Re: Full frame - Samyang 14mm 2.8 is sharp!

The upper two corners look pretty good. Can you post a landscape with detail in all 4 corners please. Also al little more info. Does it have AF, AF confirmation only or is it MF only. Thanks in advance.

Ill try. The lower right corner footpath at the edge shows how sharp it is in the lower corner. It's sharp in all 4. Manual focus lens with manual stops. Makes you slow down to use it but a lot of fun.

Thanks. I have seen threads on it and it has sparked a little interest for me. If they can do this with a 14mm imagine what they can do with a 21 or 24mm.

I am so far enjoying it on my crop camera, can't wait for FF someday. Where was that picture taken? Looks like a cool place!

Looks good, could be contrastier but a bit of curves will take care of that.

It´s a really impressive lens! And the price is less than 300€.

Buy the way I bought a Canon mount version, not Nikon+adapter, for Canon bodies, but I glued a programable af-emf chip from older leica R af-adapter, and now also the af-confirmation works well and helps focusing in close up situation. You get the same by Nikon+af adapter combination.

How so? I mean the DoA, the bummer part is obvious. I'm also considering this lens.

The aperture blades went bust.

I just posted my experience here:

Needless to say, my saturday is bust as well... I so wanted to love this lens.

Crystal caves, Bermuda. I was glad they let me bring in my tripod.

What could have been dead about it - it has no electronics. Unless you just mean broken.

EDIT - Oh, I see.
