Samyang 24mm f/1.4 Sample Shots

Sample pictures

Looks pretty damn good to me. Sharp across the frame, nice bokeh for a wide angle.

Note: These test shots were taken on a Nikon D3 and Canon 5DII.

Hah, woops, sorry. Didn't see your thread.

These are the full-res photos, though!

They seem to have been using a graduated filter in some of the shots, although there also seems, at first glance, to be some general vignetting, which I guess is almost inevitable with a lens this wide and fast, especially shot on a 35mm sensor. Even though PP will generally eliminate that, I guess it bodes well for us APS-C shooters, though.

Interesting. No CA is evident in these samples. Border resolution seem to be weak in some of these shots - particularly on the left side. Not as sharp as I thought it would be at f/8 - maybe it peaks earlier or maybe the filter is the issue. Doesn't appear to have much distortion. The f/1.4 shot looks good.
