papparazzi: Samyang 14mm 2.8 anyone?
I just received my Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and it is very sharp and coma free. Almost every review says it is as good or maybe a little better than Nikon legendary 14-24 f/2.8 because it is less sensible to flare. Besides high distortion, which I don't care for landscape, it is difficult to see why one would pay 7X the price for Zeiss except for architecture (the Nikon is also almost free of distortion). Any idea or justification besides architecture or Zeiss Acquisition Syndrome ?
