Pros: Quality, weight and size.

Cons: lens hood

Opinion: I convinced myself to buy this lens because it is very light and very small, as well as exasperated by the focus of my Samyang 14mm. After the lost 4mm, there is no comparison: it is sharper (especially at the edges), more compact, MAF much better. The price is ridiculous for the overall quality it offers and for the utility, especially for travel photographers. Of course the lampshed is a toy and some more premium lens details are missing; however, in my opinion, it remains the wide angle to take for those who travel and do not just take landscape photography.

Pros: Footprint, optical quality and cost

Cons: Problems in the backlights with sun on the pitch

Opinion: I was oriented to Loxia21 or Sony20/1.8, but since my accquisti are not compulsive when I was presented with the opportunity to use this lens having the opportunity to test it before the purchase I decided to try it. I already own the 16/35 is Canon and I already had the opportunity to use 20mm when I had analog Nikon and the 14/2.8 Fuji,I was not very inclined to go down to lower focal points as a field angle, also because I had the 14 Sammy for my tastes and attitudes I used too little, of the series taken-used-resold after a few months at the same price. Going back to the 18th that I use on Sony 7rII I immediately found myself well resolution, vignetting and above all surprisingly good distortion for the focal even considering the cost even from new. As already written in the premise you have to be careful when the sun enters the field in the strong backlights that can bring flares and phantom images, but knowing it can be overcome and in any case in my opinion it always remains a must in the value for money. All this must then be verified individually, given the fact that according to many the variability due to quality control must be verified between the subject and the subject.

Pros: Framing, af, lightness, sharpness

Cons: nobody

Opinion: Wonderful lens, if you take it on Amazon it is better not to risk taking a failed copy , I am enthusiastic about this lens when compared to the Batis I just come to thank Samyang for giving vent to the creativity of photographers with such a derisory budget and with respectable performance and worthy of some publications or prints that you want , in every mode of use I find it excellent. Thank you Samyang. This ultra-grandangular focal and my 105 art 1.4 are perfect on my Sony A7iii for the way I interpret artistic photography. Not being a matrimonialist I don't care about coverage from 24-70 or 70-200, I just want quality and versatility being true to my favorite PDRs. So I found peace with the Sony system. In 1 week of use I will redo another more in-depth review

Pros: Crisp, light, compact and inexpensive

Cons: Variability between copies

Opinion: I chose the Samyang 18mm f/2.8 as a wide angle to combine with the A7C to have an optics that could also be used at night, but that at the same time was extremely compact and light: with its 145 grams of weight, this lens is really unbeatable. The sharpness is amazing, great at all diaphragms, already at f/2.8 it is very good. The price around 350 euros makes it very competitive; in this price range it is difficult to find such good optics. The only downside is the variability between the various specimens: I have seen various evidence of copies that have much worse clarity than mine; I therefore advise you to buy it from a retailer that gives you the opportunity to change it in case you find any defects.

Pros: Global yield, weight (who knows if it's good)

Cons: Construction(?), lampshed,flare

Opinion: The first impression in hand was a can cut with a glass like a lampshed... all very very light!!! If it's a good thing you'll see over time... moving instead to the yield at 2.8 has slightly soft corners and you notice vignetting, from f4 no longer vignette and the edges are good, from 5.6-f11 good from the center to the corners in the same way ... in short, it does exactly what I was hoping for, not like the samyang 10mm I had, but much better than the samyang 14 that had disappointed me a lot, even the distortion seems quite contained, in short for now it promises well; good colors, contrast and micro contrast right, if we really want to suffer a little flare in the backlight with front and also lateral light.
