Re: Kamlan 21mm f1.8 - samples

Great pictures, gives a great impression of the lens.

For those that are curious abut the weight differences between some of the options discussed in this thread:

Kamlan 21mm: 264 grams

Samyang 21mm: 290 grams ** Assume the Rokinon version is the same. I see it available in silver for Rokinon

Fujinon 23mm 1.4: 300 grams

Viltrox 23mm 1.4: 260 grams

Pergear 25mm 1.8: 195 grams

Also of note, the Kamlan 21mm lists the closest minimum focus distance of 4.782", and 1:3.4 magnification. Thats much closer than any of those other options. So if getting up close and personal is your thing, this is a good option.

The Pergear is the lightest of this bunch. I have had it a week, and will write a review soon. I got it purely to try that focal length, and now i'm curious to see something a bit wider. This Kamlan is leading my list of contenders as well. For $140 on ebay, or $180 Adorama (why does BH not sell this?) its a easy decision.
