      Comments about Rokinon 14mm Ultra Wide-Angle f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens For Sony A Mount:

      I love this lens! I am using it with an A99 and have captured some amazing landscapes, skies, wedding images and even some band shots at a live venue. There is definitely some distortion with the 14mm if your subject is not in the middle of the frame. I haven't noticed as much of an issue near the top and bottom of the image it has mostly been on the left and right. This is something you will run into with any wide angle lens. That said... Its nothing that photo editing software cannot fix.

      The manual focus is fast and smooth, I have not once wished I had an AF setting on this lens. I have used it at fast paced events like weddings and live music venues and generally setting the focus to infinity does the trick. This is a solid build and totally worth the investment if you need a wide angle lens.

        Comments about Rokinon 14mm Ultra Wide-Angle f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens For Sony A Mount:

        I bought this lens specifically to use for time lapse photography. The manual aperture control is vital for that purpose. My caution came when I tried to focus the lens at infinity. At f2.8 I found that the lens is focussed at infinity when set at the 3 meter index mark. Since I will be using this with a Sony NEX-5N which has the peaking function, that is not as big a problem as it could be in other uses, but it is an annoyance.
