Great Value, great results


I bought this lens when I realised I couldn't stretch my wallet to the Nikon 14-24. This lens requires a bit of practice but you will be rewarded with some super shots. I use the lens for landscape and night sky shots and I haven't been disappointed....

Not bad for the money


Weird lens distirtion with average image quality, I think it would suit lower megapixel cameras as it isn't sharp enough and doesn't resolve enough information for 36 megapixels and above but it is better than some lens in this price bracket.

Unbeatable optics at this price


I use the Samyang 14mm on a Nikon D610 attached to the end of a six metre-long carbon fibre pole, which lets me get shots from an elevated perspective. I also own the renowned Nikon 14-24 but it's a little heavy for this particular task, and its...

Fantastic lens for the money…


The Samyang 8mm Wide angle lens is an excellent lens for the money and the picture quality is excellent. Also, it looks stunning! Yes its quite bulky, yes its quite heavy and yes its completely manual… However, that's exactly why I like it. Rather than...
