Samyang 14mm f/2.8 Reviews

Good Lens

By Alireza
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-12

I bought this lens for using it in astrophotography (northern lights, star trails and milky way). I could not afford a wide angle fast lens, so I ended up with this lens. For the price this is a great lens as long as you get a good copy of this lens.

Okay if you can focus it

By Gary

I bought this as an alternative to lugging around my 14-24mm AF-S Nikkor, which I mostly used at 14mm anyway. In actual use (as opposed to shooting brick walls), it's hard to tell how good/bad it is because my eyesight makes it so darned hard to focus even with focus aids on the camera. It may find some use for astrophotography, but I doubt I will carry it around for landscapes any more. Still, if you can manage the focusing, it's a bargain for what it is.

Great little landscape lens

Bought this lens on sale because I needed a wider angle for some of my landscape. Was kind of a feeling out for a 14mm and not so much for the lens itself. To my surprise the lens itself takes great photos. Great starter lens for ultra wide angle landscape for those on a budget.

I come from a film background, which included cameras without built in metering systems. This takes me back to those times. I actually enjoy shooting in manual modes as this allows me to adjust the exposure on the fly. When mixed with a very capable camera Canon 6d Mark II, it makes you Pay attention to the details.

Astrophotography with the Samyang

By Jack

I purchased this to use with my Canon R6 (via an adapter). I am predominantly using it for both tracked and untracked night sky images. This is a reasonably fast lens. Since it is totally manual, you need to set the f-stop and focus. Focus is no problem since anything past ~15 feet is in focus, even with the shutter wide open. I did not detect too many aberrations utilizing it as above. Obviously, it gets sharper as you stop it down but, for my purposes, it works well. The attached picture is a stacked group of 13 sec exposures of the milky way with some post processing. I am impressed at how sharp the stars are.

I am still getting used to it. I love the wide angle, for night it is beautiful. Aperture and focus are manual so it is a great practise. Love it.

Great glass for budget price

This is a niche focal length, but if you're unfamiliar to a lens this wide, Samyang is an excellent entry lens. There is a good deal of distortion, but the sharpness and contrast hold up well even to the sensor on a D850.
