      Comments about Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Nikon F Mount:

      I bought this for 'astro photography' on my Nikon D7K - hoping to capture the Aurora Australis. It is sharp even wide open at f2.0, but I found that the focus markings on the barrel are not accurate. So do some testing first! This is the first non-Nikon lens I have ever bought and while it is definitely not up to Nikon build quality - at this price you can't complain!

      Great for shooting the night sky

      Comments about Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Nikon F Mount:

      I purchased this lens specifically to do a night shoot. The lens connected to my Nikon D3200 perfectly. After a few setting adjustments on the camera I was ready to start shooting. The lens came with a lens cap, hood and storage bag. I am very satisfied with the results of my first ever night shoot. Great lens for the money!

        Comments about Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Nikon F Mount:

        I use this lens for interior architectural work. Very little distortion and the metering with the Nikon is spot on. Very close focusing for a wide angle, and the corners are reasonably sharp, even @ f 2.0. Great value for the money!

          Comments about Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS Lens for Nikon F Mount:

          Wide angle lenses are my favorite because it allows great depth of field especially for street photography. The 16mm (24mm with full sensor) and f2 make it ideal for average light and more...The manual focus, which is smooth, takes a bit to get use to but the focus is 3 ft. to infinity..what can go wrong.....Stopping down about 2 stops plus, like most lenses, gives maximum sharpness..
