      Comments about Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC Wide-Angle Lens for Canon:

      I purchased this lens primarily for astro-imaging after acquiring the Bower 8mm and Samyang 85mm; both of which yield great stars edge-to-edge on an APS-C sensor. The 24mm lens is not as good BUT still usable if one doesn't mind knocking 10% off the edges...

      If is, however, a very nice portrait lens!

            lens sharp in the middle, very soft at right (or left).
            not very smooth when try to get it repaired.

            Just used it for a video shoot

            - smooth focus ring
            - outstanding image very filmlike
            - lightweight prefect for gun and run

            this one a keeper
