Yeah its not the best copy perhaps, but not nearly as bad as the last 14mm I got from Samyang (that was apparently "within specifications"). I gave up sadly.

Good luck!

I had to adjust the infinity stop on my Rokinon, but on a good copy you get pinpoints of light when you shoot stars. Donít give up. Once you get a good copy youíll love it.

i read all the responses so far and i took a few more shots. indoor this time.

these are all center crops, 5 feet from the image sensor, i see no issues on one side or the other, its just soft everywhere when its wide open. im still a beginner so i dont know what i should expect from it.

this is f8 1/8 iso400

this is f4 1/25 iso400

this is f2.8 1/40 iso400

btw its killing me right now because i cant get a clear night sky to see how it looks there. i mean i bought the lens with the intention of shooting the stars wide open.
Is this 100% crops, or what?
