Thread: Samyang 14mm f/2.8 Field Test - Amazing Sharpness and IQ !

    Can anybody post a f2.8 shot? Bright daylight also ok, no need to be low-light. No need to be 100%, but say 2000x1200 thereabouts would be nice. Thanks.

In HK, as long u buy one with I.Warranty, u r safe, but Samyang is different.

    580 is quite a reasonable price.

    sure, but I am shocked that this lens is going at a super low price ! I got mine at SGD 699 previously.

    yes, they are having a sale on. but i am not 100% sure as I am not affiliated to them. I am just a regular customer who visit that shop for poison and lighting equipments.

    Ditto. especially for existing users. anyone ?

    The brick wall test shot online looked obvious, of course the solution is not to be a brick wall shooter, but i'd imagine some buildings with much lines running at the edges might appear wavy .. slightly ..

    Is this lens suitable for talking photo without tripod? A bit concern if still able to use relative fast shuttle speed if set to f8

    That you gotta depends on the lighting conditions of the situation. If you taking with flash and for group photo, i don't think so it should be a problem.

    Been using this lense for a week on my d700 n the manual focus brings a whole new perspective to practising photography.

    *note, posted this in wrong thread on fisheye yesterday...iphone4 screen too small*

    Overall a very good product for the price and width it gives me
