Fairly sharp lens, but the lens circle doesn't cover the full 12mm shift and results in severe (blackout) vignetting. Lens can be shifted only about 6-7mm before vignetting is very apparent. How is this possible? Completely disappointed in this purchase.
(It looks like this lens as a "Rokinon" is the most popular purchase, so I've copied my review here. I have the Nikon mount "Bower" brand of this lens. This lens is difficult to use, but is rewarding in the right circumstances. Certainly not for "action" photography.
Didn't like the small plastic knobs, afraid they might break. Sent it back.Other than that it works great.
The first images taken seem a bit soft. I've only taken a few test shots at F7.1-F11. I will have a chance to check out more throughly this weekend. First impression is I am not completely sure I will keep it. I have had Nikon's 24mm PC and loved it.
This is a full tilt/shift lens with independent control of shift and tilt. It's possible to rotate the tilt and shift sections independently so it can work on any axis.Shift works really well for architecture to control perspective (similar to using a 14mm lens then selectively cropping but without...
This is my first Tilt/Shift lens. Lots of learning still to do. You must pay a LOT of attention to focus. E.g. when you tilt, the focus plane also moves. It is very old-fashioned manual. No auto ANYTHING, except for exposure.
The two advantages this lens has over the Nikon (I've used both) are of course the price point, and the rotating axis option. Image quality is good to great, but no where near the Nikon.
This lens does the job when you need a tilt-shift lens, but the optics aren't very sharp. I am always disappointed with the sharpness of my images when I shoot with this lens and wish I had spent the extra money and purchased the Nikon version. Next time.
I have 3 other shift lenses- all of them rotate 360 degrees allowing me to do wide angle photos by taking 12 images and stitching them together. The resulting image is the same as I used to get using a super angulon on a large format camera. Not this lens.
It doesn't feel as solid as the canon lens, but functions the same. The lens I have is dust free and the glass is excellent with a sharpness that I've felt con on is inconsistent with. Great tilt - shift for the price.
