p.6 #1 · p.6 #1 · Samyang/Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 Lens for $299 shipped


Got mine this week and took it to work to have a play. OMG the FOV on FF is nuts as is how close the thing focuses. Looks sharp wide open and can'r wait to use on some real landscapes and starscapes.

Now does any one know of a filter kit for the lens? Just mainly want to be able to use ND filters and grads.

The WonderPana Fotodiox systems are big, pricey and heavy but have very great quality. I believe it's the only option for the Samyang 14mm.

Here is a video showing it attached on the Rokinon 14mm...

So any difference between Bower and Samyang? Or is it pretty much the same?

Just keep people centered, within the 'bubble' of the mustache distortion, and it works great. Anything organic outside of that area, though, will look goofy, even if corrected.

Looks good, but I mostly avoid people photography, except when I'm ordered to take Xmas family photos

I tried the Wonderpana polarizer on a Samyang 14mm and had to send it back because the vignetting was so enormous that the only way to use it was to crop the photo to end up with the FOV of a 16 or 17mm…
Maybe the vignetting will be less visible with their ND/grads filters since they are larger than their polarizer but I guess the vignetting won't disappear completely.

For some reasons, it seems like there is less vignetting when using the Wonderpana with the Nikon 14-24mm. I'm not sure but my Samyang looks like to have a FOV a tad wider than 14mm. This might explain the huge vignetting.
Anyway, what a shame to sell this kind of stuff for UWA you can't use for UWA. I mean, if I was looking for a filter system for a 16 or a 17mm, I would get a 16 or a 17mm, not a 14mm…

Thanks for reporting this Henga. Vignetting is probably and issue with all their 145mm circular filters on the Sammy 14.
I don't believe the Samyang is wider than 14mm. Rather, the Nikon zoom is actually closer to 15mm for its widest FL.

I'm not too fussed about a polarizer on a 14mm lens, as long as the rectangular ND filters and grads work that's ok.

As far as I know, only the Grads are 6.6x8.5" rectangular shape.
The ND filters are all 145mm circular filters...
I just tested and can confirm that all 145mm filters I have do vignette on the Sammy 14.
The good news is that none of the rectangular Grads (6.6x8.5") vignette.

I also tested 145mm filters and rect. Grads with the 17 TS-E and there is no vignetting even at full shift (-12mm, +12mm)

Damn, I hadn't realised the ND's were circular. Any third party ND's that are rectangular and that 6.6" x 8.5" size?

It was over, at least two weeks ago, when I went to order mine. As it turns out I could get from HK dealer for far less than it would have cost shipped from B&H even at the discount price. Shipping from B&H and Adorama just about kills the deal for me every time these days. They don't seem interested in OS sales. SE Asian dealers do much much cheaper shipping, typically 60-70% less.

I'm not sure I would like the 14mm FOV on full frame, but a cropper might be OK for me to use this on.
