The Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED MC Super Wide Angle Lens for Micro 4/3 gives you approximately a 115deg. view with dramatic results when used with a full frame digital camera or 35mm film camera. With hybrid aspherical lenses, you will produce sharply defined images with a minimum of distortion and chromatic aberrations. This manual focus 14mm lens focuses as close as 0.9' (0.27m) from the lens and has a built-in petal-type lens hood. With some cameras, Shutter Lock must be disengaged on the camera's menu.
Very clear, easy to use.
I recently upgraded to a Canon 6D from a Rebel T3. I bought this lens after reading reviews here and talking to other photographers. This lens took some getting used to as I am not a manual photo shooter but I am learning. The lens is heavy so keep that in mind. I usually haul the camera equipment around in my car and work from there. The pictures I have taken are worth the lens.
This is a great lens for creative photography. It's manual focus so it takes a bit to get used to. Go to roccityphoto.com and search rokinon for a few photos.
I bought this lens for shooting night skies and I have not been disappointed. Its been fantastic so far. no coma or CA and when shooting the recent aurora we had, it really was exciting going back through the files and seeing the quality of the files.
Bought for Canon. great wide angle, good sharpness and contrast for a bargain price, even at wide apertures. Minor drawback is that manual focusing is difficult in certain situations. Distortion is noticeable but can be corrected in photoshop or other tool
I bought the lens for night time shoots but have not had time for that. But it easy to use for my test shots during the my day.
I had the same lens configuration made by Canon (at 4 times the price) but it was damaged just before my trip so I needed a last minute replacement. I purchased this lens primarily for taking pictures of the night sky on my Canon 6D body and couldn't be more pleased with the results. I was very impressed with the pics I took with it in the daytime as well. I would definitely recommend this lens.
Used this lens on my Canon 6D to photograph playground facilities for a web newsletter. Since it is entirely a manual lens, I set the aperture and then employed live view with a Hoodman loupe to focus and set the shutter speed. The images were sharp and the distortion no more than expected and easily corrected in Lightroom. This lens does the job well for wide angle photography and at the price, is an outstanding value.
This lens is cheap but its photos are very sharp and clear. I am happy with it. Never return.
I use this lens for video. I like how wide it is, it gives a special look to it especially for music videos. I love the the wide look it gives.
