Has anyone bought the Samyang or has other expierience with that lens?

I liked what I saw at the Photokina and I would like to use it for landscape photography.


I have had a Samyang 14mm f/2.8 for a couple of years and like it, especially for the price. The lens is light weight and inexpensive, but people who use it a lot tend to consider it disposable and prone to off-centering under heavy use.

I ran across this review recently and although the subject is astrophotography, the reviewer had lots of interesting points about sharpness, durability, weight, and price for three lenses including the Samyang 14mm f/2.8.
