Latest Review Posted Samyang 14mm F2.8 ED AS IF UMC
I have the Bower Branded one. Everyone has heard of all the QC issues over the OO Calibration being way off...Mine was no different at all. Remember this is a ultra wide angle lens so its not east to view adjustments easily as other lenses when calibrating. More than once I thought it was soft and almost returned it for a replacement. I found the key to making it easier is to use f5.6 during calibration and not the f2.8 It was a pain getting the infinity hard stop dialed in correctly and took me about 100 images to get it spot on. However once done the calibration scale on the barrel was spot on. Build is impeccable for a modern lens as is the "A" contacts on this lens. It has a huge focus throw and is nicely dampened. The lens has no threads and has a permanent built in hood which makes it hard to use ND filters. There are aftermarket products to overcome this but they are almost the price of the lens.....take this into consideration. This lens is a bit prone to ghosting and CA at wide open apertures against reflective or highly lit subjects , but it stops entirely at f4.0. Its not bad at all , but is noticeable if your not familiar with it. This is the first lens I had to really work with as far as test shots and depth of field scale. Once dialed in it becomes a $$$$ making machine... Dragon Slayer....a Giant Killer......It performs ! This lens is so easy to use for street photography , close landscapes , and just about anything you can think of using a UWA lens ...
