Straying from a decade of only using Sony G & Zeiss glass with the 14mm Rokinon
8 months ago

I took a gamble after reading a number of positive reviews and purchased the Rokinon 14mm ultra-wide angle lens with eyes open about the fully manual operation, aided by focus peaking, on my A99.

I imported lens correction profiles on Lightroom 5 that were designed for the Canon and Nikon mounts of this same lens to help correct the well-publicized mustache distortion of the Samyang lens equivalent.

It was big fun going wider than the abilities of the SAL-2470Z.  Here are two examples:  The finish line of the annual spring festival buggy race at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and the interior of the magnificent new business building (yet unnamed) at Penn State University at University Park, PA.
