A bit disappointing from the looks of it, I was hoping for better. Looks like I better just save for the Canon.

Disappointing, but not unexpected. Pretty hard to have great mechanical and optics at that price.

I'd certainly be curious how the Samyang compares to a batch of the original Canon 24 TS-E. I didn't find the old Canon all that bad, once the CA was cleaned up. I would certainly buy a used Canon original at $750-800, over this Samyang.

I don't know.... Stopped down to f10 where many would probably use it, seems ok. Haven't seem CA results yet.

The Canon 24mm TS-E II still reigns supreme. As it should.

For anyone interested, the dissection is posted: http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2013/05/first-look-rokinon-24mm-f3-5-tilt-shift-part-2

Build quality is really pretty good.

The lack of adjustability is not good if you have a bad copy.

I don't see the Samsung as a good value. $1000 is still a lot of money for a lens that is not really right.

I enjoyed reading the tear down Roger. It seems like the Samyang's engineers were able to design a budget lens with decent mechanical and optical quality. The only concern is the rotation-locking levers. Having the screws and levers metal would make photographers less concern about this lens reliability.
Question: I have read reports that their 14mm f/2.8's screws (3) from the metal mount are actually screwed in plastic instead of metal. Is it the same for their tilt and shift?

I'm a 3d artist and could easily mock up replacement plastic parts on a 3d printer..... I wonder if there is any legal issues doing so? If you sell them of course.

Fred, there are some screws into plastic on the tilt=shift, but the plastic is much more robust than the 14 and the screws have thicker threads. I'm much more comfortable with the tilt-shift. The other RokiBowYang primes have, to put it mildly, a fairly short half-life. I think the build quality here, while not Canon or Nikon, is clearly better.

That's good to know Roger. Perhaps they will update their current 14mm with a similar build soon.
Best,
Fred
