Review Lens: Samyang Premium MF 14mm F2.4 Nikon

Lens Overview - Samyang Premium MF 14mm F2.4

A super wide-angle prime, the XP 14mm f/2.4 from Samyang is an EF-mount prime that pairs an intuitive manual focus design with a sophisticated optical design. Incorporating 18 elements in 14 groups, this lens utilizes a series of aspherical, low dispersion, and high refractive index elements to reduce color fringing, aberrations, and distortions for sharp, clear, and color accurate imagery. An Ultra Multi-Coating is also featured, as well as a built-in lens hood, to suppress lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in bright, direct lighting conditions. Complementing the imaging assets, a manual focus design is employed that permits working with subjects as close as 11" away, and the aluminum-alloy housing is both lightweight and durable to support working in a variety of conditions.

Super wide-angle prime lens designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, this lens can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 22.4mm equivalent focal length.
The complex 18 elements, 14 groups optical design includes two aspherical elements, one hybrid aspherical element, two extra-low dispersion elements, and three high refractive index elements, which all combine to reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations and color fringing, as well as improve sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for increased contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 11" away.
Built-in petal-shaped lens hood blocks stray light from reaching the front element and also offers some physical protection against light impacts.
Aluminum-alloy housing is both durable and lightweight.
