus dial

Cons: At full opening the edges are not the maximum, obvious distortion and not always correctable with ease, bulky lampshade, voluminous cap

Opinion: I took it essentially to photograph the sky (milky way) and the stars, but it also behaves well in other situations. The maximum opening f/2.8 makes it possible to shoot even with little light without having to raise the ISOs too much, while if the light is good just set a diaphragm f/8, put in hyperfocal and you can forget the focus ring. It is fluid and well-fried, and with the distance scale much more precise than other objectives of the same brand that I own. Using it practically only on full-frame (Pentax), I can count on a huge field angle but that requires attention, because including unwanted details is a moment, so watch out for the edges when you shoot. Even the bubble put is important, penalty very flashy drooping lines. The sharpness in the center is always good while the entire opening the edges are not at the top, they improve a lot of diaphragm and already at f/5.6 you can count on a very good sharpness on the whole frame, and excellent in the center. On the other side the distortion is quite noticeable, and rather difficult to correct completely, so I do not recommend this lens for architectural photos or where it is essential to have perfectly straight lines. One last note is about the dimensions, which are quite important, that combined with the fixed lampshade and the voluminous cap (and poor quality) mean that to store the camera with the grafted lens it takes a lot of space. However, considering the features the price is affordable and if you need a wide angle pushed it is worth having it in the kit, also because the alternatives for Pentax are very limited and cost double or triple, if not more. Vote 8

Pros: Good sharpness already in T.A; from f. 4 onwards a blade! Compact and solid. Cost.

Cons: Plastic cap and lampshade;

Opinion: As far as I'm concerned it's a very good goal. Fantastic sharpness; holds the backlight well (very little flar) when used at f. 8 practically no matter focus. I read reviews opposed to mine and, while not questioning them at all, they do not agree with what I felt on the field. The only sensible answer I can give is that Samyang, as far as this lens is concerned, does not have a uniform production. mine, used on F.F and APSH gives the same results with regard to sharpness both at the edges and in the center. The focus dial is perfect; too fluid or too little; it's a good feeling in use. I posted in my gallery "Padule" a shot made with EOS 1D Mark IV and I can say that not even the 16/35 f. 2.8 Canon series I has ever given me similar results. Let's be clear that I don't think it's the best wide angle out there, but at the 180.00 euros I've won, I don't think it's a problem if someone tells me that the Zeiss equal focal has a few more lines of resolution! if I have to make a lapidary judgment: EXCELLENT!

Pros: Weight, price, 14mm, sharpness, break difficulty, f/2.8 opening

Cons: manual focus, faulty models

Opinion: Let's assume that at this price it is impossible to find better, we talk about 200 euros on the used and little more on the new (on Amazon it came to 280 euros). Paired with the D750, it seems to have a mirrorless in hand due to weight and compactness. It has virtually no internal mechanics, so it hardly will leave you on foot, you talk about manual focus, but just put it to infinity and that's it. Some models unfortunately do not have the precise reference scale and therefore need to calibrate it (see on Youtube). In my opinion it is very sharp if it closes at f/8 of course, I am particularly pleased with this goal. Now I also have the Z6 and I would have liked to try its namesake in Z version, but they speak bad about it. Honestly, anyone who talks about bottle bottoms is better off changing hobbies.
