Milky way, Mars and a Perseid meteor. K-5 II, Samyang 16mm f/2 at f/2.8, stacked from 17 frames in Hugin.
Nice! You caught the colors of the streak. From green to red. I also got that and I hadn't seen this before but apparently it's normal:


Pentax K-50, Samyang 16 mm @ f/2.0, 3 shots (out of 150!) of 25 s iso 800 stacked in PSE14

Nice! Streak with green to red are meteor, plain white one are apparently satellite reflection.

Thank you! Great shot you got there. I've been shooting Perseids for several years, mostly with more success than this year, and indeed the meteors always go from green to red. And I must say the Samyang 16mm is really a great lens for things like these. I've had the opportunity to use the 20mm f/1.8 on a K-1 recently and it is fine too but not on the same level as the 16mm.

Well, now I've gone and done it! I forgot my Rokinon-labeled f2/16mm Samyang was for APS-C sensor dslrs only! I went and stuck it on my Pentax ME Super SE film body--Oh, no........................................!

But it's funny, I haven't noticed any obvious vignetting in the viewfinder. Maybe there won't be all that much. Has anybody else tried the f2/16mm on full frame by accident or just to see what happened? If so could you post some results.

I'm in the middle of a 36-exposure roll of film, at the same time I am shooting some other film and digital, so it might be a while before I have scans showing what happened in my case, but meanwhile I am curious about what sort of results others might have gotten at full frame with this lens:
--more or less vignetting than one might expect?
--not so much vignetting at certain apertures or focusing distances?
--ugly or attractive vignetting with certain subjects?
--everybody should try this or nobody should try this?

Thanks in advance for answering posts!

If you used the lens hood you will find that it cropped the extra surface of the full frame quite nicely. Without the hood, the lens works very well for 21x21mm square crops or even a bit more depending on the f-stop. The full frame is not usable in my book.

Yes, I did leave the hood on, but I could take it off for a few more shots before I switch to other lenses for the rest of the film roll. I am a bit curious about the sort of vignetting that will be produced when misusing this lens this way.

So I told them, I didn't care what they said, their scarves didn't look like polar-fleece to me.
