I am sorry I have posted this on both this and the Sony Mirrorless Lens Talk forums in case some people with the right answers don't frequent both forums. I have a Sony A7R3 for which I have just bought a Samyang 35mm f2.8 lens and a Samyang Lens Station and upgraded the lens Firmware from version 04 to 05. I would like advice on the following: 1. Out of the box the AF Adjustment (AF Pint, though I think they mean Point) setting was set to "-4" though if you choose the default setting in Lens...

I have a Sony A7R3 for which I have just bought a Samyang 35mm f2.8 lens and a Samyang Lens Station and upgraded the lens Firmware from version 04 to 05. I would like advice on the following: 1. Out of the box the AF Adjustment (AF Pint, though I think they mean Point) setting was set to "-4" though if you choose the default setting in Lens Manager it sets it to "0". In practice the focusing seems fine. Questions: a. How critical is this setting? b. How can I test which is the best setting...

Hi, I got Sanyang 35 mm 2.8 FE lens and I don't like their lens cap (I'm sure I'm not the only one) - any ideas from those who have it with direct links of a batter lens cap or something? --Jeff D.

Hi, I would have a question for you if you have the time to answer, it would be awesome!I'm not in the best situation when it comes to budget, but I thought a way of getting the best I can for my money. So here's my plan for getting into the full-frame world: Getting a Sony a7 Mk 1 used around 400 dollars. Getting a 16-35mm f4 for landscape and street and general travel photography. Getting the 50mm f1.8 (the nifty fifty). This is all for starting. And then later down the road (in about 1-1.5...

Hi all, Samyang (Rokinon) AF 35mm f/2.8 FE and Samyang AF 24mm f/2.8 FE - if anyone who could share their experience on which is the sharpest (or in your experience just better) of these lenses on a full frame body? Which one of these would you buy and why? Thank you! --Jeff D.

I am using a Sony A6300. When I shoot images with a Samyang 35mm f2.8 lens, power off, remove the lens, attach a manual non-electronic lens, power on, and shoot, the metadata will have incorrectly written in the lens model Samyang 35mm. It does not have the same problem if I previously power on with a Sony or Sigma electronic lens, then switch to the same manual non-electronic lens, the metadata will correctly have the lens model blank. This problem also doesn't show up on a NEX-6 body. It's...

I recently bought a 24mm 2.8 FE to go with the 35mm I had already. Going to use the 35mm after adjusting some settings on the Lens Station the lens did not register on my camera (Sony A7Rii). The 24mm still worked fine. Putting the 35mm on the Lens Dock again and it thought it was the 24mm. I reset the computer and it still thinks it's a 24mm. The 35mm is currently unusable. Is there any way of resetting the lens?

Hey there - Visiting Japan starting next week (!!!), will be staying in Tokyo, Kyoto, Nikko, Takayama, Miyajima, and Hiroshima. Where do you think I should cap the auto iso for street photography at night? There will be plenty of lit signs and streetlamps etc, but I'm not sure exactly how the camera is going to react under those conditions. Shooting so far, it seems 25,600 or even 51,000 is quite workable, but maybe I'll regret one of those choices later. What do you think? My general go-to...
