Coastal tranquility
Lens: Samyang 20mm Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Waddensea, the Netherlands ISO: 100 Aperture: F9 
Posted By: Fries, 07-15-2020, 02:14 PM

Didn't have a lot of time to go out shooting but lately my fortunes turned and I was able to shoot with my newest lens; the Samyang 20mm F1.8. They didn't have it in stock and with Covid complicating the supply of stuff from the far east it did take a bit more then 3 months. All the photo's are from two shoots at two different locations in and on the Waddensea.

Cheers,

Remco

Cool location and images. How do you like the rokinon? I was tempted to get one for astrophotography.

Thanks! This are only first my first impressions but I am really satisfied with this lens. I've bought it for landscapes and some astrophotography after a learned a Dutch Pentax ambassador acquired one. And what is nice is the filter diameter of 77mm. That's the same as the Samyang 24mm that I use a lot and the DA*16-50 that I used a lot on APC. So al my filters are still usable! Manual focussing is no trouble at all. But I mainly shoot from a tripod and with live view. Infinity is there where you would expect it to be on the focussing ring. When I want autofocus for my journalistic endeavors I use my FA limiteds. If this lens is like the Samyang 24mm F1.4 it should be good for astrophotography. Look over here to see one example of that: Some soothing seascapes during troubled times - PentaxForums.com. This is a time lapse from the same scene:

Thanks! I hope to do the same in the Nordic countries this year. But that is still highly uncertain due to the Covid situation.

Thank you! Glad to be of some help. I wish you and your countrymen all the best in confronting and solving this crisis although hope seems in short supply looking at the gap between wat is needed and what is being done in parts of the US.

Beautiful images. That is the perfect focal length for capturing the expansiveness of the shore.

Thanks Todd! You might be right; this lens does fit my photography and my favorite landscape. A good thing it does; my DFA150-450 got destroyed more or less at one of these locations this ;...
