So after taking delivery of the Samyang 12mm on Sunday I went out to give it a try. So far I'm extremely impressed, it took a little getting used to manually focusing and finally setting the camera to 18mm. It it tac sharp, even wide open and just gets better as you stop down, f:8 or f:11 are it's sweet spots from my initial tests. Couple test pictures.
Hello I need some advice please. I am looking to get the samyang 10mm f2.8 for my Fujifilm XT2 but here is my dilemma. I also have a Canon 5D Mark 3 and I'm thinking if I get the Canon version of the lens and not the X mount I can then get an adapter and use it on both. So will using the Canon version on the Fuji give me any less image quality than getting the dedicated Fuji version or can I kill 2 birds with 1 stone with no problems. Thanks

(Art UK, there's not much for you to slag off in this write up (other than finding street photography offensive, and we know that already), but as ever, I'm all ears)
Just taken delivery of this lens and I have to say first impressions are very positive. It looks and feels like a really nice piece of kit for £240... solid and well put together. I've done some initial shots with it, nothing i want to display on here but again, very promising. There is definitely that infinity focus 'sweet spot' on the focusing ring to find, I think it's literally just on the dog-leg marker, maybe a fraction before it, but giving crystal sharp focusing once found. Very pleased and can't wait to use it on some landscape work and also at weddings for those 'back-of-church' wide shots....
