Samyang RF 14mm f/2.8 Review (many strengths and a few shortcomings, D. Abbott)

Samyang RF 14mm F/2.8 Review

Here is a Samyang RF 14mm f/2.8 review. The Samyang RF 14mm f/2.8 mounts natively on the Canon EOS R system.

Dustin Abbott posted an exhaustive Samyang RF 14mm f/2.8 review. The Samyang RF 14mm f/2.8 is a rather fast wide angle lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system.

From Dustin Abbott’s conclusion:

[the Samyang RF 14mm f/2.8 is] not perfect; the extreme corners aren’t super sharp until smaller apertures, and I didn’t feel that the best landscape performance came until F8.  Fortunately the wide focal length means that you can still effectively handhold in a lot of lighting conditions as you don’t need a particularly high shutter speed to avoid motion blur even without image stabilization in Canon bodies (thus far).  I found that even shooting at 1/30th to 1/50th of a second was sufficient to get reliably sharp results (unless I was particularly cold!), and that’s possible in most lighting conditions.  There’s a fair bit of barrel distortion, and definitely some vignette, though all of these are correctable in either camera or post.  There’s no question that you can produce some dynamic, intriguing images with this lens, and the fact that you can do it without breaking the bank ($699 USD MSRP) is just icing on the cake.  It’s also an intriguing option for video either on a gimbal (light weight and good autofocus help!) or for doing vlogging.  By the end of my review period, I had come full circle and appreciated this lens for its many strengths despite having a few shortcomings.  If you want a really wide angle of view and can’t afford the pricey Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS, then the Samyang RF 14mm F2.8 might just be the lens for you.

I prefer to read reviews instead of watching videos so I truly recommend you head over to Dustin Abbott’s site, if not for else at least to see some beatiful pictures of a Canadian winter landscape. For those who prefer to watch reviews, the two videos below should suit.

Samyang lenses are also branded Rokinon, depending by geographic location.
