question

When using this lens, I get black corners in my pictures, it looks like I am looking thru a tube, is there something wrong with lens, or am I doing something wrong? The viewfinder also shows this black distortion.
Asked by: Anonymous
Mine have no such problem. Very sharp detail especially with Sony focus magnification.

question

Will this lens work on the Sony A7II?
Asked by: Jeremy L.
Yes, it works on my fabulous A7ii, but it depends on what you plan to do with it. Wide open, the lens isn't as sharp as expected. Stop it down a little and then things are ok, given that this is an extreme wide-angle lens which will always have certain limitations. What's more, the infinity index on the barrel isn't accurate. If you put it to infinity, objects three kilometers away are not in focus. Focus magnifying solves the problem, of course. I intended to use it for landscapes and astrophotography but I'm slightly disappointed because the lens can hardly be used wide open. I guess the lens is more suited for an APS-C camera such as the a6000. I'm planning on selling it. According to the manufacturer the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 should work better on a full-frame such as the A7ii.
