Default Bower 14mm

I suggest to save $$ and buy a Bower 14mm. Who cares about distortion! A wide angle a very special purpose lens... If you care about distortion, get a TS-E. I took this shot with a Bower 14mm!

I have this lens branded as Samyang 14mm ED AS IF UMC (on Nikon mount) and It is perfect for this kind of money.

I have the Rokinon version. It's an awesome lens.

Default Re: Bower 14mm (Samyang)

I just bought a used Samyang version and I am surprised there are no photos here! So far I am very pleased because it very wide, very sharp, and is very easy to use. (it has so much depth of field, almost everything is in focus)

I had a 17-40 for awhile but sold it because I felt it wasn't really that much wider than the 24-105 I already had, and it didn't make sense to carry around a $600 lens that won't get used much and doesn't even have IS. This 14mm is half the price of a 17-40 and has the added benefit of f/2.8

Some quick snaps from around the house:

The "Lens Sample Photo Acrhive"- "Main List with Links" http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...d.php?t=141406 doesn't list the Samyang Rokinon Vivitar 14 2.8 lens. It only lists the Bower 14mm 2.8

I just sent a PM to the "In2Photos" (Archive Keeper) asking him to link the thread and maybe merge them.

Norwich Cathedral By Matthew Dartford

I was asked to do a bit of promotional photography for the Norwich and Norfolk festival. Nothing too exciting, just run around the city and take some shots of famous landmarks. One of the places I was asked to shoot was the cathedral.
