Hello Samyang/Rokinon users!

I'm currently working on a comparative review of various 50mm lenses for pentaxforums, and as such I want to build a samples gallery for each tested lens. One of those is the Samyang / Rokinon 50 mm f/1.4 AS UMC. I've browsed your lens club and haven'T found a single shot taken with that lens, which I find hard to believe. I must have looked wrongly.

Long story short, if anyone has pictures taken with that lens that they're happy with, feel free to drop me a note if you're interested in having those images shown in the review! I see plenty of wonderful pictures in this club, don't be shy about sharing!

Thanks.

As those flowers have four petals, and all of the phloxes have five petals, I am pretty sure that you are looking at a massive patch of Dame's Rocket, a non-native-to-America member of the mustard family. They can range in color from white to pale blue, very much like the wild phlox known as Sweet William, to lilac to pink, to deeper blues to violet, sometimes all in the same patch of them.

The bad news is that they are often considered invasive competitors to whatever native flora that should be growing there. The good news is that means you can pick as many of them as you want -- if you have permission from the landowner -- since picking them while they are in flower prevents them from going to seed and dropping thousands of seeds per plant! They are known for their fragrance, too, which probably explains why pioneers brought the seeds from the Old Country.

Rokinon/Samyang f/2 16mm, at f/4
with Tiffin Warm Low-Light Polarizing Filter *
plus Pentax K110D

[ * I got this filter to try on my f/8 500 mirror lens, but I was curious whether it's reduced polarizing effect would give a more even sky deepening effect than the standard polarizer I tried on it one time that gave me a much darker sky on one side of this lens's wide view than it did on the other. At least, for the lighting in this shot, I didn't get that sort of drastic disparity. On the other hand, this polarizer seems to affect both focus and metering. I have to focus by eye and ignore the camera's focus confirm light. To shoot aperture priority, I have to use the camera's manual mode and the ae-l button. ]

They are certainly a phloxie color! And a lot of the other wild mustards have yellow flowers. So phlox isn't an illogical guess by any means.
