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 L

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
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-08-25

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.

Can the aperture be adjusted in 1/3 increments for Nikon version of the lens?
Asked by: Saravana Kumar
When using the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens for Nikon F, the aperture cannot be set in 1/3 increments mechanically, but when one sets the lens at the f22 auto (in red) setting, then the f stop can be electronically set at 1/3 increments.

question

Is this lens compatible with filters? If so what diameter?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, due to the round convex shape of the outer front element in the Samyang 14mm Ultra Wide-Angle f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens to assist in correcting distortion and other optical problems, the extreme convex shape prevent standard filters (or lens caps) to be used with the lens. The lens comes with an oversized lens cap for this reason, but we do not have standard filters or filter threads designed for use with the above lens.

Use on d610

Use on d610
Asked by: Ken
Yes. It will work on any Nikon F-mount camera, full-frame or APSC. On newer cameras like the D610, the aperture can be controlled either by the camera or the ring on the lens, exposure is properly metered by the camera, and focused is confirmed by the green dot in the camera viewfinder. On my copy, infinity focus is accurate and reliable.

Yes, it is the standard Nikon F Mount and will work on all of the Nikon APS -C cameras. It is manual focus only but has a focus confirmation chip and will meter. I use mine with a D500 without any problems.
