if you have the canon mount version can you still add a chip?

It can be chipped, yes--they're glued onto the regular leads, and will cost you about $14 on ebay.

maybe you'd like to give a try to PTlens, I've found that it's correction of the Samynag is much better than what can be achieved in ACR/LR, straight lines even in the worst conditions:

Great pic. I downloaded the PTLens demo but since the camera does not recognize the lens I never get to choose the Samyang 14 as it tells me that it is a 50mm lens.

Also does not seem to have a profile for the 15 f2.8 fisheye which seems kind of odd. I must be doing something wrong.

Probably the demo version doesn't have the Samyang preset because it hasn't been updated in a while, in the latest full version (8.7.8) there is.

It doesn't have a preset for Canons 15mm -which I had and sold some time ago- but for fisheye correction I would recommend this specific plugin, it works really welll: http://www.northlight-images.co.uk …lugins/fish-eye-hemi.html (external link)

I got the demo version of the PTlens and it really works wonders
This is just a quick edit and no other adjustment have been made
So for $25 I will buy it :)

That is rather impressive. For what people typically buy these lenses for though (known for being a great landscaping lens), it won't really be necessary. For architecture work though, this would be great, assuming it's quick and painless. What's the typical turnaround time on the adjustments? Can you batch-adjust a folder full of images?

Th PTlens does the changes the split second when the image opens in the software. You can tweek inside PTlens and I think you can to batch also. But just DL the demo and try it out.

I think I will now, once I have my lens in hand. Investing in this 14mm seems like a better deal all the time :D

5 minutes! :p It was taken from a trail that starts right from the parking lot of the Marin side of Golden Gate park. I think it was taken at the apex of the first hill. It really wasn't all too much of a walk, which was nice!

Let's talk filter holders.

Has anyone used any on the 14? Is there even anything that will fit at this stage? Do the Lee SW150 ones fit?
