Pros: Very bright, sharpness in the center always good (from f/5.6 even at the edges), affordable price, smooth and precise focus dial

Cons: At full opening the edges are not the maximum, obvious distortion and not always correctable with ease, bulky lampshade, voluminous cap

Opinion: I took it essentially to photograph the sky (milky way) and the stars, but it also behaves well in other situations. The maximum opening f/2.8 makes it possible to shoot even with little light without having to raise the ISOs too much, while if the light is good just set a diaphragm f/8, put in hyperfocal and you can forget the focus ring. It is fluid and well-fried, and with the distance scale much more precise than other objectives of the same brand that I own. Using it practically only on full-frame (Pentax), I can count on a huge field angle but that requires attention, because including unwanted details is a moment, so watch out for the edges when you shoot. Even the bubble put is important, penalty very flashy drooping lines. The sharpness in the center is always good while the entire opening the edges are not at the top, they improve a lot of diaphragm and already at f/5.6 you can count on a very good sharpness on the whole frame, and excellent in the center. On the other side the distortion is quite noticeable, and rather difficult to correct completely, so I do not recommend this lens for architectural photos or where it is essential to have perfectly straight lines. One last note is about the dimensions, which are quite important, that combined with the fixed lampshade and the voluminous cap (and poor quality) mean that to store the camera with the grafted lens it takes a lot of space. However, considering the features the price is affordable and if you need a wide angle pushed it is worth having it in the kit, also because the alternatives for Pentax are very limited and cost double or triple, if not more. Vote 8

Pros: Good sharpness already in T.A; from f. 4 onwards a blade! Compact and solid. Cost.

Cons: Plastic cap and lampshade;

Opinion: As far as I'm concerned it's a very good goal. Fantastic sharpness; holds the backlight well (very little flar) when used at f. 8 practically no matter focus. I read reviews opposed to mine and, while not questioning them at all, they do not agree with what I felt on the field. The only sensible answer I can give is that Samyang, as far as this lens is concerned, does not have a uniform production. mine, used on F.F and APSH gives the same results with regard to sharpness both at the edges and in the center. The focus dial is perfect; too fluid or too little; it's a good feeling in use. I posted in my gallery "Padule" a shot made with EOS 1D Mark IV and I can say that not even the 16/35 f. 2.8 Canon series I has ever given me similar results. Let's be clear that I don't think it's the best wide angle out there, but at the 180.00 euros I've won, I don't think it's a problem if someone tells me that the Zeiss equal focal has a few more lines of resolution! if I have to make a lapidary judgment: EXCELLENT!

Pros: Weight, price, 14mm, sharpness, break difficulty, f/2.8 opening

Cons: manual focus, faulty models

Opinion: Let's assume that at this price it is impossible to find better, we talk about 200 euros on the used and little more on the new (on Amazon it came to 280 euros). Paired with the D750, it seems to have a mirrorless in hand due to weight and compactness. It has virtually no internal mechanics, so it hardly will leave you on foot, you talk about manual focus, but just put it to infinity and that's it. Some models unfortunately do not have the precise reference scale and therefore need to calibrate it (see on Youtube). In my opinion it is very sharp if it closes at f/8 of course, I am particularly pleased with this goal. Now I also have the Z6 and I would have liked to try its namesake in Z version, but they speak bad about it. Honestly, anyone who talks about bottle bottoms is better off changing hobbies.

Pros: Field corner

Cons: Sharpness, construction, painful corners always

Opinion: I did not claim to have a Zeiss lens in my hand, but not even a bottle bottom which proved to be an examination. Maybe after thirty years of photography I found the crartiest optics I could ever buy and I didn't always have optics from the big blazon. I cannot understand certain reviews that exalt the sharpness that I have not found in my specimen, perhaps suffering from serious centering problems, since the bottom corners could never be of a decent quality, the plastic of the lampshade, as that of the cap is of poor quality and be careful not to solicit them because they break easily. The focus ring, in my specimen, in addition to presenting the classic staring complained by the most, had a game that if you changed the direction of focus to or to infinity had a void of movement. However painful experience that I thought could not happen since with the 8mm of the same manufacturer at the time of the aps-c had greatly amused me, despite its limitations. I don't give any votes because I'd need the negative numbers. Returned as the plague.

Pros: Detail, robustness, construction, versatility, quality of materials, for the micro four-thirds is perfect (in other formats does not give these results) 14mm (28mm per MFT)

Cons: filter adapters sold separately

Opinion: Great lens bought at a real bargain price new, less than 200 euros. Great for landscape photography and not but I think the most makes it in the videos. The focus dial is fabulous when shooting videos, in fact for a videomaker this is essential to give an artistic touch to the shoot. What to say..., it's not a leic but it's not even a Chinese... He does his job very well if not perfectly, and I think it's the right compromise for a pro photographer and not that he doesn't want to faint but bring home an optimal result. my judgment is 8.8 out of 10. I have other lenses like the 12-60 leica or the 14-45 lumix or the 25mm f1.7 but believe me that this optics in the videos find its right place. Amazing, at f2.8 infinite fire is almost all in focus... really useful for shooting with steadycam or gimbal.
