Review Date: Apr 3, 2022 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Sharp in centre, Great for astrophotography, very wide. Price is great.
Cons:
Very inconsistent focusing, element easy to damage, manual focus only.

The 14mm Samyang, is a bargain and it's pretty good for the price, with second hand examples costing the same as new almost, you can tell its a good lens, expect very soft corners, coma, vignetting, but a great wide lens and with decent centre sharpness

Pros: Very quick AF, high capture rate, build solid, great weather sealing

Great camera for sports of wildlife, very quick, build solid and dependable, downside are its image processor is a little old now and noise control is quit bad.

Pros: Full Frame, very good low light AF, very good noise control, no AA filter so sharper, light weight and compact for full frame, price
Cons:
Basic settings, AF terrible for moving subjects and is quite slow, weather sealing is very bad.

The entry level Full Frame camera with an out of date AF system, still its an amazing camera for the right situations, low light or astro it's great, landscape photography its great, it produces some stunning results, just make sure you keep it dry. Weather sealing isn't much better than a 5D mk2

Pros: Very Sharp, Good focal lengths, Light weight, Did I mention Sharp!!
Cons:
Lack of IS, contrast a little weak

This lens is one of or if not the sharpest telephoto lens by Canon, it really is great for sharpness, it's also light so great for landscape photography.. The only downside is lack of IS and the contrast is a little weak but that's standard with all telephotos

Pros: Good focal range, dependable and reasonable focus, good image qaulity between F5.6 and F11, good AF

Pros: Incredible sharpness corner to corner even past F14,very well made
Cons:
Slight vignetting at 16mm

Great lens especially for Landscape Photographers or other genres that don't require F2.8 one of the sharpes zoom wide angles you can buy, slight vignetting at 16mm but looks nice, bokeh is weak being a wide angle
