Samyang 14mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens for Sony E Mount from Samyang is a manual focus, manual aperture, ultra-wide angle prime lens compatible with full frame and APS-C format Sony NEX mirrorless digital cameras. On APS-C format cameras it provides a 35mm format focal length equivalency of 21mm. A maximum aperture of f/2.8 is effective in low light shooting and provides shallow depth of field control. With extra-low dispersion, aspherical and hybrid aspherical lens elements, chromatic aberrations are minimized and sharp, color-accurate images are the result. UMC lens coating facilitates even light transmission and reduces ghosting and flare. The minimum focus distance for this lens is 11".

Compatible with full frame and APS-C format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras.
Maximum aperture of f/2.8 for effective low light shooting and shallow depth of field focus
Aspherical, Hybrid Aspherical and Extra-low Dispersion lens elements reduce aberrations.

    Samyang 14mm f/2.8 reviews

    14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens for Sony E Mount is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens on a7r This is the best wide angle lens that I have found for my a7r. It is very sharp and produces minimal distortion for a lens this wide. I have been very happy with this combination.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens is a great value I am far from being a professional photographer. However, this lens performs well across the entire image. There is some distortion at the corners. However, even at full aperture, this lens gives a sharp image. It is manual focus only but the infinity setting works for anything more than a few feet away. I took the attached photo in Glacier National Park near Hidden Lake in early September, 2015. Camera body was Sony A7s which I purchased from B&H as well. I am looking forward to using this for Milky Way photos.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for A7r My second copy but was worth the wait! This lens is very sharp. There is some distortion that is easily removed with PTLens software, $ online. Tested it against my Nikon 14-24 which it will be replacing, better sharpness in the center and equal on the edges at F8 the Nikon is slightly better at F2.8 No edge smearing or purple edges on the frame with the A7r.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good wide lens for the price. I bought this lens to use on my Sony A7. I am satisfied with it. I've used it for indoor snapshots and outdoor shots such as sunsets. Personalty, I don't think it is so great as a landscape lens. A lot of the detail in far off features is just too small to see. I think I'll use it mostly for architecture and indoor snapshots. Although I intend to experiment with it every chance I get. This is the widest lens I've ever used and I need to learn what use I will consistently get it out for. As far as the images are concerned, I find it has some distortion around the periphery of the picture but overall the image is clean and sharp. Don't worry about not having auto focus. Stop the aperture down a little and get somewhere close on what you most want in focus. This thing is not nearly as fussy as say a 50mm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent wide angle lens There aren't many wide angle options for the sony a7's so thankfully samyang is at least making the effort. The lens itself is very sharp, but it gets a little soft around the edges as I've grown to expect from wide angles anyway. This lens is heavy compared to the a7 body so keep that in mind. It doesn't look quite balanced on the small frame of the sony. With all that said, it makes for some excellent landscape images.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for money I love this lens. Excellent sharpness, and has a very solid feel. One significant limitation is an irregular optical distorsion pattern that is difficult (though not impossible) to correct in post processing. This is an important consideration if you plan to use the lens primarily for architectureal work. But no need to worry about it for landscape photography. All in all, this is a lot of lens for very little money. It does not look or feel cheap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value for the Money I use this for outdoor photography, bought another for a friend for architectural photography. Good Value for the Money...nice to have when you need a wide angle lens
