Blending an autofocus design with a desirable ultra-wide field of view, the Canon EF-mount AF 14mm f/2.8 Lens from Rokinon is a bright, wide prime well-suited for landscape, nature, and astrophotography applications. A sophisticated 15 elements in 10 groups optical design incorporates one extra-low dispersion element, two aspherical elements, and four high refractive index elements to suppress chromatic and spherical aberrations to achieve high sharpness, accurate color rendering, and even brightness from edge to edge. An Ultra-Multi-Coating has also been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Complementing the optical design, the autofocus system makes use of a lightweight focusing group for quick and quiet performance that benefits both photo and video applications. Additionally, this 14mm f/2.8 sports an all-metal housing and is weather-sealed for use in inclement weather conditions.

Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 AF Reviews
Edges too soft
I tried this lens on a Nikon D850. Mine was the Rokinon version but the same lens comes in a Samyang version. Before this I had a Tamron 15-30 f2.8 G2 which was great except it was big and heavy. In use it was fine but it was too much to carry for travel with my other lenses, so I got this because it is small and light and had good reviews. The center sharpness is fine but the edges were unacceptable for my use (and I was stopped down, not wide open in my tests). If you do shoot wide open be aware the vignetting is severe - worse I have seen. Since I want it for landscape and architecture, the blurry right and left side were unacceptable. I don't just mean the corners, I mean the entire right and left side (right side a bit more) from top to bottom, going well into the frame (10-15%). I really wanted this to work as a lightweight alternative, but it won't work for my needs (making large prints with good detail). If you are photographing things that fill the center up close and letting the background go naturally out of focus, then it would be fine. Thankfully BH has a no hassle return policy, as I sent it back today after two days of testing.
I was looking for an astrophotography lens for my Canon t7 and I definitely found it!
Rokinon has refused to fix major flaw in this lens for years
Huge flaw of this lens is that Rokinon stubbornly refuses to fix a gigantic bug, easy to address but they don't care, after getting nagged for years. This lens will not communicate the 14mm focal length over to your camera, even though it's an AF/active-mount lens. So for SteadyShot to work, and for EXIF data to populate correctly (for loading lens profiles, etc.), you have to spend wasteful/priceless minutes probably missing your shot, digging into the menus to manually set it, and then (remember to) switch back to automatic focal length recognition when you swap out the lens.
It is just what I wanted for night photography and great vie
Works well with my D500. Tested it taking pictures at Quart Site AZ and Death Valley.
A winner lens
We compared this lens to the Canon equivalent and found that even at open apertures this lens came so close to cannons results that for us don't justify to spend the money for the Canon lens. We compared the results at 128 magnification. This lens is a winner.
Rokinon AF 14mm f/2.8
It works well, really like the extra wide angle I get from my 14mm. I have a Sony a9 and Sony A7rIII. It allows me, for a very reasonable price, to have one of my cameras as a fixed wide angle and the other flexible, with the 17-28mm f/2.8.
Really very good
At first I was a little concerned that it wasn't sharp enough. But I kept with it, and learned its peculiarities. So after a few days I started to get really sharp images. I'm not sure why...I would have thought that the wider the lens the easier to get sharp images...but there you go. I just used it for a pro photoshoot (even coverage), and the images came out very nice. There are still moments when I feel that I'm getting dull images..the lens doesn't give me that "magic" feel. But it's also not an expensive wide angle. So it does what I need it to. Maybe some day I'll spring for an expensive wide angle.
I bought this lens for Canon EF mount. I also have Fringer EF-FX Pro II adapter. The lens produces great results on both Canon and Fuji XT1 and XT2. Time to take this baby to shoot some landscapes of Arizona!
