^^^ Nice lens!

Can I find this lens new with AF Chip included/installed?
How hard is it to install the AF Chip? Is there a AF Chip install instructions for Dummies?
I want to add this lens with the chip. Thanks.

I bought the lens and chip separately, didn't see anywhere selling it pre installed. I haven't received the chip yet so can't comment on ease of installation just yet but from what I gather it's a bit footery

Let us know what you think. I read somewhere you need to shim it.

AF Confirmation would be nice.

I'll let you know how it goes. I read/skimmed every page in this thread today, early on someone said you had to shim it with a bit of old credit card but further on in the thread someone else installed and said no shimming was required so hopefully it's not needed. I'm not too bothered about AF confirm I just want my 5D2 to know the aperture so that it meters correctly (as you will be sick of hearing :D ). I use magic lantern so get focus peaking anyway

Some people buy a Nikon mount version and then use Nikon to EF adapter that includes a chip: http://www.ebay.com …irm+chip+Adapte​r&_sacat=0 (external link)

You can install the chip yourself but it doesn't always line up properly on the first try. Do a Google search for instructions....

Another thing to mention is that you really don't want to put infinity right dab in the middle, that only tosses away precious depth of field. You want to set infinity on the outer most focus line corresponding to what aperture you're using. Like for 5.6 set infinity to the right hand side mark( or on some lenses it will be on the left hand side)


Like say using this 28mm example, If I set the focus to infinity at 5.6 I will only have approx 4 meters to infinity in focus

but if I set infinity focus on the right hand 5.6 mark I will have about 1.5 meters to infinity in focus.

This is not a really big issue with an ultra-wide, but if you ever move to a lens in the 28-50mm range it can make a huge difference.

That's ok if you have an aperture scale, if not hyperfocal distance setting is best (my rokinon doesn't have aperture scale like in your photo)

Yeah but ML doesn't work if you are looking through the viewfinder.

That's a super-duper image of the Samyang 14mm shot with the 85mm - love the vivid blue colours!

Thanks Pete.

Facedodge - correct, it's only good for LCD reviewing of the shot.
