I get the distinct feeling the Samyang and I are going to get on wonderfully...

Using über-wides well is a unique talent, and you've done well here with this one.

Thanks.

I haven't used one in a while so its taking a bit of re-learning. Think I prefer the fixed wide to my old Sigma 10-20mm, less to worry about.

Well done, I like the second the best.

Thanks, Dennis.

I wondered that but the sun is low and to the front left so it can't be - can't work out what its coming from though.

That is a strange shadow... it goes against the grain from the sun which seems to be behind you on the right?

It's the rail. The rail is diamond shape. Why it looks different than the support post.

They have a Samyang/Rokonon 7.5mm one for my Olympus and it is on my short list to get! :D

I'm tempted to get another Samyang when I need/want another lens as I'm impressed with mine. I went with the 12mm as its very well corrected and the wider ones are a bit fishy - fun though.

BP I have the 14 f2.8 and 85 f1.4 both are optically fantastic and the build is great and MF is like butter. The best part with my Oly I get VR(IBIS) since its built into the body.

For the price those Samyang/Rokinon's are hard to beat. Looks like it is in good hands by the samples you have here. Another vote for #2 here, though both are excellent.


Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!
