        I am using this lense with a Canon Rebel. I made the RIGHT choice with this lens as I was told by others that if I wanted the right combination of lense and sky, this was it....IT IS !!!

        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.
