Re: Samyang AF EF14mm f2.8

Rumour is that Canon are working on new 14mm type lenses for the "R"  format , and Sigma too have new wide prime lenses to come. Let's hope that somewhere in there is a lens that offers a fast , reasonably priced astro lens with good coma.  The Sigma 14mm f1.8 is great , but how many want to break out £1300 for a little used focal length.  There is a market, shown by the number of niche manufacturers trying to fill it , however I think it is more in the £500 to £600 range.

The manual focus SP from Samyang , even though a good lens, is a little over the £800 mark and manual focus is only starting to be usable with focus peaking on mirrorless.

How many buyers want an affordable wide that they can use for several applications beyond the one trick pony of Astro.

Gear ... what I need to get the job done , after all you don't see mechanics listing their brand of spanner as a qualification .
