Question : Samyang 14mm + focus confirm
Nov 1, 2011

The Samyang 14mm seems a great lens.
I intent to buy it for a Canon 5D mk2.

Question 1:

Since it is a manual focus lens, I wonder if taking it in Nikon mount + an adapter Nikon to Canon, with "focus confirm", would do the trick ?

Example of such adapter on ebay:

I use such adapter for a old Nikkor 55mm f1.2 on my 40D and it works ok.

Question 2:

Is there already some setting file for this lens on Photoshop CS5 to correct its distortion whenever needed ?

Question 3:

I also considered the Sigma 12-24mm II, but saw that its image quality is not on par with the Samyang. Is this really visible or just if you crop a lot ?

Thanks for advise.
