It was only my first week with the 14mm Rokinon/Samyong 14mm F2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens, and I’m a believer! The build quality of the lens is above average, it is mostly metal with the build in lens hood constructed of plastic (lens hood is non-removeable)
The picture came out sharp and clear. The down side of this lens is that because it is a manual lens without any electronic parts, focusing though the viewfinder is tough, as I have to constantly switch to live view mode and press magnifying button to zoom in on the picture to focus. So it’s not a lens for action photography. But if your subject is relatively still, you can definitely get awesome shots with the lens. I even managed to snap a few pictures of our cats.
Enjoy a few shots I’ve took with this incredible lens below.
Update: It is on sale at Adorama’s eBay store (Brand New In Box with Warranty) for just $270 shipped.
Had some fun at the Homestead, FL air show

There will be numerous performers, various static displays to see, a variety of food and beverages for sale, and plenty of fun for the whole family.

Sitting in the car, so I snapped a few shots of the city while we cursing on the road.
