Most photographers would not put full frame 14mm at the top of their most-used focal length list, but most photographers can benefit by having this focal length in their kits. Images captured at 14mm can be very captivating and a welcome addition to one's photo portfolio.

Handling and features This lens is available to fit many different types of cameras, including Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony and Four Thirds SLRs as well as Samsung NX mirrorless cameras and costs around £260.

If you can live with the inherent distortion and the lack of autofocusing, the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 lens provides by far the cheapest way to get a really wide-angle lens that can produce sharp images.

Although this basic lens may not be for everyone, those looking for an ultra-wide lens, which is capable of delivering excellent quality when used within its limitations can't go far wrong with this 14mm from Samyang.

    Extremely inexpensive, Excellent sharpness in the centre at f/2.8 and across the frame when stopped down to f/5.6 or beyond, Good build, Relatively lightweight, Extremely low CA levels

No promises, but I would like to write a full Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens review in the future. In the meantime, I think that you will find the standardized Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens results currently available to be helpful.

Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED Aspherical UMC may be the surprise product of the season. It's very affordable yet performing up there with the very best big boys. However, it's not a flawless lens, of course.

What could be written here? To tell you the truth I would recommend even the previous version of the Samyang 2.8/14 without scruple. The improved model, although a bit more expensive, has really much more to offer.

    decent build quality,, sensational image quality in the frame centre,, very good image quality at the edge of an APS-C/DX sensor,, fully acceptable image resolution at the edge of full frame,, chromatic aberration medium at most,, well-corrected coma,, properly corrected vignetting on a small...

    high and complicated distortion,, significant vignetting on full frame,, you can’t use any filters.

Before providing my opinion on this Samyang Lens, I would like to describe myself as a middle aged advanced amateur photographer. I am not a pro but photography has been a hobby of mine for 20 years and in the last 10 years, I have been lucky to be able to purchase some professional L lenses and...

One of the greatest, cheapest and best lens for photographing the Northern Lights. It work great for landscape, but you need to know DOF when focusing, but it's quite easy.

  • +

    Sharp, even wide open (sharper than Nikon 14-24 at f/2.8) Cheap Smooth focus ring Easy to find infinity focus for stars Electric circuit - control aperture/shutter in camera FX lens

  • -

    Heavily barrel distortion (use lens correction in Lightroom to fix that) Different focus on many copies Soft in corners at f/11 also

very good Ultra Wide; and FF

    very sharp and good contrast nice format

    like every SY distance scale needs to be calibrated with Live View/ Contrast detect; but after that has been done...perfect can have issues with flair

I bought It to try as a night sky lens, and I've used it for some pleasing aurora / stars / moonlit landscape photos on my first trip with it. The hype about lack of coma for this purpose seems to be justified.

It seemed sharp, and I found the manually adjustable aperture very good for walkabout video, where you could adjust as you went in and out of shade, buildings, etc. It wasn't smooth though as it click-adjusted in half-stops - not for professional use, that feature.

stick a focus chip on it and you have a different lens only takes superglue and half a brain and use dxo for corrections automarically

Great lens. Very good price, and nice build quality. The lens is quite sharp with good colour reproduction. The only fault is a large amount of barrel distortion, but it's something to live with as it's somewhat correctable.
