FuhTeng: E-mount ain't got no lenses! I need me a wide angle prime to shoot my cats from 6 inches, this just won't do for my needs! And who thinks f/2.8 is acceptable for wideangle! I demand a 16 mm, 4 inch minimum focal length f/1.4 lens!

what a beautiful design - gorgeous but a bit pricey for moi sadly

On article Samyang announces five full frame E-mount lenses (20 comments in total)

When I used this lens on Sony A6000, when I look at the camera histogram its hard or impossible to get a profile that extends fully from the left to the right on the screen and the curve is always quite shallow (different to when I use other lens). In manual mode does it matter what metering the camera is set, spot, wide or whatever (I mean do the metering modes work with a manual lens). Overall what are the best settings on the camera to use with a manual lens. I use auto ISO 100-800 (or 1600 if i must), then the top wheel to play on shutter speed to get a screen that looks ok for exposure, and the DISP button so I see histogram on the screen. I rarely get a histogram that covers the full range. But I love the lens, the feel of it and focus peaking is very nice.

Very much enjoyed the look through, only steampunk I don't like at all. The rest, very nice. Of course the ultra beautiful ladies help a tad.

Paul_B Midlands UK: Was interesting to see, especially the benefits of getting f2.8 or wider, last weekend I hit some limitations with my Sony supawide zoom f4 (ouch) with a6000 and slow to focus is poor light rx10. Note no flash allowed .. Nice too see what the better gear or lens at least can do. Here bad light gig shots and BMXing! https://www.flickr.com/photos/127926668@N02/sets/72157656523732600
I have no faith to use iso more than 1250 images seem to degrade too much or maybe that's Sony's rather less impressive jpg engine. Its a reason is like to sell up and move in to maybe high qual m4/3.

yes your probably right. I saw a guy there with a Samyang 85mm F2.8 or 1.8 I forget, he was loving it.

hypo: It's reassuring to see that even talented professionals make simple mistakes occasionally - like getting your own shadow in the picture (no.19):-)

Lol, that's a good one

Pandimonium: Is this supposed to make me want to get married in a hurry?

Seems not, but what's the harm for those in NY whose timing works, it's fun and puts Nikon in the frame. Good on the marketeers.

Esign: Corner sharpness: all wide-angle lenses suffer from field curvature aberration. Refocus and/or stop down if you need sharp corners.
Party and wide-angle: you MUST shoot at waist level to keep the head-foot ratio reasonable. And no humans at far edges.

I like that tip cheers. was aware about edges never thought about the waist level shooting. Ta.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Hmmm... The Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S sells for $1800. That's $1600 less than the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM.

What should I do?

Pins and needles, needles and pins.

mjordan1: Please, please! No more reference to "fluorine" coatings. Fluorine is a gas at room temperature and very reactive. The coatings used are " fluoride" coatings e.g. calcium/magnesium fluoride, both of which are ionic compounds and not elements like fluorine.
