Bower 14mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens for Pentax/Samsung DSLRs

You Pay: $329.00
Product Highlights
  • For Pentax/Samsung DSLRs
  • 14 Elements/12 Groups Construction
  • Two Aspherical & Two ED Lens Elements
  • 92.5° AOV (APS-C)/21mm Equivalent
  • Close Focusing Down to 11" (0.28 m)
  • Manual Focus Lens

The Bower 14mm f/2.8 Wide Angle Lens features two high-precision aspherical elements and two ED-glass elements. This results in better contrast and sharpness at the outer edges, and a reduction in chromatic aberrations that can sometimes be seen with high-resolution digital SLRs.

This bright, manual focus lens provides an ultra wide 92.5° (21mm equivalent) angle view in digital SLR cameras with APS-C size sensors so you can capture sweeping vistas, dramatic architectural compositions and panoramas. Additionally, its minimum focusing distance of only 11" (0.28 m) will allow you to move in close on your subjects to achieve amazing perspectives. With a fast f/2.8 aperture photographers can create dynamic photographs that take full advantage of the characteristics of the lens.

    Comments about Bower 14mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens for Pentax/Samsung DSLRs:

    Clean image corner to corner, very usable wide open. At its best already by f/4-5.6 (amazing in an ultra-wide at any price).

    Unlike the 8mm lens, little to no aperture focus shift. However, the lens focuses well past infinity at all apertures (easily compensated by locating sharp focus at infinity).

    Comments about Bower 14mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens for Pentax/Samsung DSLRs:

    I purchased this lens from B&H for use with my Pentax k-5.

    I have been wanting to explore shooting in the manual mode with a variety of different lenses. The Bower 14mm has not disappointed me yet.

    It is a fun learning experience to shoot in manual with this lens. The images that I have captured so far have been so colorful and tight...beach...our dogs...flowers...I am quite satisfied with the results from the Bower 14mm 2.8 Wide Angle.

    With a bagful of moderate priced lenses (all from B&H) that I shoot in the manual mode with...the affordability of lenses such as this Bower and others that B&H offers allows for creativity and expression that I haven't experienced in photography before.

    I rated it four stars as I haven't rung it out yet, but as I learn more, I am sure it will rate five stars.

    Comments about Bower 14mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens for Pentax/Samsung DSLRs:

    Great Lens for the price. Images are sharp and have good contrast. I would prefer an auto focus lens but the price difference was to much. Focus distance scale is not accurate, but its not an issue when focusing by eye.

    Comments about Bower 14mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens for Pentax/Samsung DSLRs:

    I have this lens for about 1 week after extensive reading of reviews. There is no complaint in terms of optical quality and build quality. It is incredibly sharp wide open. Everything said about this lens is true. It is an absolute steal at this price.

    Manual focus is difficult, however; but LV solved the problem. I knocked out one star because the lens mount is very tight.
