hi all, new to forum :)

after many hours reading this forum and viewing all the amazing pics I ordered the samyang lens, arrived today, so excited, I am using a 60d camera with it, I was wondering what advice anyone could give me to get the best from this lens, I have set camera to M but still getting very dark pics, it seems I have to set ISO at 1000 in daylight,

any advice would be most appreciated :)

thanks

sounds like you need a slower shutter speed. also, check to make sure the aperture isn't clamped way down. it's manual, you know. ;)

If you're shooting in Manual (M) you're going to change your shutter speed continually depending on how the light changes that is falling on your subject. With manual lenses you can still shoot in Aperture Priority (Av) which may be a bit easier since the camera will automatically set the shutter speed for you based on what the meter believes is a correct exposure.

well, you've nailed the focus! :)

could be brought up about a half stop to a stop in brightness. did you do any/much postprocessing?
