So the many of you that have this lens you feel it's worth the $$$? I have the 17-40L now and a FF 5D MK II do I really need this lens...Do you ever really need a lens...LOL...

Photos here are quite nice indeed. I stumbled upon this post trying to find another lens and I am pleasantly surprised by the quality I am seeing in the images here.

there's definitely one for the 5D2 samyang 14mm F2.8, one for jpeg and one for raw. Just grab them both.

Strange, mine doesn't show these two profiles. Only 40D. I downloaded/update the application from the above mentioned link :confused:

Evangelos, I bought this recently for my 5D2. I haven't taken many pictures with it yet but it's SHARP, colors are great, handles flare very well and not that hard to use even being a fully manual lens.

scroll through it again, and look again. There are 3 different samyang 14mm in no particular order. The 40D profile says "samyang 14mm F2.8 umc dc" something to that effect.

the 5D2 profile looks exactly like the screenshot. It's just "Samyang 14mm"

Cool thanks for the input seems like I may get one, I was concerned about how hard it would be to use the MF? Long or short throws when using AF?

it's quite easy to MF once you get use to it. Even @ 2.8, I have very little issues with MF. I just use the feet markings, and due to the large DOF, you generally nail the shot. From DOF master 14mm F2.8:

Subject distance 5 ft

Depth of field
Near limit 3.02 ft
Far limit 14.4 ft
Total 11.4 ft

In front of subject 2 ft (17%)
Behind subject 9.4 ft (83%)


the MF throw is the longest of any lens I think, probably close to one full turn.

Why can one take the focus ring past the infinity mark? Is it to focus on what is behind infinity, for those who are spiritually gifted?

I "fixed" the focus ring so now infinity is infinity. Great lens.
