Samyang 14mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A bright and versatile ultra-wide prime, the Nikon F-mount 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC from Samyang features a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture and is well-suited for subjects ranging from landscape to architecture to astrophotography. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements and three high refractive index (HR) elements, which control spherical aberrations and distortion. Additionally, two extra-low dispersion elements are used to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberration for improved clarity and color accuracy. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions. This manual focus prime has an 11" minimum focusing distance and also features a built-in petal-shaped lens hood to guard against flare and protect the front element.

Wide-angle prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 21mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in a variety of lighting conditions.
Two aspherical elements and three high refractive index elements control spherical aberrations and distortion in order to produce greater sharpness and accurate rendering.

    Samyang 14mm f/2.8 reviews

    14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens for Nikon F is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp lens at a great price! I was a bit skeptical about this lens given the low price. But I have seen a number of excellent reviews (as well as a few poor ones) and thought I would take a chance. I have been very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this lens. In tests against my Nikkor 16-35mm zoom at 16mm, this Samyang 14mm is substantially sharper from the center all the way out to the extreme corners. I am using it on a Nikon D800E that really shows lens flaws, and this lens holds up amazing well. There are some distortion issues to deal with. But for landscape work, stopped down a few stops, I think you'll find this lens to be a winner.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The wide angle most economical on the market! Since this is an economical solution, this lens is the best value on the market! It is important to remember that it is suitable for more experienced users because it is a fully manual lens, so it requires the knowledge to infinity focus or distncioa hyperfocal. Its use is always indicated on cameras in use together with tripod, to ensure good stability, widely used to capture landscapes in night shots, and with an acceptable distortion when properly centered, has an excellent open at f / 2.8, the conseguesse best performance in sharpness between f / 8 to f / 16. For the more experienced and who do not want to make use to pay a high price in a wide angle, I recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have I'm absolutely in love with this lens. It has really gotten me back in touch with my landscape side of photography. I will admit there's a little distortion around the edges but I somewhat expected that due to the asphericale shape. I actually have become accustomed to the distortion because for some things it sees a different perspective of the subject and gives a more creative picture. I highly recommend this item to people who love landscape photography as well as low light or night time photography. I'll admit for an ameateur I've gotten some amazing star pictures.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be Careful I bought this lens for use with a Nikon D700. I wanted something that would serve as a very wide lens on a full-frame camera but wasn't a fisheye, and this lens fills the bill very well. It does have some barrel distortion that probably won't be very noticeable as long as you don't take pictures of checkerboards or brick walls. The thing that surprised me was the amount of perspective distortion I got with this lens. Just a very slight tilt of the lens will produce drastic convergence or divergence of vertical lines, so be aware. If you expect it and are comfortable with it, you can get some pretty wild and crazy effects with this lens. It doesn't autofocus, but with a lens this short that doesn't matter very much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exelent for the price The lens is well made, small, light and cheap.It has a strong distortion that is correctable.At f2.8 it give a haze in the image if you shoot in daylight, ans is a little soft. At f4 everything is crisp, on par with the Nikon 14-24mm $$beast.Manual focus is good but it needs you to get a hang of it since the ring is not accurate. The version with the focus confirmation chip for Nikon bodies works great.Great for astrophotography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from impressive *at this price. I shoot architecture with a tripod at f10-f14. The good- I wish all new lenses were built like this. Coloring and sharpness is lovely. The bad- Distortion creeps in on occasion and is hard to fix quickly. This is not my main lens for architecture but I am a fan.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money I use it for landscape photography and it's giving me excellent results so far. Very nice angle (a bit of moustache effect but nothing you cannot fix with Light Room). I like the manual focus feel as it reminds me the old days. Feels robust and looks great on my Nikon D800. The Focus confirm is a great feature to ensure sharpness. This lens represents excellent value for money for a super-wide lens. Highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent images, breathless coverage! I have both a Nikon APS-C and a full frame. It's wide on the APS-C, but the moment you put it on a full frame, it's as if another room opened up. I've always wanted a Minolta Rokkor 17mm Rectilinear ever since I was a teen, so this is a perfect catch for that one that got away. The focus chip is a must. Although not very effective, given the wide angle, on an APS-C, it is more accurate and sensitive with a full frame and higher grade electronics. Ken Rockwell has said this is not a very sharp lens. Obviously it can stand up to something 3-4 times the price, but it comes pretty darn close, once you stop down. I stuck with Samyang, although I could have gone with Bower, Pro-Optic, or Rokinon. For 20 dollars or so more, you are getting it straight from the manufacturer. I wouldn't risk it just to save a few bucks.
