I have read through most of the posts in this thread and noticed there are a few inquiries about using filters with this 14mm lens. I have been looking into a cheap method and found this 4 x 6 DIY solution for the Nikon 14-24. : http://therocketfactor​y.com/tinkering/?p=133 (external link)

I wonder if this may also work for the Samyang14mm?

Just a few from me, I've always enjoyed shooting my Samyang 14mm at night.

Woah! That first shot is amazing! What lit up the water so nicely?

The light from the stars was enough. Well, that and a long exposure to soak up enough light as it was pretty faint and some work in LR to bring out everything that I could. Thanks for the comment!

Yep! Such an amazing place to shoot the night sky. The Milky Way is the brightest in the summer and the high altitude of Crater Lake make a good combination. Plus it lines up perfectly from North to South during the summer months. Thanks for the comment!

Mind sharing what your settings were?

I'll be going to my local Clark Rubber store after work to pick up some foam (hopefully already black). I'll let you know how it turns out!

I wouldn't mind at all though I'm not sure it'll help much unless you have a SkyTracker. The sky shots were shot at ISO 800 for 5 minutes and the ground shots were probably 1-2 minutes as well, and then reassembled/stitched in CS6. The sky tracker allows me to shoot long exposures of the sky without star trails so it's a bit tough to duplicate without that device. For non-tracking, you can use F/2.8, ISO3200-6400 for 20-30 and get pretty good results.

And here is another taken with the 14mm. Sunrise over the Canyon De Chelly in Arizona:

Another night shot (without tracker). F/2.8, 30 seconds, ISO 3200.

That helps alot actually! Thanks for the explanation.

Thanks. I have a small Cokin "P" series graduated filter(84mm x 100mm) designed for 77mm front filter threads. It is much too small for the front of this lens.

I was thinking a "Z" series 4 x 6"(100mm x 150mm) graduated filter might work but I just did some tests with a clear piece of plastic and 100mm is not really wide enough. The DIY "sponge" holder looks like it has a 4 x 6 Neutral Density filter mounted horizontally, but a Graduated filter needs to be mounted vertically.

The Cokin "X" series would work but they are huge at 130mm x 170mm, and expensive.

Wow, I appreciate the comment! I can't wait to see what I come up with in Glacier and Mt. Rainier NP in the coming two weeks. Fingers crossed for clear skies!

I brought this lens along on a flight recently and am really impressed with the unique shots it allows me to get.

Is there any way to set this up so it does show the aperture on EXIF and AF confirm?



No. Even with a programmable AF Confirm chip, the Exif data will always report it as 14mm and f/2.8
