  • I have the Samyang 14mm f2.8 in F-mount. It wasn’t a lens I used much (past tense because I pretty much exclusively shoot m43 now), but in terms of image quality it is easily one of the best I own. It’s a pity about the lack of electronics on the 50mm. Manual focusing and aperture adjustment isn’t a problem, but lack of EXIF data would be annoying enough to exclude this lens for me.
