| p.1 #8 · What is better than a Zeiss 21mm F2.8 and A850? |
'i thought the samyang 14 was reasonably sized...'
Opinions will vary, according to people's take on the facts of the matter:
Samyang 14/2.8 length: 3.8 inches, weight: 530 grams
Zeiss 21/2.8 (ZF) length: 3.35 inches, weight: 600 grams
I'd say Fly has a case. The Samyang is similarly huge at the front end.
The Zeiss is designed to accommodate 1-2 filters, a choice not available to the Samyang user, as the lens can accommodate no filter at all.
It is also highly recommended for fans of 'hellacious' distortion, to use Ken Rockwell's term. He also has a very demonstrative (read hilarious) image showing just how ugly photographs can get from this lens, about 70% down this copiously white-spaced page:
To think people moan about the moustache distortion of the 21mm Zeiss, lol.
The sentiment that 'it won't have Zeiss like rendering' (let alone the 21mm signature look) is a worthy candidate for understatement of the month.
