Re: Rokinon/Samyang 14mm F/2.4 SP/XP Lens Quality

Thank you all for the detailed responses! I am very interested in the comparison of the Sigma 14mm 1.8 to the Samyang XP 2.4.

I do plan on using the lens solely for night photography - and I would certainly prefer to only pay the price of the Samyang! However, I don't want to feel that I have settled and need to upgrade in the future.

My night photography requires a 14mm or comparable unfortunately, so I can't really go to a 20mm focal length.

In your opinion, how significant is the sharpness difference between the Sigma and the Samyang XP? I've seen various reviews and haven't found a concise answer. Does the lack of coma make up for the less sharp Samyang?

Thank you!
