Nice...reminds me of Ben Canales (external link)

Also, if you gel the flash with a warming filter, and then lower the color temp in post, you could probably neutralize some of that light pollution...

Hoping to get out myself this evening if the clouds don't blow in...

Cheers! Yeah I dont often use the flash so really could do with a 1/2 cto or something?

Forgot to reply to this, but yeah a 1/2 CTO would probably work. Never tried it, though.

That way the flash (and the headlamp, too, if you were ambitious) would have an orange tint to them. So as you pulled back the color temperature to make them neutral again, you'd also take some of the yellow/orange out of the sky.

Hi guys, got my 14mm samyang yesterday - not sure if this is the right place but as owners of this do you think as per this thread https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1306848 this lens seems a bit soft?

Of is it my focus technique? How do you guys usually nail focus with this? :) Hopefully it is just me and I'll be able to start contributing to this thread!

I cannot get over how tack sharp this lens is out to the extreme corners when stopped down to f/5.6 or smaller. Sharpest lens I've owned. I only wish they made a UWA zoom with the same properties (like 14-24 or 16-35 type range), even if it were f/4, because neither Canon UWA option can compete in the corners.

^ Awesome!

Newish one from me, don't think I've posted it yet. The exif says 24mm for some reason... It is incorrect.

Sorry if I missed it, but what is everyone finally using as a filter on this lens?

Mine is sans filter at the moment. I would love to find a cheap solution ie no lee system. I'm not too keen about cutting a filter to place between the body and lens either.

I actually might try cutting a filter.. although that sounds rather tricky.

A filter in-between the lens and body will most probably not work. Since the filter must be completely on axis in order not to distort the incoming light. Something very hard to do.

I've had fantasies about doing such things with my Full spectrum converted camera, placing a IR or IR/UV cut filter into the inside of a Canon to m43 mount adapter (Olympus PEN).

Theoretically it can be done if you machine an adapter from scratch with a filter thread inside to make sure it is completely on axis. However Its hard to find the time to do such things.

As for me, I have been lurking this thread and thinking of buying this lens, keep the great photos coming! And back to lurking I go.

Nice of you to come out of the woods like the Filter Fairy and give me a fair warning. :D

That's a serious bummer. I saw some options out there but none of them look promising.

My Pleasure :D Your more than welcome to try and experiment, some report that you are unable to focus to infinity.

Have you had a look at this? (external link)
