Pros: Full Frame Compatible, Focal Length, Brightness

Cons: Sharpness at the corners on Full Frame, fixed lampshade, not for everyone

Opinion: I'm actually using the Cine version of this optics that is in all respects equal to the photographic one with the only difference of having the toothed gapps, that of the opening "decliccated" and the greater fire race. By its nature this optics introduces the distortions that are expected but easy to correct in post-production. Better to use this optics on machines with APS-C or Super 35mm sensors because on Full Frame it shows a marked loss of sharpness and detail at the edges associated with the type of elliptical optics that makes you lose focus right in those places. The mechanics are well made and the lampshade is fixed and not removable robust but if it breaks for some reason you will be forced to change the entire body of the lens (so treat it well this lens). All the talk about the use of ND filters and so on you have to accept it and know before the purchase as well as you have to have clear ideas about its use. It is unlikely that it will not be the optics that you will use the most, indeed, but when used intelligently and sparingly it is definitely a focal and related type of constructive appropriate and targeted.

Pros: crisp, 2.8, cheap, rather well built from the point of view of solidity, fun to use, light.

Cons: the MAF's dial is slightly stared

Opinion: after the dial of the MAF a little stared (the MAF is "in advance" as a real distance compared to the one that brings the scale back to the barrel) for the rest I find only merits. If you focus calmly with the magnification in live view, there is no way to go wrong and the sharpness is enough even to f2.8 (it is clear that it can not be on all the diaphragm, who expected this result at TA made the wrong purchase). A f4 is already globally great, from f5.6 to f11 is outstanding (on 26Mpx at least). Besides, there is a bit of physiological diffraction, but it is still optically excellent. I find it well built despite considering the price, the lampshade is plastic but it is embedded and in my opinion adequately protects the flashy, protruding and otherwise very exposed outer glass, which makes so much figure with its accentuated sphthicivity but must be Protected. The cap is also plastic but fits well and does not detach. The lens contains a good amount of glass, you feel, and the metal parts increase a feeling of solidity that I found in lenses even of higher price, build quality that you would not expect in a cheap lens - and this, from the mere point of view price, it is. The whisp distortion is not even imention, too easy to correct with even cheap programs (PTLens) or even free (GimpLensFun plugin on Gimp 32-bit). In fact, in all honesty, I also happened to take more excited "familiar" shots with the children running, sealing in LV freehand, and I still found myself quite at ease pulling out some great shots: in fact with the diaphragm closed if you turn the dial in a reasonable circle of the distance to which the subjects are located you are sure that they will be in focus in a way that goes from perfect to acceptable, thanks to the high pdc given by the large framed area. Final grade: 9 (only for the starry dial)

Pros: Price

Cons: Little sharpness

Opinion: I bought it because of the price last year, because I wasn't a photography expert yet. Using it I found little sharpness in night photography (Milky Way, Aurora Borealis, etc). Perhaps better the next version (Samyang XP 14mm f/2.4). Satisfied with the price and slightly satisfied with the product.

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.
