Samyang 14/2.8 delayed - No DOF scale?!

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by a._valerio, Oct 8, 2009.

  1. Do you know the IQ from Samyang in general? I would be interested to get a 14/2.8 lens that is smaller and much lighter than my Tokina 12-24. The DOF would be nice to add since this is meant to be for MF only.
     
  2. I saw a review somewhere, and it was okay, but not exemplary. Center sharpness was pretty good, but the edges went south pretty fast.
     
  3. I took a look at the D3X samples. Edges were not very good on 24Mp 35mm sensor but when reduced to 12Mp they were usable. Crop sensor cameras should perform very nicely, I think aps-c covers only the sharp portion of the image circle.
     
  4. DOF on a 14mm seems unnecessary to me - pretty well everything is included within it even at f2.8, and at that aperture the edges and corners will never be sharp with this lens anyway.
