That thing is a monster in size.
yes, it's huge. I wish it was smaller, just wondering how shallower will the DOF compared to f2. Any comparison picture at FA35@f2 and SY35@1.4

how about the post box and statue? I don't think those would change due to the season.
Lighting? Settings? WB? And on and on. They just are not comparable IMHO in any meaningful way.

It has to be a different time of the year it looks like the secound was painted a different color because it does not have the white on the side like the first one

I have to say, this lens does appeal to me due to it's speed & high IQ, even though I already have the DA ltd. The price is ok and may come down in a few months. It's the size that puts me off more than the lack of AF. The size and the fact that the DA is superb (even if 2 stops slower) would mean the Samyang would never go anywhere.
