Pros: Price, construction, weight, optical performance in the center

Cons: nesting at the edges when compared with pro lenses (read below), fixed focal length

Opinion: For me it is a surprising lens, particularly if you consider the price, which although not very low in absolute is the cheapest solution for a supergrandagolo FE with autofocus. I use it with an A7II for architecture and exhibition reportage, in the end I am putting it to the test in a hard way only now (I bought it just before the pandemic) and I must say that I am satisfied, once I understand the limits and peculiarities. First of all it is said that there is a lot of variability on the copies, mine seems to me however good, I do not know optical defects. Autofocus: the AF I found it accurate even in conditions of very little light, I generally prefer to set the AF on the central spot, so I do not know if with different settings there may be problems. In the manual I use it little because the ring "by wire" is a bit 'too sensitive for my taste. Distortion: there is, nothing to say but with a 14 you have to expect it, you can not shoot with a similar focal length as if it were a 24 (see below). Optical quality: The sammy 14 AF is very sharp in the center, definitely less at the edges but still acceptable as long as you close the aperture a little. In the center it is more than acceptable already at F/3.2, which seems to me to be a remarkable performance in absolute. At the edges it is never completely sharp, the best gives it to F/11, where there is also relatively little vignetting (which instead is felt at the open apertures). Even in this case, however, it is necessary to understand what you are dealing with, a 14 will still often be little usable at the edges, due to the high perspective distortion, so even the lower sharpness counts relatively. You have to learn how to make shots with such an extreme lens, once you have done a little practice the Sammy gives considerable satisfaction. The images it produces are generally well contrasted, three-dimensional and with excellent colors; the ability to get usable photos up to F/2.8 sometimes saves you a service, especially if you move freehand. Of course, having another budget (and a sturdy neck) it is better to throw yourself on the Sony 12-24 or the Sigma 14-24 that have good performance even at the edges and are zoom (which is often a holy hand). But at the price of the Samyang (which is semi-new under 400 euros), if you stumble upon a good copy it is difficult to find better.

Pros: Sharpness (especially in the center), focal, size

Cons: Inaccurate Autofocus, MF Distances, Distortion

Opinion: Great lens for the cost of sale. Excellent sharpness in the middle and good at the corners considering the extreme focus, which is definitely an added value in certain situations. Compact size and pretty good construction. The weak point is surely the autofocus, very often inaccurate, regardless of the light situation in which it works. I often found it difficult to focus even manually. In my personal opinion it is a lens to have to cover certain situations (also given the cost) but it must be combined with something more precise and less extreme to have a balanced set.

Pros: construction, price

Cons: At this price nothing

Opinion: It's a 14mm. It is a dutiful premise that must be made. You can't rate the sharpness uniformity of a 14mm as if it were a 50mm. That would be unfair. That said, the lens is egregious, especially the construction. It is solid, it really gives back a feeling of solidity, on the contrary for example the various Batis, with their lasco and pathetic lampshade, distressing for the sale price. It has no strange games, the front cap is grafted firmly, the ring is fluid, the red ring a touch of class. I start a little biased because my passion for the Samyangs is archnota, but they deserve it. Every lens they've released for Sony or the XP series is a small masterpiece. This is not, but not because the company could have done more, but because a 14mm can not be better than climbing dizzyingly with the price. On the super-grandangulars you have to settle. Here, however, the company combines the inevitable "optical mediocrity", other level features: fast and quiet AF, granite construction and inviting price. So I'm recommending it? Yes if you know what it means to shoot at 14mm, and what is a 14mm. Don't think that buying a Sony GM or a Sigma Art will get you so much better. You're not going from an 85 1.8 Canon to an 85 1.2 II. You will have less chromatic aberrations (but there will always be and you will have to correct them ), more uniformity of sharpness (but that with sensors above 36mpx still makes you see the detachment between center and edge ), less vignette (but that anyway at TA is always at least 2.5 points ), less distortion ( but always present and clear ),but ... you will not have eternal salvation in your hands. This type of lens does not compare at the level of complexity with the various medium-tele that have reached optical perfection for several years.

Pros: sharpness, weight, size

Cons: in light flare backlight situations, non-optimal edge sharpness, af problems

Opinion: Lens that I bought for budget reasons and because still not ready to buy among the top-of-the-range optics. I appreciate the yield, the sharpness (obviously not always so precise at the edges, but in the end it is), the size and lightness that allow you to have little footprint during travel. Slight distortion and vignette that can be solved during the post. Unfortunately in backlight suffers from flare, in fact in the photos I often noticed red rays, hardly usable for creative purposes in photos, sometimes going to create a slight halo that makes this area less sharp. There were also problems with the AF and difficulties in featured subjects while respecting the distance of focus. I conclude by saying that as a fixed to start, in value for money, it is a good lens. However, it should be borne in mind that (of course) it is not at the fixed/zoom sigma or GM levels of Sony.'

Pros: Also rendered in the corners, reduced distortion (compared to the old models), lightness, small size.

Cons: Problems blocking af, optics often nn recognized by machine bodies

Opinion: After a year in the company of the old model and the AF version on Canon used mainly for interior and landscape photography, I decided to move to the new sony having made the brand change. They've finally eliminated the annoying whisk distortion, now it distorts a little bit, but it's a whole other world. The af is not ring edits but is fast and precise, with the latest firmware the noise is almost impossible to hear. The af is fast and accurate even in afc. Unfortunately, however, it has several problems that I hope will be solved soon by samyang: with the first fw they blocked the machine and had to be restarted (a72, a73), with the latest version instead coming out of the standby the af often crashes and I have to unscrew and rescrew the lens. Another thing sometimes the lens inhales it nn is recognized by the machine resulting in failed exposure and F00 as a diaphragm, also here unscrew and rewind. Sammy make a move with the fw.
