I am sure you are in for a lot of fun.
At 14mm it is pretty easy to get things in focus. Try to focus a bit closer than the subject and enjoy the huge depth of field.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

But this is Samyang topic, why would you post totally different lens samples with even totally different focal length ?

Sorry about that.

But I think it's the same lens.

Well, maybe I am mistaken, so I have removed the posts.

No big deal ;-)a
Samyang 14mm could be seriously confusing with so many other brand names. (Rokinon, Vivitar, etc)

I should sell mine after i get TS 17, but each lens has different aspects or perspective, so i keep both, this Samyang 14 is cheapo anyway.

Our gear list is almost identical. LOL Don't you find the corner sharpness of the Samyang 14 is significantly better than 16-35 F/4 IS @16mm? even when comparing to the 11-24 samples I found the Samyang 14mm still came out on top in the border and extreme corner, too bad the star burst isn't very attractive on the Samyang tho.

Yes, the corner sharpness is better on the Samyang but the electronics of the 16-35 is why I switched. And BTW, you have a great gear list! ;)
