Quick Comparison: Panny 7-14 vs. Samyang 8mm Fisheye
Apr 1, 2010

My 7-14 arrived today and I did a quick comparison to my Rokinon/Samyang with a Canon EF adapter on my GH1. Here are the results.

7-14 UWA at 7mm:

8 mm Rokinon Fisheye:

8 mm Rokinon Fisheye, de-fished with PTLens:

The 7-14 impresses. The fisheye plus adapter is twice the weight of the 7-14, needs processing, is not as fast (f/3.5 vs. f/2.8).

Conclusion is that I will not use the Rokinon with my GH1.
