Great pictures lately, is everyone cropping in a little to avoid the stretching in the corners? Or are we applying lens correction?

TIA

Kinda defeats the purpose a little no?

No lens correction, I'm just using the liquify tool to straighten my horizons. I think if you are losing a portion of the image due to lens correction, then it kind of defeats the purpose of having a 14mm in the first place. The distortion is really something on this lens.

Also on the filter holder Samyang are set to release. I think it's a really good thing they're doing, however I'm not sold on the Cokin filters and their horrible colour cast issues. Here's hoping they expand their range to include a high quality big stopper. A filter like that would please a lot of people and possibly even increase sales of the 14mm. Especially since the filter holders for other ultra wides (Nikon 14-24) are just silly expensive, or non existent.

Neither because most of the time it is not needed. I don't crop and I only use PTL mustache correction when it looks very obvious in the photo.

Not true...

Read the rules and regulations:

5. Also clients who bought Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC lens prior to March 2014 can participate in the Promotion.

Got this lens a few weeks ago and thought the fact that it was full manual would be hard to tackle. But I start to like it more and more.

Shot with a Canon T4i/650D.

^Great work^

I already have the 85, but I think I'm going to grab a 35 and 14. Shots like those are the reason.

Could other filters apart from the respective samyang/cokin ones be mounted on this?

Dimensions would be great if anyone has one handy..

The filters are 139mm wide. It may take a 140mm filter, of which there are a few very expensive choices, or it may not. It is certainly designed to be a proprietary system. There are a few of these for sale on Ebay out of China. Price for the holder is about $45 and the filters are about $120. That is pretty cheap for a filter of this size but a lot of people do not like the color cast of Cokin ND filters.

Since I also own the 16-35, I'm thinking of using the Rok solely for Astro use. Here's my question, anyone ever locked focus on a lens? For example, focus it perfectly for star shots once and then find a way to lock it there so there is no guess work when I get out somewhere at night. It'll always be focused where I set it, so I just compose and start shooting. Any ideas? Little superglue on the focus ring, or is this just a bad idea in general?

Bad idea in general. Temperature changes will change the focus slightly, so what is perfect during the summer may be significantly off in the winter.
