Should I buy this lens to "replace" my 16-35II on the wide end? All signs point toward yes.

it's so cheap, keep it as an addition. It only takes very specialized filters made by samyang...

the 16-35 offers the ability to take filters.... if that's not important to you, then you can sell it. If only the samyang were able to take 4x4's, I wouldnt be interested in an ultrawide zoom.

Yeah, it's a shame we can't buy this filter holder here in the States.

You can't? That's odd.

I know, but I'm not interested in using eBay.

I want Samyang to properly support their lens lineup here in the States.

I finally got around to finding the sweet spot on mine for sharpness. f/5.6 @ 3m seems to be the best;

Is it hard to edit pictures taken with Samyang 14/2.8 in Photoshop Elements? Is there any lens profile to download? I'm thinking of getting this or Canons 17-40L. Is it easier to edit distortion of pictures taken with 17-40 cause it's communicating with the camera?
